Possibly the most neutral way of speaking EVER. I live in the south, but my parents have foreign accents, but I'm in love with northern[America] and European ways of speaking, so I study it. Mix all of that into together and you get a weird blended accent that comes out kind of neutral. lol

I've heard that I have an accent, but I think it's one of my own. I grew up in an English-speaking home but my grandparents spoke to us in Spanish. I was born in Rhode Island and the people around us spoke Spanish, Portuguese, Polish, English. My family moved to Florida when I was 3, so I may have a New England accent that slips up sometimes but Florida is so different from everywhere else, so who knows what I sound like!

I have recently started saying "Gwod" and "Gwosh" and I'm not trying to. Its kinda strange. But sometimes I have a southern accent (I live in Texas) but sometimes I have sort of a British accent. Idk. Its so funny though.

I'm from Texas and I have one of the strongest Texas accents I think I've ever heard. I think ONE thing I don't say typical of many southerner is "warsh" I really don't throw in "r"s where they don't belong. I don't drop them where they should be like i'm told yankees (if you'll forgive the term) do
i say car not cah
although i comes out a bit more like aih
and ma'am is mayum
and hello often sounds alot like "howdy" or "mornin'"

Wowserz! All you guys have such interesting ways of speaking while mine is just boring. I live in the "not-north" area of the United States and I don't even have the accent to prove it. A disappointment to all southern people, I've been called. It's ok though because life goes on. Since I lived up north in the most important years of my life, I do say "tuwalk" for talk, but it's not as strong as you would imagine. Other little things like that, but nothing major. Mostly, I just imitate others in a pathetic attempt to emphaize my accent. Well, whatever works for me!

I'm from Massachusetts, which is in New England, but I don't have the Boston accent, so yeah. It's normal?

Uh. . . I talk like a Michigander.
Michiganders say pop instead of soda generally.
Other than that, I talk normal I guess.
