  • I don't have an accent ;). I have an upstate New York American accent, actually. I pronounce my 'O's a little too much like 'A's.
  • i have a brittish accent, well an essex accent really and people from other places in england sometimes get it mixed up with an australian accent.but people in essex would say its an estuary accent cos @ the end of every sentence the tone goes up like everythings a question.
  • We native Californians don't have accents.
  • I have a North Western English accent. Like Liam Gallagher but posher and not as annoying.
  • I have a Canadian accent. Apparently we have one... I was told that the Ontario accent is the easiest to understand and is the clearest, but whether that is true is up for debate
  • I have a moderately Appalachian accent. It's a little like a southern US accent but different. An eagle is an "iggle". The Steelers are the "Stillers". And we say yun'z or yin'z. As in "Yun'z come check this out." We leave out some syllabuls. Although I don't always talk like that. It comes and goes.
  • I have an extreme Northwestern American accent, I tend to pronounce my Rs like Ws and vice verse. It can get quite annoying, as most people here can only understand about 1/10th of what I'm saying at any given time.
  • Its a bit of a hybrid. I grew up mostly in the East Midlands of England. Which means I say "bath" as "baff" and not "barth" and "castle" is said "cassil" the way it should be (and not "carhseel" the way all you poncy southerners would have it). I can also pronounce my "u"s properly (its "duck" not "dahhk" like in the South East, and definetly not "dook" like they say "oop north".). Because I spent a lot of time in Wales, however, I have a bit of a lilt and pronounce "ch" and "ll" properly, and some English people think I'm Welsh (although real Welsh people rarely make that mistake!). Its definetly nothing whatsoever like how Hugh Grant speaks. So there you go- my accent. Its a shame I can't record it for you!
  • It's a bit mixed up really. To an American, I'd probably just sound English... I was born in Liverpool, and most people know what Liverpudlians sound like, (think Paul McCartney, only less male; I'm a woman...) so I do have a bit of a Liverpudlian accent. When I go away to uni though my accent becomes really quite southern; I seem to subconciously adopt the same accent as the majority of the people around me! I never, ever say some of the things that a lot of northerners say, like 'cuke' instead of 'cook' or 'luke' instead of 'look'. It turns my blood cold when people talk like that! My father and brothers aren't from Liverpool, and they do talk in a Hugh Grant type way, so if you can imagine I've got a bit of that going on as well. So all in all, my accent's a bit of a mix of everywhere, but depending where I am at the time depends which bit of my accent's more prominent. I think I must have the same problem as Catherine Zeta Jones. :)
  • Mine's southwestern US, and I never thought we had any accent until I visited England and was told my speech isn't "rounded". so I guess it's flat. I have noticed we don't pronounce some letters -- we say "innernet" instead of "internet" for example. There is some Mexican idiom and speech pattern thrown in there as well, which is nice because it is so melodic.
  • my accent is canadian.
  • I'm from minnesota.Ever see the movie Fargo? It's not that far off. They pushed it some
  • Apparently I have a western canadian accent....strange I know
  • I have somewhat of an Australian accent though many people say it sounds English.
  • I have a mainstream midwestern American accent, with just a dash of Texan thrown in.
  • I have always maintained that I do not have an accent. Only people who are not from my area have accents. However, I once had a girlfriend from New York City who insisted that I have a Boston accent. She said that I sounded like Norm from the TV sitcom Cheers.
  • Mid-Western American
  • I used to have a strong Jewish/Italian accent from growing up in the Philadelphia area - kinda similar to the stereotypic New York accent in the movies. I studied phonetics and Standard American in my acting classes. Now I start picking up accents of whoever I'm around.
  • Start with a base of NZ, (kiwi) add 3 years of Sydney, and 3 years of Perth Australia, sprinkle in some English (Cockney) and 16 years of Japan plus at least an accumulative year of traveling to another 24 countries and you get my accent! I dunno what you'd call it....
  • I have a horrid "brummie" accent that i try to disguise as much as possible!
  • Canadian as I hail from the great north. I have a bit of an Israeli accent now as well, people sometimes say I sound French when speaking Hebrew.
  • It kind of a mix between the boston accent(from my parents) and the midwestern twangy accent, which is where i grew up.
  • "Cleveland Ohio News Anchor"
  • I have a messed accent, to everyone in New Zealand I have an English accent, to people in England I have a New Zealand accent. My accent belongs no where
  • Aussie !
  • I speak fluent Texican... Ya'll.
  • I'm from Georgia... I have a southern accent. It's not nearly as redneck sounding as my brothers and sisters for some reason, but every time I travel to the west coast or up north I am reminded of it constantly. When I visited California I had people pulling me around a night club going "Say this again..." or "Say that again..." It probably has something to do with the fact that I say Yes Ma'am / Yes sir and No Ma'am / No sir to just about every adult I meet in public.
  • I have a northern irish accent.... belfast
  • soft Aussie - without all the slang or jargon :)
  • None. I'm American, but Northern Va./Washington DC is curious as it is mostly inhabited by transplants rather than locals so no "accent" really exists for those of us that grew up here and ha parents from this area. I am told by numerous friends, from other parts of the United States, that I have no accent (in terms of the US anyway). So I suppose my accent is none.
  • A trace of southern American.
  • I dont know. I live in the UK in North Wales and when I meet new people abroad or something. Ive been said to sound scouse, "fake" scouse, Welsh, and "Hollyoaks" (a soap thats filmed in Chester). I never knew Chester had an accent, but apparantly Ive got it! What accent do you have psycho?
