Your local dialects
A while ago I did a thread about dialects in general in the same section . .
This thread is supposed to be about the dialects spoken in your respective areas , no matter the country . .
An example about my area. The people of Lower-Saxony of which Bremen is a part in the long run (Bremen is a city-state ) don't really communicate a dialect anymore . .
In old times they gave up their 'Plattdeutsch' ( Northern German ) for Hochdeutsch ( standard german ) . . I already gave the development behind this occurance in the other thread.
So . . not really any 'Plattdeutsch'-communicators in my area. ( the Plattdeutsch-talkers in my area are mostly farmers or very down-to-earth people ) . .
However , despite us communicating Hochdeutsch we still have a strong Northern German accent , some say . . Which means , despite talking relatively neutral hochdeutsch we can be detected by our acccent.

Thus far concerning me . .

What I know about the dialect-situation in other countries . . .
I know that the USA also has different accents to say the least , the British Isles , that inside France for example it is said that the people of Paris talk 'the most understandable French' , that Castilian is the 'purest form of Spanish' , for example . .
I would be curious about people from Eastern Europe ( I know we have some here ) and of course also other nationalities.
