emPHAsis on the wrong sylLAble

Ever notice how different a word can sound when you put the emphasis on a different syllable? I have been noticing this a lot. It makes me snicker inside sometimes. It's so strange to me that we are all Americans of the United States, yet we all sound so differently. How did this happen? Why do northerners talk so fast? Or why do some Southerners have a draw? Why is it that some words to some have one syllable, and to others have 2?
