I Would Like to Know What Kind of Accent You Have

    I'm now developing a Norwegian accent,

    simply because my partner is from Norway and has been teaching me his native language. When I do speak English, the Norwegian accent likes to slip up out of nowhere- people's reactions to the sudden change is... rather amusing.

    I was raised in a small country town in Texas but my accent is different than everyone else there. Everyone said that I sound like I am from a different country. My accent changes every once in awhile. So it's hard to tell where I am from.

    Newscaster Voice/accent?

    I don't have an accent. Just what I call a "newscaster's voice". When I tell people that I'm from Jersey they don't believe me because I don't have an accent.

    I don't have a deep drawl or anything. It's more like a hint of twang. It's not obvious, but if you're paying attention you can tell I'm from the South.
