    think his pattern or accent or whatever you want to call it (aside from Americanism slips) had a "south sound"  as opposed to Notenos and Tejanos or chilangos.  It sounded more like what I hear from my Guatamalan, Honduran and Salvadoran friends.  

    Well, we all hear however we're accustomed, I guess.  I've been told I sound like a south Mexico speaker rather than a north.
