Dialect questions for native English speakers

I have a few dialect questions for native speakers of English, partly because I'm considering working with different dialects for a paper and partly because I'm idly curious.

1. What dialect do you speak and/or what region/country are you from?

2. Does your dialect have negative concord (i.e. didn't do nothing to nobody working out to didn't do anything to anybody, and so on)?

3. Does it have aspectual markers (e.g. habitual be in African-American Vernacular English)?

4. What would you consider the most noticeable or striking features of your dialect (whether phonological, lexical, or grammatical)?

Of course, if you speak more than one, I'd love to know the answers for all of them.

Thanks in advance!
