I wasn't familiar with a Michigan accent. I found this video
youtu.be/Pqhy2ejuGLU

I started laughing when he said mi'in for mitten, because my older son has always said buh'in, for button and he was born and raised in Cali.

Let me know if this kid has a Michigan accent. =)

My family came from Ste. Genevieve - about 60 miles south of St. Louis. Several of them are still there

Good one, Dave.

I don't think I ever would recognize someone as being from Michigan. I have a cousin still living there who grew up there and I never noticed an accent different from the rest of the family.

I guess in some areas of the country people would have the kind of accents their ancestors had several generations ago. I know that in Minnesota there have been many with Scandinavian accents like from Norway. I never noticed in Illinois, but across the river from St. Louis is a large German area. That's where my Mom's ancestors were from.

I recognized strangers in a restaurant as being from Michigan.

I didn't interrupt their meal or anything! We were sitting by a fireplace waiting for tables.

I'm the only person I know that doesn't have an accent. Everybody else does, though.

Everybody has some kind of accent, though many people don't believe it. I think most of the midwestern and western states of the U.S. have the same type of accent (or close to it). When I was in college one of my professors guessed where I was from and guessed either France or Missouri. He was close with Missouri, but I only lived there for 9 weeks and was too young to develop an accent then (born there, moved to Denver at 9 weeks).

I don't have the type of accent that would give anyone any idea of where I am from. Maybe if I was in the south for a while, since I picked up that accent when I was in Kentucky the week or two we were at Kentucky Lake.

haha, I'd love to hear your accent MaryAlice! How interesting that you have a British accent as well as Texan.

I have family in TX; one set of grandparents started out in Granbury and then moved to Humble.

My mother was born and raised in San Diego, CA and she says words like warsh and it just cracks me up. I live in the south and they KNOW I'm not from around here, but I'm bringing my family back to its roots. Interestingly enough, in middle school a girl who didn't like me much tried to make fun of the way I talked and asked if I was from the south and she didn't have a response when I told her I'd only ever been to Texas once for a week, but had lived in the county of our school all my life. I shoulda asked, "cat got yer tongue?" lol

Yes, I'm told I'm the only person they know around here that has a Texan drawl and a British accent. Daddy is 4 generation Texan and I live in Texas now. Mom is first generation American. She was raised in New England by by British parents.
