    I first think of Argentina.

    Puerto Rico: "yo" is pronounced like the word "yonder"

    It is not a dialect, it's more like an accent, they pronounce words different.

    A dialect deals with vocabulary.

    Even within a country you will find regionalisms, colloquialisms, dialects, etc.

    But remember, this post is about pronunciations, accents

    Nice question! Thanks

    The Y sound in ALL Spanish has more of a linguo-palatal fricative sound than in English.

    Yo is ALWAYS going to sound closer to the English JOE to English ears, than like Yo!

    I know a lady who comes from Buenos Aires. She says "yo" like Joe, but that doesn't necessarily mean that all Argentinians do.

    I guess... puerto rican, mexican, spanish, peruvian, chilean... accents. But there's a much greater difference between the south american and european spanish. So, I would say, in general, only two dialects.
