    Wrong, the medical field is changing fast thanks to Obamacare. While some experienced nurses can still find jobs...it's not the industry it once was. It's nearly impossible to find a job if you are anything other than a nurse. I've been in the field for more than 20 years and I have never seen it this bad.

    Only joking southern-born folks in here!
    I lived in Texas for four wonderful years, and discovered that there are certain similarities between NooYawkese and Texan. For example, the plural for "you" in Texas is "Y'all", while in New York, it's "Youse".

    We know from the phonetic writings in less than standardized English of the 17th century that Southern English is quite close to Elizabethan in usage and pronunciation. Even a great many of the idioms and grammatical peculiarities have survived into our own time in isolated subcultures like Smith Island and Tangier Island, where the accent is almost identical to similar places in England.

    New Yorkese, on the other hand, is an amalgam of the immigrant groups which generated the dialect and we see a remarkably similar dialect spoken in a similarly composed immigrant subculture of New Orleans. It is a 19th century concoction.

    I was told flat out by my Aussie counterparts last year that THEY speak the "Queens English"...WE speak "American".

    So, what you are saying is that Southern English remains as inbred as southern families, while New York English has benefited from exposure to other cultures?
