    i blame the 5% yankee on having drivin all over the united states and on having a brother that lives in ohio, and having spent a lot of time up there. also, on the basement/cellar question, if you have living space or a bar or something down there, then its a basement; if you have nothing but junk and preserves, its a cellar.

    I know for a fact that I have a mostly Oregonian accent, New England and Neutral. I pronounce "Advertize" with an S, and I never use the word "Bought"
