I only have a accent on some words. I was raised in New York until I was five, and some of it stayed with me. Especially when I say the words "turn" or "sl*t" I pronounce them "tourn" (e.g. tourn the doorknob) and the u in sl*t gets really weird like "sl-uuuh-t". Imagine a New Yorker saying sl*t... but then there's a weird mix of that and this accent that it seems only I have. You have to hear it to know what I'm talking about.

I'm from Illinois and around here, most of us, generally don't have an accent at all really. But for whatever reason, I talk with a bit of a redneck twang with a bit of the "ghetto" is what I'm told....Ha! I say sodie not soda, or soda pop....I say howdy and ya'll....I use a warshcloth, not awash cloth....even my closest friends look at me weird sometimes because of how I say something and I'll have absolutely NO idea how or where I picked it up from...

I love to listen to different accents and dialects. Each one is so different...

I don't think I have much an accent, unless Canadian counts lol?
Well, expect once in New York, I was talking to this cash register and she asked me if I was from Canada because I seem to talk like it. Oh but I say "hello" like I'm British for whatever reason, haha I can't help it.

I usually think others have an accent but I do. I sound like a Floridan and I say Florida differently. I say it like "Floor-a-duh" and "Flarida" like my parents. I also enunciate a lot and sound clear. I think its a have cause I kinda want to be a voice actor.

I am Canadian, so I have a Canadian accent. I really wish I could hear what it sounds like!
My Oma has a german accent and it is so strong I can barely understand her, and my mom sort of gets a german accent when she speaks german.

^ I'm from the south of England too and I never think I have an accent, but there are some down here; Cornish, Bristol-ish(whatever that is called) . . . etc. The only time I ever notice an English accent is if that person is on a american show and then it sounds weird to me :D

I talk with a strong southern accent, because I've lived in Georgia my whole life. I do NOT have a country accent. I'm not a hillbilly that sounds stupid all the time.
