I can’t help but be like yaaaaaaaaaaaaay Manchester cause it’s where I’m from
Hmmm… I think to Cian’s point, it’s harder to pinpoint accents from places you are not so familiar with. And, over here, accents tend to blend more, and cover a larger area. I mean, I can tell by accent if someone is from the south, or New England, midwest, or Great Lakes, but I’m not going to easily be able to tell the difference between, say a Chicago and a Detroit accent, and they’re 237Mi/382KM apart. But on any of the UK accents, I’m going to have a harder time pinpointing the differences.
When it comes to accents from the states, the accent I can most easily identify is the one I least want to hear. Hearing the “southern twang” causes me physical discomfort. I have an atypical nervous system with some odd side-effects, and that’s one of them.
Ah, but there’s many different varieties. I live in Ohio, and that twang starts in the southern part of this state, and heads all the way down to Georgia. There are some slight differences in it, though, depending on where. Flordia has so many snowbirds that there isn’t just ONE dialect there.
