I am wondering about dialects/accents in the United States. I can recognize a southern accent and a somewhat exaggerated New York accent but that is where it stops. Via different reality shows et cetera one is exposed to the local way of talking in different parts of the United States. For instance, I can't hear a difference in the Real Housewives of Orange County's way of talking as opposed to the Real Housewives of New York City's way of talking. I know my flair for reality shows is worse than kitschy but please overlook this flaw of mine. So to my point, what I am asking of you on this lovely and helpful forum is to help me learn the difference between an East cost accent, West cost accent and a Midwest accent. I know it is hard to explain an accent in a forum and if this is not quite possible can you give me examples of known/famous persons who speak either East, West or Midwest accents that I can look up on google video. Since I can't differentiate between the Real Housewives's accents it is best if the person you are refering to speaks his or her accent somewhat exaggerated. If you find any grammar mistakes in the above text please educate me in that matter aswell as the accent matter.
