    I live in a small town in New York

    and some how I have a southern accent. Whenever I talk to someone new they always ask me what southern state I'm from and they're shocked when I tell them where I'm from.

    Southern girl! I used to try to hide it-- not

    sure why. Now I've realized that it's my voice and I can't change it. So, honestly, I have a thick country accent.

    I have an Estuary English accent,

    which is widely spoken across South East England. I'm not posh, but I'm not cockney either. I'm somewhere between the two.

    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 have an American accent.

    I don't really know what type of American accent. But it's not really that exciting. People like more exotic accents.

    When I first moved from Scandinavia I tried my

    person and that I have an accent which makes it weird because I am full blooded Mexican and I don't have a Mexican accent at all.

    I can pull off about 10-12 accents

    and I picked them up mostly when I was a kid from tv shows and English class, so when it comes to my original one I'm kind of accent-less(as a specific). Sometimes if I read a text I can read it in all of the variations and end up sounding like 10 people from different parts...

    well, at least I'm told I am.

    I'm Australian and I travel quite a bit, and when I'm overseas I'm always told that I have an Australian accent, but I've never really noticed myself having an overly distinguishable voice

    when I speak English,

    I have a really strong portuguese accent and it bothers me a lot. I try but I can't hide it very well so I get all shy when I have to talk to some of my friends in English. I end up not speaking at all bc having a strong accent annoys me so I get all confused and then I don't...

    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.

    It's kinda funny really.

    I'm an American living in Australia. So I have an accent here but bc I've been here so long when I talk to my family or go back home they also think I have an accent. It's like I'm foreign no matter what. Also my accent gets mistaken for Irish a lot. Don't know if the combo of...

    I'm Scottish. And I have a very thick

    Glaswegian accent ......yet when I hear a Scottish accent I cringe. It's weird, because when I travel folk always say " wow. That's an awesome accent " That's when I start to question folks ears . I'm like "really. Yer aw mad ! ". To which they reply excitedly.."Again...

    I live in the southeastern United States,

    and I have a southern accent. When I'm angry or talking fast, my accent thickens. My wife is from Michigan, and she loves the way I talk.
