  2. I remember thinking that when I was visiting Tallahassee, that northern florida/sourthern georgia was more ’southern’ than where I lived (tampa bay).

    A big part of it was going to northern states as a young adult, and finding out that people expected me to talk like a hick. Its a bit strange, really, because my parents are both from Louisiana, yet they have no drawl or inflection that would suggest they were from the south either.

    In fact, most of the people I know are completely devoid of any kind of accent whatsoever, unless they come from Boston or Maine or New Jersey or whatever. Kind of strange, isn’t it? Must be something in the water.

    I do say ‘ya’ll’, but not all the time.
