    Did anyone else use to think

    that their voice was like the absence of an accent when in all reality, to someone else you have a distinct sound in your words. Everyone has an accent!:D

    I have a Spanish accent,

    it really bothers me. I used to speak perfect English but started speaking lots of Spanish after high school and now I have the thickest Spanish accent

    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

    Australian

    Ya well I'm Australian so I have an Australian accent. People I meet from different countries are always telling me Aussie accents are hot but I think they sound stupid. Like if you hear an Aussie actor in an American film it just sounds so wrong. I guess we probably don't sound...

    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.

    Just A Thought

    I'm just curious as to how this is even a group... Doesn't everyone have an accent? I live in the northwest of America, and to myself I don't have an accent but to someone from say the UK, Australia, Ireland, etc. I have an accent. In America there are southern accents and east...

    It's not even a cool one!

    My dad has a country accent. I have like a New Jersey accent; NOT like the people from Jersey Shore. When I say words with the short a sound, it comes out sounding like a long a. Like when I say the word 'water'. Don't ask! 😫

    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.

    My accent has gotten me into trouble more

    than once. Not because people cant understand me but because people around here love to listen to me talk. It has a tendency to bring out the 'green eyed jealousy monster' in my spouse!!!! Well... the accent, plus being a bit of a flirt! LOL

    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?

    Well I don't really but I know what it is like

    to have one, I used to have one till I mastered how to talk English. But it's sexy to have an accent makes you stand more IMO

    Really, I don't have an accent all the time.

    Every now and again, though I am an AMERICAN, I can muster up a British or Irish accent, and get all the ladies, because from what I hear from my female friends, they love those two accents the most.
