What is surprising to me is that just a few miles from me, as the crow flies, across the river, the dialect changes. The folks on the Calhoun Country side of the River speak softer and a little slower, giving the impression of living a lot more settled and comfortable life, then on my side of the river. I think that they are also less prone to profanity over there too. I find it very pleasant. Their lifestyles are not much different but their language is.

Also in Portland, Oregon. The public water fountains are known as Benson's Bubblers, after the mayor of Portland whose idea they were.
I watched a video recently in which a young Brit "expert" did about 27 limey accents, and one American. one size fits all.
