That accent was in a movie...so it's not actually real. The setting was Alabama in the 1920s-1930s.

Minnesota, I contend, is one of the most unusual, and can be quite annoying to the unacculturated ear.

While this isn't the most accurate representation, because they're actors, you get the idea.

Reminds me of when I met a young lady from "Minna-SOH-ta", as she pronounced it, a few years ago, taking a course in a small college town on the western edge of the Appalachians, Berea, KY. I asked her where she was from; she told me (as above) and inquired my whereabouts, then continued: "Ooh, yoo guize hyev sohch strohng eck-cents!"

I told her she would probably hear accents much more pronounced than my own central Kentucky speech while she was in town. Nice young lady, but I never did get back to her to see what she thought after a week of immersion in border-southern Appalachian speech.

I think I'll have to go with the more exaggerated version of the northern cities vowel shift accent. It really gets on my nerves after awhile.
