Not surprisingly, I speak like people in Ohio speak.

Quiz put me in Ohio too (Columbus, Cincinnati, Toledo) but I'm bred, born and raised within a 5-mile radius of DC. Huh

Yabut, where were your parents from? Your teachers? Your friends? Consider

Ohio for me.

I'm not anti-social. I'm pro-solitude. Sleepy

Mother's from Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. Father's from McLoud, Oklahoma. Went to a Lutheran School so I'm guessing Missouri for my teachers. My friends are black and were bred born and raised within 5 miles of DC like me.

I guess if you triangulate Cape Breton, McLoud and Missouri you could very well end up in Ohio. Big Grin

Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

I was also placed in the state of Ohio, though I was born further north and I was raised in the south.

I suppose Ohio is where people speak properly.

Ohio

I was raised in PA, spent some time in MN, and then moved to NC 15 years ago. Some of the words I recognized, but I haven't used them since my younger days in PA. They are no longer used in my vocabulary.

Well New York, of course. The thing is there are heavy accents in certain regions, especially Brooklyn.
