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.

Location is under the username. People tell me that I have an Southern accent, but I don't think I do. When I hear recordings of myself, I think I sound like a nasal boy because of my allergies. I want to some more feminine, but nothing I can do for now.

You be the judge


I don't know (I don't think) if I have an accent. I've moved around quite a bit growing up. When I was little and spoke Spanglish I probably did, but I've forgotten it all a very long time ago. I think I have a plain Northern American accent now, although I can do a strong Southern accent on demand from living so long in the South. People have told me that they like my parent's strong Spanish accent....I'm like, "What accent?"

Anyway, much to my annoyance & amusement, when I answer the phone I frequently get asked, "May I speak to your mommy?" or "May I speak to to the lady of the house?" Usually, I correct them and tell them that I'm an adult/the lady of the house, but if it's a solicitor I tell them my mommy's not home and ask them if they want to talk to the babysitter. (which they never do) I've heard my phone-recorded voice, I do sound like a sweet little girl, which is odd because face to face my voice is rather deep compared to other females. My voice is very versatile, I can make my voice low enough to sound like a man. I do that sometimes to play phone pranks on family.

My accent is a mix of Estuary with a hint of Yorkshire that still lingers- I moved from the Sheffield area to London when I was younger. I refuse to record myself speaking, because I'm another on the list of people who sound like a child in recordings.

ETA: And I'm so fascinated when American accents seem to cover huge areas, while here in the UK there are towns that will have multiple accents associated with them.

It is really interesting, I mean if you look at a county such as Yorkshire, it's tiny comparing to an average state in America (geographical size and population), yet there's about so many different Yorkshire dialect floating about whilst almost everyone in the same American state would have the same dialect.
