I was raised in Kansas, but Dad was from Oklahoma and Mom hailed from Louisiana (which is pronounced LOOSIana, not LOUISEiana, thank you very much). They also spent 10 years in Chicago (no idea what part of my accent owes its origin to that part of the country). It always took awhile for our accents and idioms to inch back up above the Mason-Dixon after a week or two at Grandma's.

My mom always said AREange, too - and she was definitely not from Boston.

It's a lot more interesting than everyone sounding like they came from Nowheresville, anyway.