  • i had a strong southern American accent. I spent about 6 years getting rid of it becasue people thought i was stupid. I now purposefully sound like i am from Chicago.
  • I am Australian. I like the way I talk. I have been told I sound very friendly, but talk very fast. And I definitely DON'T sound British.
  • Australian ... probably not one of the most flattering accents ...
  • I have a New York aceent(whatever that is). But as I age, I have noticed that I sometimes say things with a spanish accent. Also, when I speak to someone who has an accent, I unconsciencious copy them!
  • NorthWestern American. I've been living in Texas for nearly seven years, but I still have a trace of the Northwestern accent left over from being raised in Oregon. Or at least enough of one that people here in Texas still ask me where I'm from.
  • I am from Ga. So I have a southern accent.
  • I was told last night that I have the faint vestiges of a New England accent, only noticeable when I say the phrase, "Dot dot dot". Other than that, my accent is indistinguishable.
  • I change my accent based on the need. I am from Nashville, so I can have a very southen drawl, or more cosmopolitan southern accent. I can also have no accent at all. Heres there drawl: Haee yawl, wuts gowin own? Ahm friin' chikin fer supper t'naht. Wanna hav a baht?
  • Apparently I do. I've been told that on several occasions. I sound like a hick. Doesn't bother me though, most of my family and friends sound the same. Perhaps I should say, "Why yes do, I have a charmin' southern draawwwl."
  • I grew up in JAMAICA...so i have a JAMAICAN acent...
  • I have a strong Scottish accent, I was born in Glasgow (live in London now)
  • Brooklyn accent, the ebonics dialect with a little trace of mexican accent somewhere.
  • Not to me. But I live in the south so I tend to talk slow and have a bit of a drawl.
  • I apparently have a cute one. I confused my new voice teacher this summer because he couldn't quite figure out where I'm from. Probably I just pick up little habits from the different places I've been to along with just switching between pronunciation rules on the same letter.
  • Canadian EH!
  • I have a Teesside accent, similar to a Geordie accent but not as strong and with less inflection, a bit flatter. We always get mistaken for Geordies, but if you come from the North East it's fairly easy to tell Teeside, Tyneside and Wearside apart. EDIT I found this video about the local odeon cinema. It's narrated by someone from Middlesbrough, so my accent is similar to his, only not as stong.
  • I have a lake side accent I'm told. Apparently the biggest give away is that I extend my vowels more then most people.
  • i haven't got an accent when i talk to my friends but i talk in Samogitian dialect with my parents and some of my ralatives
  • Your average Midwestern American non-accent, but when I've traveled to Texas and Wisconsin and Pennsylvania I started talking something like the people there. Years ago a stranger told me I talked like I was from "back East"; my parents grew up in Pennsylvania, but he must have meant intonations and speed more than "accent". With what relatively little French and Spanish I know, I think my accent is pretty good, and now when I read a book w/ a Hispanic cartoon character to my kids I can't help giving Spanish intonations to the English words.
  • if you think about it, everyone has an accent. people that speak like me, in the ohio, think new yorkers have an accent british ppl and so on... and they probably think we have one too.
  • yes, i have a french accent when i need to talk in english...
  • Standard American... I was a theatre major that took a lot of speech and diction to get rid of my southern New Jersey accent... It's just funny to see a flip/spic/chink with a Jewish/Italian Philly accent...
  • I sound like a typical Jersey girl. I drink "cawfee" and don't care what people think about it.
  • Heavy Maine accent. I guess it compares to Boston, but much less Irish and more British.
  • I have an English accent, thoug not what you would call the 'Queens English' its a local dialect from the East Midlands and people here say things like 'Ey up me duck' which means 'hello friend' or something along those lines.
  • Due to the stigma surrounding the southern accent I actually worked very hard in private to get rid of it and change my speech patterns. I was tired of people looking at me like I was an idiot whenever I opened my mouth. People seem to pay much more attention to how we say things than what we say. Now I am accent-neutral, I suppose I would have an American accent if I left the country but everyone I've asked says I have no accent at all, which was the point.
  • Not that i am aware of but if i were to travell yes. I would have an english canadain accent. however i have moved from my home province to another and people can always tell based on words used that are different (eg: in Sask its called a bunny hug, in Ab its a hoodie and in some places its a kangaroo jacket; or the ever popular/get a laugh out of albertans "flip a shitty")
  • Sorry, I only sound like you but a little more southern in Maryland.

  • I have the most boring speech in the world! I live in northern California - no accent - very boring. I sound like TV newscasters, and actors in movies when they aren't putting on an accent! I'm accent-less! So sad.
  • I don't really think I have an accent. I'm from Seattle. Maybe an anti-accent? My favorite one is Boston.. I'ts haat in the caa. Or New York Italian.
  • Hiya, how'r yooo.
  • I dont think I have one..=( I live in Portland Oregon.
  • Ay-up, y'alreet? Midlands/Yorkshire accent for me. Although we use some different phrases (see above) it isn't actually a particularly distinctive accent compared to other parts of the UK.

  • I have the usual Delmarva accent, but I also have certain things that I say in a Jersey accent, seeing as I have spent almost half my life in Livingston, NJ. -Most common amoung these is saying a word like "ball" pronounced as "booal." Anything else with that A sound does the same thing. -I often say "purpose" pronounced "poypuss." -Then, I will sometimes refer to the STD herpes as "oypeez."
