other than ppl from new orleans or maybe ppl from the coast of sc, i can't tell ANY southern accent apart. you pretty much all sound the same.

the only way i can possibly tell is by the words used (as far as slang).

maybe you guys feel the same about those of us from the north..?

You know it's weird because i can SORTA tell the difference between the borrows of NY. However, I can't tell the difference amongst Philly and NYC. Boston is fairly noticeable. I guess one way to notice the difference amongst southerners is the deep south has more of a drawl while the upper south/Texas/Oklahoma has more twang. Southern accents [with a few exceptions] are just small variations of other southern accents.
