I recently posted on English dialects, and have now come across a nice map of regional American English Dialects:

Aschmann's map of regional North American English dialects (excluding African-American dialects). Click on the map to get to the main web site.

The web site has an excellent discussion of various features of North American phonetics. Based on the discussion, but lacking any acoustic analysis of my speech, I believe that I speak a Midland dialect.
