    is only southern when you go south of Fredricksburg.  And even then, Hampton Roads is debatable.

      I've ever heard (and I've lived or traveled through much of the South) was from a co-worker from Suffolk. His words flowed like honey. Much of the rest of Virginia, including Richmond, sounds like a speech impediment.

        Has a great accent.  It speaks well to its Jeffersonian roots.

          but I was good friends with a family from Nelson County. Their manner of speaking was, shall we say, hardly melodic but quite entertaining.
