I am not a mid westerner I am a New Yorker born and raised in New York City,and as such proud of my Brooklyn New York accent. what bugs me is that the news on T.V. will never have a native New Yorker broadcast the news , even our ( metro New York ) area. They try to convey that were less educated than the rest of the nation if we talk like a New Yorker.
I remember when I was in grade school and asked my teacher what is the correct pronunciation Water or Wata ( to roll the er or affix and A at the end in place of the ”Er”) both are correct she replied. New Yorkers don’t loose your N.Y. accent . And if you go away-to college , get an education but keep the New Yorkese
