I thought this would be interesting to run this poll. My accent is Southern. But don't be fooled, there are several different types of Southern accents.
There's the genteel southern accent of the Southern aristocracy that sounds like they have butter in their mouth, see Kevin Spacey in the Movie Midnight in the garden of good and evil for an example. There's redneck of course, which sounds like there's crab pinching one side of a person's face (and sort of looks like it too) think Larry the Cable guy.
Then there's people that are just sort of remote, reference Forrest Gump for this type. Then there's God's gift to the English language, the Southern Belle accent. Jodie Foster in Maverick attempts to copy this accent, but the real McCoy is a little bit deeper and slower. There's a twang that is dead sexy to any man born beneath the Mason-Dixon line that we can't resist.
For instance, my Aunt Hazel pronounces my Uncle Charles name as "Challs".
