Hmm, Spanish with a southern drawl. I'd like to hear that.

With transplants, it really doesn't matter. Hell, my grandfather lived in Georgia for awhile, so perhaps we should start a new thread "what is the furthest south you've ever heard a Bronx accent" ... I'm just happy that so many of us still have our regional accents intact, it would be a sad world without them.

I'm sure there's some of that in Texas.

But not everyone in the west has an audible spanish influence.

Kenai, AK, at a garage sale. I correctly guessed his accent from Texas. Said he lived in AK for ten years. He still had the accent. I met several other residents in Alaska, transplanted from Texas.
