I am not Sicilian, but when I lived in Italy I lived in Erice, Sicilia(region of Trapani). This is where I learned to speak Italian (and some dialetto). Italians say I speak with a Sicilian accent! That would be like an Italian learing english in Georgia and speaking with a southern draaawl.:)

I have noticed that the folks who posted here and have lived in many places or with many cultures are all very thankful of that. New York as in Manhattan and Brooklyn was a bit like that as is Philadelphia. And I really enjoy the diversity as does my wife and all seven children. I was therefore shocked, when I started to work in Virginia near the nations capital, to hear the natives complain about having "foreigners" living in the community. "No body roun here talks english no more" they'd moan. It is even worse out here in rural Virginia as you might guess. Our only Doctor of Medicine here in Berryville is Egyptian. My neighbor recently asked if I had been to him. I said yes and she asked is he really some kind of "foreigner". Yup I said he is Egyptian and he looks just like Peter Lorrie. Oh she sighed. So being a nasty person, I told her " either get undressed in front of an Egyptian or go home and die from your ailment.

I miss the many different faces and foods and sounds of cosmopolitan cities. It is a great world, smile, open your arms and embrace it. Or go home and die from your ailment I guess.

Aren't you a foreigner if you're anything but American Indian? And they have good reason not to trust "foreigners". :D

Speaking of American Indians here is my breakdown.

Dads Father - Blue eyed French Man
Dads Mother - American Indian

Moms Father - Hawaiian/Chinese
Moms Mother - Filipino

This makes me 100% Mutt!

So I took it a step further and married an Ecuadorian. Now when we fill out papers on our children’s Nationality I just crack up and pick one.

Since we are talkin about dialect now how about i show you what i know.
(Sicilian)= Io sugnu ri sangu Sicilianu e consideru tutti gli Italiani comu frati e soru.
(Neopolitan)= Io puro tengo u sangue Napulitane. "Nee vuaglio acca nesciuno e fesso".
(Roman)= Parlanno dei vecchi quatrini e cioe' dee vecchie lire che mo nun vargono piu. Me rimasta la nostargia de ricorda', mezza piotta- na piotta-mezzo sacco e un sacco.
(Barese)= Shamanenne senun she namma she, no shenne shamme.

You asked what dialect it was. It is Perugino, from Perugia in central Italy, Umbria.
