Southern American English dialects can also be found in extreme southern parts of Missouri, Maryland, Delaware, and Illinois.
Southern dialects originated in large part from a mix of immigrants from the British Isles, who moved to the American South in the 17th and 18th centuries, and the creole or post-creole speech of African slaves.
