What exactly is Dixie english?

English spoken in the southern part of the US. Includes words like "y'all", "ain't", "grits" and "you shure got a purty mouth fer a boy". Think the rednecks in Deliverance.

Oh ma gawd!!! Guess Aussies really can't do it huh?

You'd be surprised how close that is, really :)

Also, fun fact since we're on the subject: When Jamse Marsters was first doing some reading for Spike, he tried doing him with a Southern drawl instead of the lower-class London accent.

Really? I never knew that. I reckon he pulls the cockney off perfectly. I think southern drawls are fun, when I was out in the states around Georgia they all talked funny, welll actually they talked funny everywhere but particularly there. Oooh and Boston people, you're not from there are you?

No, I'm actually from the South. Alabama, not Georgia.
