I'm a Dutch student, and I'm researching American slang. I'd like to find out the differences between the down south, east and west coast slang. Could you give me some specific differences?

That is way too open ended a question for here. A google search for Southern American English, the Philadelphia/New Jersey/New York/Boston accents, etc. Wikipedia should have a good start for you. –  Mitch Dec 3 '11 at 20:57
