I've been reading about West Virginia, but most of the information I get is all about the southern part of the state--like the coal mining and the hollows and extreme poverty. Does the northern part of the state also have these things? Do people from both parts of the state speak in the same dialect and have the same slangs/terminology?

All parts of the state speak American English, but the southern areas are more prone to have the Southern Appalachian accent applied to it. The northern areas talk more like Pittsburghers, but seldom use the "yinz" form of you. There are distinct differences between the area of the state south of the town of Sutton, and the areas north of there. Every state has regional differences. Ours is no different in that regard.
