It's as cool statement as "all Japanese language except Kyoto dialect is not 日本語". (゜3゜)

Haha. Yea, here in MD there really isn't much of an accent state wise. Partly because in maryland a lot of different ones collide, and phase each other out a lot.

Like in my area, southern MD, you get a lot of the accent flooding over from Virginia and West Virginia, but enough of the redneck accent to counter it. whereas IIRC the more northern maryland will sound a lot more like Pennsylcania and New Jersey.

But then everyone works in DC, so the only times you really see any distinct accent is when they don't commute to DC, and they're family isn't from two different accents.

A lot of times, you won't notice the accent, as least among the marylanders i know, until an individual is angry. But then when that happens it can be pretty interesting. Nothing quite like seeing two people get into a fight and start using New York Ghetto slang with a Southern Drawl in their voices.

And yea, I'll admit, I'm guilty of using ya'll because of MD.

Keep in mind though, you live in MD so you wouldn't really notice much of an accent where you live. Just like I live in NJ and don't really notice it.

I'd agree with you, but there are a ton of people who come to my Universtiy who are from out of state, and except for those with a very distinct (read: thick) accent, they sound just like the rest of people from maryland, so I'm going to disagree there.

Also, in High School, my English teacher was from New York, and she conciously suppresed her New York accent to no accent on a daily basis, and it never sounded different from the colloquial converstaion (well colloquial for most of us anyways. For a few, colloquial was a bit more on the vulgar or ghetto side of dialect and speech.)

.... It made it quite easy to tell when she was about to blow, because you'd start to see her control over accent falter as she got fed up with certain students. (When she finally did snap one day, her accent was so thick, I could barely understand her.)

Speaking of rednecks... My TEFL teacher said we should never ever say in class "I just saw her in the hallway," which is ok in American English. But when British hear that, they will think "Oh god, what is wrong with these foolish rednecks!" British would instead say "I have just seen her in the hallway."

Is it true that British get mad when they hear "I just saw her in the hallway"?

They like it passive, if you know what I mean. ;)

No, because "mad" means "crazy" in British English. We might think it was a strange way to put it, but that would only because we don't usually say "hallway". The "I just saw her" bit sounds fine to me. ^^

"Just saw" is perfectly acceptable in New Zealand.

That's a great game for the dating lovers. I have played this too much in the recent years and it is very famous among my friend circle. When I was playing it too much my wife had a gut feeling he’s cheating no proof. But I showed her that I 'm just playing a game, I don't have any extra marital affair.
