Mensagem:  Dear Ricardo, Do you know any book or software that you can recommend to me that break down the insouts of southern accent (draw)? As you know, my original address in the U.S. is in Rhode Island- way up north. However, for the time being, I'm staying in Houston, Texas, and I will be staying here for a little while. Locals around here sound totally different than the folks up north. In fact, I'm getting extra inquiries as to my origin. There are two types of inquires. The first are the ones whose ears only ear my somewhat northern draw (Accent). The latter ones are those whose ears, I would have to say, are a bit more sharp, they actually here both of my accents- my somewhat New England draw (accent) and my very slight foreign accent. However, I wish to lessen these inquiries. I thought that by checking a book or software about the southern accent would be helpful. So, if you have a suggestion, please let me know. I would appreciate it -Miguel Vieira
