Picking apart the dialect

I would like to first say that this is not meant to be a hateful blog. I am a non-native St. Louisan. I moved here back in late 2001. From day one, I noticed some strange dialect coming from some of the people hailing from St. Louis. My wife, a native herself, did not have the dialect. But, then again, I met her while she was living in Columbus, Ohio. I believe that STLans that have never lived outside of Missouri tend to have this speak more so than others.

More to come about this native dialect, including examples. I'd like to hear your comments.
