Well in America...... Those southerners have a twang in their voice that can be settling and unsettling just the same.
Those Eastern folk are also a bit off.
And people in California are just wrong for the most part, but wrong in a good way.
People near me..... Well the movie Fargo has one interpretation but it is not correct.

There is no US state in which people cannot be found whose speaking inflections will not sound unfamilar to someone.

While we're here -- Sr Bong hit -- let us also clear up a misunderstanding that persists among so many Californians in their isolation beyond the great basin desert and mountain ranges.
The speech once characteristic of rural southerners is not called a twang but, rather, a drawl (. . . A pattern also heard among great numbers of Californians due to heavy migration to there of disadvantaged people of the south.)

Twang refers only to a kind of nasal speech inflection characteristic of the north, particularly the northern midwest, such as around Illinois and closeby states - but not extending up along the 49th parallel, and Canada, where Scandinavian inflections are commonplace..
