A dialect spoken by a large number of people over 40 in Ohio, especially in the less urban areas.

Examples:

"Wash" is pronounced "warsh" or "worsh"

The "a" in words like "national" and "fashion" turns to "nay-tional" and "fay-shion"

Every day of the week ends in "-dee" like "Tuesdee" or "Fridee"

"I said" turns into "I says" (pronounced "I sez")

"Remote" turns into "channel changer" (some young people also say it this way)
(Old person with Ohio accent): So I says on Tuesdee, don't forget to throw away your traysh and warsh your hands.
