    Well, it's a large number of variants in both cases, I'd bet. Around Boston alone, there's a difference between East Boston and South Boston and Somerville, Lynn, Cambridge - each is slightly different. I used to work with someone from Somerville and someone from Lynn - check a map, they're not that far apart - and they sounded different and used to make fun of each other's accents.

    Every time Ken gets to go to the NYC / NJ area, he comments that he's going where the people don't have any accents.

    People have told me I have a Boston accent, so at least it's not one from the Mohawk Valley (that one is called the MoVal twang in our family).

    In my youth in northern Minnesota one could usually tell by accent which of the surrounding little towns a person came from. These were communities as small as 100 people and none larger than 2,000.
