I'm from Yorkshire, England and I have a Yorkshire accent. It's been toned down a lot now after going to university and travelling (as no one outside of Yorkshire understands the Yorkshire accent ), I was bored and recorded the YouTube accent tag words.

Please share yours!

The words are:

Aunt, Roof, Route, Wash, Oil, Theater, Iron, Salmon, Caramel, Fire, Water, Sure, Data, Ruin, Crayon, New Orleans, Pecan, Both, Again, Probably, Spitting image, Alabama, Lawyer, Coupon, Mayonnaise, Syrup, Pajamas, Caught, Naturally, Aluminium, Envelope

For "Toned down a lot" It still seems pretty strong to me.

I have an "Upper south" accent, mixed with a "midland" accent. (Note: American)

Aka nothing.

I speak general American broadcast English for the most part. However I do sound vaguely Canadian sometimes having grown up in the Northwest.

I have a slightly southern accent mixed in with a Michigan accent. I was born in Alabama but my parents are from the Michigan.

Uhm it changes a bit.
It's usually just a "Rochesterian" accent, Rochester NY.
But when I'm around my semi-adopted family I get the whole Hong Kong accent going on. :c

Haha, maybe it's because you're not used to Yorkshire accents, some local people would ask me if I'm from down south or London because my accent has became more "neutral British". So upper south of the States is located around Virginia...?

Americans never fail to amuse me by pronouncing aluminium like some kind of glowey object (cos you guys pronounce it like illuminate)! No offence but it's really cute haha.

I have a slight southern accent, with the occasional "y'all" and a few other phrases I can't think of. It's mixed with a Minnesota accent so I also have the occasional "Ah geez!" "Would ya look at that?" and the "eh?". Not sure how else to describe it.
