    Damn New Yorkers

    My dads side of the family is nothing but Italians. Before they came here they lived in New York. Now, I've never been to New York, but because my dad grew up there he had an accent and some where down the line him teaching me how to talk gave me a New York accent. I'm the only...

    I do. Then it depends on what language we're

    talking about. In French. yeah I guess I do. Mostly not now anymore, but I've had several accents along the years. Esp. little, I was like a sponge. Until I was 14 or so, I guess it's rather normal to. I had a very southern accent, from 7 to 12. And the vocabulary that went...

    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?

    I can switch easily from an American accent,

    to a Peruvian/ Spanish accent (Ironic since my spanish is hopeless) and to a classic Dubai Arab-ish one.. and with my looks (which are apparently "exotic") I get to fool alot of people... It's too much fun sonetimes.

    as I am Latino. I don't hear myself when I speak because I don't believe I have one. I still don't believe I do. Even though I'm Mexican.

    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 never left the desert.

    I was born a desert rat and destined to be one, but the mother always ragged on me about my "accent". The father was born and raised in Jersey and I guess assumed it would be hilarious to give this desert rat a jersey accent.
