What if you wrote the way you talk?

Billy Bob does a great job of acting as Sling Blade in the movie of the same name, and often talks with a peculiar accent and is very much like an old mountain man who never sees anyone down in the town and the boy says, "I like the way you talk." and he replied, "I like the way you talk." This set the idea in my head about what if ... What if when we typed our discussions or chats on social media in a way that looked just like the sound of what we would be sayin if we was talkin for real? I talk about the same as I type. But there are times I think it would be interesting to see how a writer would type or text a message or a discussion in a forum using spellings that changed the phonics of the words as if they was talkin for real. I suppose it wood be kinda funny to see dont ya agree? he he he. Check out this funny video from YouTube you will like it a lot:

@fishtiger58 Yes, and because at age 4 I had a southern accent and was taken to a speech therapist who was a former first grade elementary school teacher, who tried to take the southern accent out of me so I could talk the way they all talk up north in Indiana. Now I am in Dallas with a northern accent. But I have learned by recording my voice many ways to alter the phonics or the way I talk to the point I could do voice overs for all kinds of cartoons if I wanted. I can pretend to have a British accent or a deep southern Georgian accent. It's fun to do so that is one of my talents.
