    Where Awm Frum

    In my neck of the woods, people have a hillbilly, southern Twa-y-ng. We eat Taters and Maters, Worsh Winders, and spank misbehaving kids with Fly Flaps. -"WHAT"- rhymes with Nut. See here... W-u-u-t?! ( I tole you so!). Hay is for horses... and Hello! I didn't realize...

    Southern

    although I don't hear it, anyone from outside the South here in the States notices and makes a comment...it doesn't bother me for people to make mention of it as long as they don't have negative input

    It's Just You ;]

    Okay, well, everyone has an accent, how’s that? Better? No one being summed out. =P It’s weird thought to hear what people say about my voice and what accent they think I have when I speak English. Not that I even ask – I’m just told. The first time I spoke to...

    I have a southern accent

    and when I meet someone new from a different background than my own they tend to right me off as dumb by the way that I speak. I don't know why but it really irks me. I love listening to someone speak with a different accent. Does that ever happen to you?

    I'm Singaporean (Singapore is a country in

    Asia-Pacific. Near the equator) but I'm always accused of having an American accent (since I was in elementary school) although I've never been to America.

    Yes I know everyone has one

    but I'm told I have three different accents. Including: Southern, Liverpool accent (souse accent) and my normal one (Northern American...) I dunno. I guess my voice/accent changes at random times:

    From The South. Unfortunately.

    People where i live dont think i have an accent. Everywhere else it gets noticed but they says its subtle.Ya'll is a good word. People need to realize this. It serves an important purpose. Secondly, anyone notice the lack of realism in southern accents on TV?

    My first language was Russian

    and some people say I have an accent but some people don't notice it. I think I do because some of the words I say in English are misunderstood. Lol it's not a thick accent but it's something.

    I have a Canadian accent,

    and apparently it's pretty noticeable because everyone automatically guesses I'm from up north. And no, I do not say "aboot" haha.
