SAN ANTONIO -- We've heard for years that Texans have a dialect like no one else.

But according to a recent study that Texas twang may soon be a thing of the past.

A University of Texas study called The Texas English Project is trying to sort it all out.

The study says urbanization, technology and all those newcomers are contributing to the decline of the Texas twang.

But when Texans were asked whether the twang was really extinct they gave varying views.

I think Texans have lost their twang, said Andy Anderson of Fort Worth. If you really want to hear the twang you have to go out to Johnson County, Wise County.

But others disagree with Anderson.

I don't know that I have that much of a twang, but I don't think people have lost their twang, said Fort Worth resident Charla Corn.

Researchers say you are more likely to hear the Texas accent in cities like Amarillo and Lubbock.
