Where Am I From

I have some weird kind of accent that no one can put their finger on. The sad thing is, I have no idea where I got the accent from. Some say it's from me going over and living in Italy for a while, but it sounds nothing like an accent that an Italian would have. Others have said it sounds British, but I think they say that because it sounds so different and weird. I don't even notice it though, and sometimes I say things really weird-like. I need to find a linguist or somone who can tell me what's up with the way I talk.

Hey that's like what I have! minus the italian part. Supposedly I speak with a Brit accent, but I've only been to england for a couple weeks at a time, and it started way before that. I think it's the way we say things. I've heard it's because I'm putting the emphasis at the end of the sentence. You should ask around and try to figure out what it is that makes you sound foriegn. Emphasis, or certain sayings... It kind of narrows it down, even if you don't notice you're doing it yourself.

Well, if people think your accent is British, and you're not from the U.K., perhaps they make the mistake because you could use proper grammer and show a grip on the language. For the Italian part, unfortunately I don't know where that confusion would spring from.
