sprechen sie american?

pbs is showing do you speak american tonight!

it's a three hour special focusing on different dialects and various other aspects of english as spoken by people in assorted regions of the united states.

since i am a fan of etymology and linguistics and, well, let's face it, i just think that people from maine and texas sound kind of funny, i'll definately be watching it!

(and to answer the question that might arise due to this topic...yes, i am from the southern u.s. and no, i don't have a southern accent. most people think i'm from chicago.)
