Has anyone come in and said that some people (I've noticed mostly Italians) in NJ, LI & parts of NYC (Queens) say "yous" instead of just "you"?

I find it hysterical!

True. I was in AZ and moved to NC after puberty. I get asked where am I from all the time because I don't sound like I was born here.

...That and I ain't eating vinegar based BBQ. Foh.LOL

I love NC bbq!

Especially pulled pork pulled fresh out the pig! Sounds awkward but I love it!

I get the same thing, I'm from Indiana and essentially had no accent. But college in NC and now living in NYC has me sounding..."unique"!

There's one for you.  When you say Washington, are you talking about the state or DC?  LOL

I'm from Seattle...and I always tell people Seattle, Washington and they ask oh DC? Also, people on the east would say I sounded country, while people in Cali, the South or midwest would say I sound properLOL After living in NY for 6 years...my accent neutralized
