No Accent? Mon, Jan 15, 2007

I think most of the people I talk with fall in this category, but would be interesting to see if it might pick up some of the Minnesota accent in people? Didn’t really see what might cause that score to jump. > > <table style=“width: 320px; border: 1px solid gray; font: normal 12px arial, verdana, sans-serif; background-color: white;”> > > :
