Location: NW Florida
English
Georgian (US)
Alabamian
Mississippian
Lousianaian (not much though, too much Cajun mixed in)
and of course Floridian - a mixture of all of the above plus more, like in south Florida non-native Floridians (we call them "Snow-Birds") say Ruf - as in dog woof - when they actaully are trying to say Roof.

Enough Spanish - German - Arabic to get me by if I happen to be stranded in whatever country. Can read more of it than actually speak it.

I never would have believed it until after I lived in The South for a few years, but yes, they'all speak a bit differently and I can now peg a person's home state by their inflection.
