Well, I know you have "village" talk, which is what happenes
when you have people whose primary language is not English, be
it Yupik "eskimo", but its not all the same. you can hear the
Athabaskan peaking out in Indian areas..

Then you have people who are often Oil people, and many of them
speak a version of Southern you hear in Texas/Lousianna and
Arkansas area..

We are still working things out..

Myself, I speak alot like someone from Boise area (New England
forms), but got a bit of Texas and like as well. Even Gal..

Do not get me near people from the south, I will sound like
them.. Its easy..

Even can do a good passible london or oxford, and even make a
stab at Aussie or Zealander..

Or German speaking English.

But the major things is a colony of southern speakers here, but
also the villagers and their odd ways of things, but its all
