American Southern: Southern Dialects: Southern Accents: Plantation Southern: Tidewater Southern, Upper-Class, White Female.� Ann Peets was recorded in a hospital in Georgia, at age 78 in 1993.� Her family and accent are from the Mississippi Delta region.� She has a slightly diluted Tidewater or Plantation Southern dialect, shared by other families along the coastal and riverbed regions of the American South wherein rich plantation owners kept contact with British merchants during the 1700's and 1800's, dropping their "r's" along with the Southern British elite class to sound more refined.� This dialect also has elements of "ebonics" or "Gullah" sounds, as many children of plantation owners were raised by African slave nannies alongside their own children.

Georgia is a state with a Southern dialect.
