The United States is a big place. People have different ways of saying all kinds of things. Whenever you meet someone from out of state, it can be a lot of fun going through the differences in our accents and word usage (remind anyone of dorm life back in Freshman year?).
As someone who’s lived in the south his whole life, I think some of you Yanks talk pretty weird, but regardless, y’all’ll all get a kick out of these maps.
