I don't dislike any particular accent, but the ones I hate people imitating are anything from the Eastern Seaboard and Southern accents. If you're not from there don't talk like it.

Haha, I've noticed people tend to do this in the Lehigh Valley area of PA but haven't heard it elsewhere really. I don't know where it comes from but it just seems the wrong words are emphasized. Pretty fun to imitate though haha.

That Northern City Vowel Shift stuff I know starts around Utica and goes as far as Wisconsin.

Id say Albany is a mix between that and New England.


"Wicked" is a NE thing, but said Upstate.

Nope. Chinese people don't speak French either.
