Pfft, my Californian accent is mellow in comparison to the rest of the states population lol

We spell it Aluminum not Aluminium, so obviously we are programmed to pronounce it differently. So I assumed since the OP was British that she was spelling it the European way.

I wonder how I sounded like. Probably mixed with Filipino-American accent.
My accent shifts depending on the person whom I'm speaking to. But Australian, British, Danish and other-ish? I WISH!

I have a stereotypical "posh" English accent I think and since I constantly get told that by the Welshies I assume it must be correct.

I have a monotone Californian accent.

But the ones I like the most are British (sorry I'm not experienced enough to give a regional dialect) and Australian; I'll hang out with someone with either of those accents any day. Heck, me and my Australian guildmates used to long distance call for hours before the invention of vent. I was lucky enough to have a relative that worked for a phone company that could get phone cards that would result in about 3 cents a minute ><

I know how to pronounce it, but I don't go around saying "Oh, I really need some Al-you-men-e-um foil" when I'm thinking of supplies I need to buy. It was originally published as Aluminum...it was the British who decided it wasn't "Classical" sounding enough for them and added the "ium" so it would fit their tastes.

I have a slight welsh borders accent, but due to various reasons it really phases in between how rural I'm soundin'
If I'm thinking about how I speak it comes out more toned down but I've got a certain burr
Varies between http://vocaroo.com/i/s1QqWSzroAiI and
http://vocaroo.com/i/s04aUn3WRHQJ
The standard accent in my county is even weirder.

Apologies to the person who just sat through any of that
