At my last count, there were thirty-two regional dialects around America. That’s a lot. Maybe some phrases or words are shared between dialects, but there are still distinctive words that only locals know. I myself am from Alabama (Roll Tide!), two states below the area in the video below, and I still heard a lot of new words, except for “yall” and “yonder”.
For a little comparison (cause i ain’t that schooled in dialects, yall), I trolled around YouTube, to find a good example of my Alabama dialect so that you could see the difference between just these two regions:
Could you hear the difference? Actually, I have heard stronger accents than Maddison’s…where people talk much slowar, chewin’ thair words a little bit. Nonetheless, watching Maddison made me homesick.
