Really? I've never seen that, though I don't doubt you. But then, with
so many dialects of English, it is possible that some are not mutually
understandable. It happens in Italian, for example. English is no
exception. I know Southern but once, in Mississippi, I absolutely
could not understand a guy. This was a different enough dialect of
Southern. Once you get away from the written word (a pale image of
language), you're on your own!
