    I lived in Mexico for a while

    and got use to speaking Spanish. After I moved and came back, I kind of had this slight accent. I have this Spanish type accent.

    My father was born and raised in Scotland,

    but I only lived there until I was three years old. Soon after my third birthday my mother died, and my father and I moved to New York to be with his brother. I've lived in New York for fourteen years, but people still say I have my father's accent. I can't hear it at all...

    "Say it again, say it again,

    " is what they tell me. So I say it, and they start laughing. I'm a born entertainer, I guess.

    I have a southern country boy accent.

    Although I don't hear it in my own conversation, people especially women tell me my southern drawl is heavy, and deep south (whatever that means). I've been told by countless women that my accent makes them yearn to be with me. However, I find it very interesting that no matter...

    I have a German accent.

    You can hear it if you listen carefully because some words I say are quite rough. Though, I speak English correctly and friends say I do speak very well.

    Had two guys say they would marry me just

    for my accent alone this weekend and then my new doctor told me not to stop talking! He said he could listen to me talk all day, and then asked me how old I was..... His exact words " Awe, your just a baby, with a lovely accent." -_-

    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 never saw myself as having any particular

    accent until I attended school down South (Georgia) and was told I did, lol. But I'm a San Franciscan, born and raised, and this IS my accent (although I have a lower voice).

    I was born in the U.S.

    but have Caribbean heritage. I have also lived in both countries and have an American accent with a subtle mix of Trinidadian undertones. I can also flip back and forth with each accent at will.

    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 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?
