I think using the "lingo" of an accent is good in the beginning of an article for effect. However, as the article goes on, it becomes more difficult to read it repeatedly.

I've struggled with this topic in a broken English character I had once. Do you think it's okay for us to use the "lingo" in the beginning and then revert back to standard English maybe throwing a lingo-ism in here and there? Or would it confuse the reader altogether?

Fun and creative :) I agree with Mid about the lingo - keep it!
For me this worked because I could "hear" my daughter who is an excellent impressionist/colloquialist. It was a serious subject and I commend your writing skill. (But that 'voice'in my ears kept making me laugh. :)"

I have no idea how you pulled this off without a hitch. Incredible!

Everybody to their own taste, right? The lingo turned me off...but the message was good.
I LOVE this. Have you been in my neck of the woods lately, or somethin'?
I liked the voice and the message.
BTW, I do know what a jackelope is. ;0)
