I don't have an accent, thank you very much.


If someone has a really thick southern accent I've found that it's hard to understand them.

By americans do you mean the generic white american? ... Well first of all you have to understand that to americans you are the one who has an accent. It ultimately depends on the person, Which iteration they have been more exposed to? Thats the one that will sound normal to them.

Ultimately, this thread is very one sided. What are you saying is the correct way to speak english? Is a certain accent the correct way? What im reading and what I get from your post is that the way that english must be spoken is the english way. There is no correct way to speak english, depending on the culture it will always sound a certain way specially if english is your second language.

there are different versions of each, and not one of them is truly best.
It's all a matter of opinion.

Like the English, we have multiple accents. Some are harder to grasp than others, and some are thicker or lighter in the same region. For example, my accent is pretty clear, to the point in which other Long Islanders don't think I'm from around here (there's a little effect of a Boston accent), but out of the Island, people can still tell after a bit that I am a native Islander. I can follow a sophisticated southern or midwestern accent, but a thick one can easily leave me lost.

And yes, we speak English. It's just "American" English. We pronounce certain things differently, and we have some savages that butcher the language (most people where I like say "axe" instead of "ask", and it drives me nuts). Because of that butchering, I tend to like English accents more (at least the syllables are in order), but I like my accent and my boyfriend's (which is a bit similar), Boston accents and the lighter southern accents.
