I never thought I had a southern accent until I meet some people from up north and they were laughing every time I said y'all.

I'm British and where I live it's pea-can and ca-ra-mel - but my aunt who lives in Georgia says it the southern way.

I live in Northern Indiana and the differences are vast among the state. If you are from Michigan just a few miles north you put an S on words like Walmart and Kmart and Target.

If you live south of Indy you have southern draw.

We say purse - not pocket book

Drink Pop - not soda

And our state flower the peony in the north is ~pee a knee~ on the south its pee Oh nee.

My Dad (born and raised in Albany NY) said "warsh" and "thee ATE er" (theater).

No idea where that came from

I grew up in central Illinois, which is very divided. People "worshed" their cars; my family drank "pop" or (very rarely) "soda pop;" everyone was "you guys;" I wasn't very fond of "pee-can" pie; we used "carts" at the store; "Sell" and "sale" were two different words; and we used a "dolly" to move heavy items.

Now, I live in North Carolina (southern piedmont area). People "wash" their cars; we drink "soda;" everyone is "y'all" (often misspelled as "ya'll"); I'm still not fond of "puh-cahn" pie; we shop with "buggies;" "Sell" and "sale" seem to be interchangeable; and we use "hand-trucks" to move heavy items.

Too funny!!
