Default Language and regional dialect

How many of us have picked up the phone to hear, "Ay'll bayut yew don't know hew this ee-is."
Those who have not are missing conversations with one of the most delightful steamboaters in the land. I refer to Captain Charles H. Stone (his family name is pronounced "Stay-own" in his pure West Virginia-ese). In addition to an interesting accent, he always has something interesting to say.

We should listen more to characters of his kind. We'd learn a lot.
