they missed out ebonics!
and whatever it is that latinos speak (not spanish!)

and how is it that you have such a big country with so few regional
dialects?
in britain you have highlands, glaswegian, lowlands, geordie, yorkshire,
lancashire, mancunian, scouse, n.wales, s. wales, mancunian, brummie,
east midlands, east anglian, home counties, cockney, south west.
and that's just the ones that any brit can differentiate.
there are often differences between towns only 10 miles apart. people
in sheffield can recognize a rotherham accent.
i guess it's cos you are all so mobile.
i heard upper midwestern in the upper peninsula of michigan and it is quite different to normal midwestern, not quite canada but getting there.
