OK, the little table doesn't display correctly and I don't feel like going into the html to figure out why. But basically, just imagine that the first bar is at 80%, the second at 75%, and the rest progressively less.
I find this interesting, because apparently I picked up quite a bit of the Ohio accent when I was at Ohio State. This could be partially because the 'rents lived in Ohio for a number of years before I was born, so maybe they had some influences and I picked those up from them. I always though my parents had no accent, but when my roommates in college met them, I was told they had Southern accents (Dad's from Arkansas, Mom's from Florida). So I've had quite a bit of influence from different regional accents over the years.
And I used to call carbonated drinks pop, but only because I lived in Ohio. In D.C., we called them coke. You would go to a fast food restaurant, say "I'd like a coke" and they would say "What kind?" In fact, I had a brain fart the other day where I ordered a small coke and was surprised to find out that she actually gave me a Coke. Now I think I say soda. I'm not really sure where that came from.
