Subject: Re: Questions from inside: Southern accents

Living in Alabama I have noticed some variations in the accents in recent

years but I still do not see a lack of accent. The intermiongling with

people from other parts of the country. In the last year we have just moved

back to Alabama and I have noticed my seven year old has become well adapted

with the dialect already. She has never been in the state before and now she

is beginning to talk like a true southern belle.
