I think it would be cool if we could compare all our accents somehow.  Mine is a bit odd.  I speak very clearly, say some things with a little hint of Jamaican accent which gets very strong if I'm talking to another Jamaican. 

In Jamaica we say "Walk Good" instead of "Take Care".

I have enough accent for everyone in Texas
 >:(

I have enough of my remnant NY accent for everyone in Virginia ;^)

Lived in NY for 20 years and Virginia for 34, but no one would ever mistake me for a native Virginian. 

I haven't heard this in a bit, but I do recall in younger years hearing locals use of the term "throw down" as either a noun or a verb.

We're going to throw down this weekend.

For Vermont my first guess would be "Ayot"  - probably not spelled correctly.  It just means kind of like - well, ayot - mostly it means yes, sometimes it means I heard what you said, and sometimes the old timers just say it when there isn't anything else to say

Another local verb is "pull to" as in close. Could you pull to the door?

Throw down also refers to fighting.  I grew up in Connecticut, close to NY so I have a slight New York accent  you can hear when I say couwfee. Like I have a cup of couwfee in the morning.  We were close enough to Massachusettes that sometimes I say get in the caa. I would have to call it a New England accent.

For part of my life I lived in Yorkshire, in the UK. Locals there used the second person singular, for example:

Wheear 'ast tha' bin since ah saw thee? On Ilkla Moor baht 'at.

Where have you been since I saw you? On Ilkley Moor without a hat.

Growing up in Jamaica, one of the funniest things was listening to British tourists in particular trying to understand a very broad Jamaican accent and be understood in return.  The stuff of farce I tell you.  My Grandad was English and, 'cor blimey, he lived in the West Indies from the age of twenty but never did get a handle on the Jamaican patois thing.  The cook would say something to Grandpa and he'd turn to Bama (my Granny, who was born in Jamaica herself) and say  "Molly, what is the good woman trying say?"  As kids we'd die laughing.

Places I have lived in order and length of time...
Richmond, Virginia - 12 years
Scottsdale, Arizona - 2 years
Longmeadow/Springfield, Massachusetts - 4 years
Roanoke, Virginia - 2 years
Eastern North Carolina - 7 years
Woodstock/Atlanta, Georgia - 6 years

My accent depends on who you ask. Most southern friends (used to anyway) say I sounded like a Yankee. My best friend who lives in Maine says I have a sweet southern honey accent.

My favorite local saying is a New England one. Wicked, meaning really cool. "Are you going to the party tonight? It's gonna be wicked." Keep in mind I lived there for high school.

In Jamaica we say "Walk good", instead of "Take care" when we say bye to someone.

"He's country as cornbread" = he was born and raised in the country, and his speech pattern and behaviors are not very sophisticated

"Bless her heart" = you can say anything you want about a person as long as you precede it with, "Well bless her heart". Basically, she's very sweet, you'd never say anything bad about her, but she just did something you can't help but comment on.
