Does anyone else perceive NTs to talk like this?

I gots my owns initiatives see?

For one a-thing I ain't no horler, no sir-ree. I been born and raised in Maine. I don't-s a-knows what I do but it sure as hell works, a-yuh.

To me that's how an NT on average communicates. They use vernacular peculiarites that serve to irritate and confuse. Anyone else perceive this phenomenon?

What does being an NT have to do with that? Seems more to do with where you grew up and who you grew up with.

No. Most NTs don't talk like that. It sounds hillbilly.

To me the first sentence sounds much more Mid-Atlantic urban...just what you'd hear in a mid-century film-noir...or many of my old Philly friends. My wife still says my Philadelphia accent gets much thicker whenever I get mad about something.

I suppose the rest could be backcountry Maine, but I'm not sure...definitely doesn't sound like your typical 'down Maineah' New England-y accent.

Either way, I think they're simply regional dialects, which personally I find fascinating (even if some really aren't pretty or understandable). I think it's a tragedy that modern society seems to be eradicating these...the collegiate/newscaster non-accent certainly isn't very elegant or interesting. If we're going to have one national accent, why make it so milquetoast? Maybe we should all adopt the Coastal Southern accent of Charleston/Savannah...we could perhaps even charm the world back into liking us.

In case you haven't noticed, accents/dialects are one of my special interests. :D

As others said that's a rural southern accent ("redneck" or "Hick" or "Hillbilly"). I feel the same sometimes with how my mom speaks.. :_

Yes, or a portrayal of a black man in 1950s south.

That's a regional English accent and dialect. It has absolutely nothing to do with being "NT" or AS.

That is funny. Rednecks? I love the word hill billy.

Anyway, I do notice lots of people talking about other people's business. Like when I walk through a park and there are soccer moms around, I notice many of the conversations using "She..." as if they are talking about other people. I just notice women always talking about other women and their personal lives while not having anything interesting to say. Men are different because they simply don't talk much.
I like talking to men more than women. Except the aspiettes here are pretty cool.
