Interesting! Love the map!
"How the states got their shape" had a segment on this. Their map had a different language line running right down 71s with a squiggly accent going up 33. LOL
Anyhow, I get a kick out of different English accents, no matter what they sound like, but to be honest, I don't think Columbus born natives have much of an accent at all. At least i've never been told so.

Oh, I will have to look that up, on how the states got their shapes. That was on TV and I missed it.
When I was in Columbus, I didn't notice too much difference in accent.

I have relatives in Indiana who have a slightly different accent than we do here. People in northwestern Ohio sound about the same as Hoosiers do.

I hear more "other" languages a whole lot more than other native accents. Our so-called accents come from people who speak English as a second language.
Go into any Walmart in Columbus... Everything is spoken/written in either Spanish, Arabic, Ebonic or Welfare.
Anyway, after exaggerating a bit, and back to the American dialect. As long as it's an accent and not just junk slang used, I find accents interesting and sometimes amusing towards the character.

The ones that sound unique to me are the southern state's accents. Like South Carolina, Mississippi Louisiana and Alabama. Not so much Georgia and Florida.
But, if we brought in other countries English accents/dialects in the mix, I think European and Jamaican accents are cool.

the map lumps northern Ohio together with Wisconsin, Minnesota Northern Michigan and Iowa.

That's not right at all.

I agree with you.

The vikings and cheese heads have an accent.

You just can't understand marble mouthed clevlanders or Detroit.

Not if you are near the Ohio river in Indiana or Illinois. They sound more like Kentucky than the rest of Indiana.

They sound about the same in Florida as we do, because 90% of them are from Ohio LOL.

That's true, it's more of a eastern Kentucky dialect.

In the deep southern states and even in Scioto Valley region of Ohio, you have to listen closely and ask someone to, "say again" if you didn't understand them. Even the word Scioto, is pronounced Si- oh- da, no O sound on the ending.

you should try to listen to folks from Louisiana speak.

I can't decipher 60% of the noise coming from their mouth.

They are nicknamed coonazz. but jumble mouth much more appropriate.

Clevelanders don't have an accent at all, and they don't talk with marbles in their mouth! You're so funny!
When in the south I love when they say,
"y'all come back now,ya hear!"
Lol
I think the map was just a generalized area...we sound nothing like the cheeseheads.
I do love the Jamaican accent, English accents, and Australian accents!

Yes, when I was in Kentucky they had a heavier accent.
I think the heaviest is in the Deep South .......can't understand what the hec they're saying sometimes.

Florida is too hot for me. When I visit my sister in our winter months,it's still too hot. Ugh!
I do love the ocean though.

I never shop at Walmart. Thanks for the warning, though!

You are correct, about adding flavor to the character with an accent!

My stepson lives north of Austin Texas in a (not by design) Ohio enclave. Half his neighbors are from Ohio and they have block parties during every OSU game,lmao.
