How to Speak Midwestern
We know other parts of the country have regional accents, but is there a Midwestern accent? You may be shaking your head right now, but Edward McClelland, author of the book, How to Speak Midwestern, says we talk through our nose, overpronounce our “r”s, and say “pop” instead of “soda”. More on why we talk the way we talk, on The Sound of Ideas.
