    Re: How Do You Talk?

    Re: How Do You Talk?

    Reno, Boise, and Spokane.

    Weird.

    Lived in the Midwest all my life and spent about 8 months in Kentucky for a coop. I guess it was pretty deep red all through the country except south of the Mason-Dixon line and in the Northeast

    Des Moines, Rockford, Detroit. Apparently Pop is very distinctive to Des Moines and Detroit, and "Kitty Corner" is distinctive to Rockford, Illinois.

    Wouldn't be dumb****s would it?

    Re: How Do You Talk?

    I was born and live in SW Iowa. I got Des Moines, Omaha and Lincoln. My sister got Des Moines, Omaha, and Kansas City. I wonder which question we said differently to get the change from Lincoln to Kansas city.

    Re: How Do You Talk?

    Madison, Milwaukee and Tucson.
    I was in Madison once for 2 days, Milwaukee for about 1 hour just passing through and I have never been to Tucson.


    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.

    If you call soda "pop" it's you.

    Re: How Do You Talk?

    Des Moines, Omaha, Wichita. Was sort of expecting to see something in the North Dakota/Minnesota pop up as being up there for a year and a half some of the accent is starting to wear off on me.

    Rockford, Aurora, Madison. Grew up in Clinton, which is dark red on my map, so close enough, I suppose.

    Close to me. Rockford, Aurora, and Detroit.

    Makes sense since I went to grade school in Illinois. I was born in Massachusetts but that is the area I'm furtherst away from in my patterns.
