Yeah, I like the idea of a video about differences in accents and speech and culture. Or maybe it would work for a Kast sometime?
Something I find really interesting along these same lines is the different phrases or sayings people use in different parts of the country. For instance, until I moved to NC I had never heard the phrases "might could" or "might would" or "might should"...as in "If my ISP would cooperate this morning I might could post on the Kommunity."
My husband's family uses a phrase that I've not heard anywhere else, although they don't think it's something they made up. They say "I hope to shout!" meaning something like "You'd better believe it!" For example, if I said to my sister-in-law "Kathy, will you watch the World Series if the Cardinals make it?" she would say "I hope to shout!"
heh heh, Stereotypical accents around the entire country would be an interesting topic to cover. For example, Minnesotans apparently elongate the "O" sound when talking and it supposedly gets worse the further north you get. lol I haven't noticed myself but that might have something to do with the fact that I live in Minnesota. ha ha
