    Your Accents

    Ok this is a pretty poor excuse for a thread but Ive woundered what everyone sounds like as you cant really tell through text. Just a lil retarded fun for everyone.

    Im English, Or british to make it easier. my accent is quite varied, sometimes its incredibly generic and has no hints of slang at all, and then other times I have a northen accent. I dont even come from up north
    I hate the way in films english people have that really dodgey posh accent, like that dork from love actually whatever his name is and OMG vinnie jones from xmen 3 as juggernaut what the fuck is wrong with him!!

    IM THE JAGGERNAUT BITCH!!!!

    Ive got a real thick fairfeild county/upper northeastern accent. This means I dont pronounce hard consonants at all (unless its at the beginning of a sentance), dont pronounce some parts of words, and all my words are blended into one mumbley-jumbly sound.
    ftw!

    I'm from Texas, do I really have to say anything else? Honestly I don't think my southern accent is too harsh, but there are particular phrases that come out from time to time. For example, I was with some friends from the northwest and they just about died laughing when I told them I was "fixin' to" take a shower...

    American. It's a funny thing. I've always just associated with my Kiwi friends when I speak English, but somehow I never picked up their accent.

    I sound like Boromir from fellowship of the ring. If you look on Staz Johnsons website too. In his videos, thats my accent too.

    I apparently sound a bit like Martin Clunes (men behaving badly not that Doc Martin toss) no idea, It's a mix of SE London and Buxton/South Manchester.

    More London/Cockerknee if I'm stressed or shocked

    I beat my native Buffalo accent (mid-western sorta Chicago sounding) with years of musical theater training...

    ..yeah.. you heard me.. musical theater!

    "Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed, The world in arms is not a way of life at all, in any true sense. Under the cloud of threatening war, it is humanity hanging from an iron cross."

    ...I have a sketchbook?

    Standard Central Scotland here. If you've seen "Trainspotting" that's fairly close.

    I lived in Australia all my life but many people think that I'm either from canada or america. I find it rather cool.

    When speaking french I have a relatively generic non-montrealer quebecer accent, some people think I'm from Quebec city tho, but I never lived anywhere near that place. When speaking english, I have a quite thick french/quebecer accent. It's very different from the french from France accent.

    I've found it interesting that in the U.S., no matter where you go, from Maine ("Can't get theh from heah") to San Diego ("dude, you, like, just, totally ate that bug!") the news personalities all sound the same. Very few will give any indication of their place of origin.

    I have that accent.

    in singapore, news anchors speak with american and british accents, depending on what kind of news they're reporting. singaporean accents are a strict no-no, you don't want those damn angmohs to think we actually have our own culture.

    anyway most singaporeans speak like this. this is slightly exaggerated, but that's the gist of it. this is slightly less exaggerated.

    Sometimes my southern (usa) accent gets really bad. Up north I know when some people hear me they see me as a dumb redneck, but working in a factory in the south the rednecks see me as a trying to be a "gentleman". Can't win at sounding normal.

    I can't hear my own accent, but I'm an American who's lived mainly in PA all my life. I think that I somehow picked up traces of Canadian (probably from movies. Michael J. Fox maybe? watched Back to the Future about a billion times as a kid) on words like "soory" instead of sory. I don't generally have the Philly accent, and definately not the South Philly (which I'm currently surrounded with). I think it's general north-eastern US with lots of odd bits picked up from movies.

    And I want to also mention AmishCommy's accent, because it's an interesting one to me. As I understand, the boy is Russian, though I don't hear any kind of obvious foreign accent. What's strange though, is I went to school with a guy who came to the US at about the same age that Arkady did, and the two sound identical. It's weird as hell, I wouldn't be able to tell them apart on the phone. It's this weird Russian non-accent, freaky.
