Episode Summary

EDIT

Accents and language are probably the most obvious signifiers of where one hails from on the map. The use of common words, phrases and pronunciations tends to forge an identity that can cross, circumvent and undermine traditional borders. Southern accents, California slang, regional words like pop or soda or soda pop - all tend to bond a group of people with a sense of family togetherness, and clearly identify outsiders.
