The Disappearing American Dialect of North Carolina

"Hoi Toider," aka Ocracoke Brogue, is a dialect of American English spoken only on remote islands in North Carolina's Outer Banks. The unique accent and vocabulary developed over hundreds of years as a result of the area's isolation. Visitors often mistake the accent as foreign, but with origins dating back to the 1600s, Ocracoke Brogue is about American as it gets.
