Rich Aschmann has created a very cool dialect map of the United States, with extensive audio samples included. Check it out.

I'd give my right arm to be ambidextrous.

My goodness. The dialects are much more varied back east than they are here.

Does one map really cover it? Depending on local living patterns of different races or ethnicities, I would imagine many cities have more variation within them than there is variation across major line (like between Central Midland and South Inland in southern Missouri).
