Do you have an accent?
Posted 12/17/14
Of course I have an accent. It's called "I-speak-like-an-American".

Nobody seems to know what kind of accent I have. Some people say I sound like a black Frenchman, others say it sounds kinda Asian. Kind of odd, considering that I had a stereotypical American accent growing up.

My accent is the absence of an accent. Unless I am actively modulating my voice, I tend to be monotoned, and rather robotic. I had to do speech therapy when I was younger to get -er, -ir, and -ur sounds to come out right. My accent and vernacular are largely out of place in West Tennessee, where I live.

Everyone has an accent.

Having said that my accent is a mixed accent, part Londoner part Caribbean. Some people can work out where I grew up but most get confused. After all these years the Caribbean side seems to be diminishing . What's funny is that to people in the Caribbean I don't sound like I'm from there. They consider me British.

I am sick right now, so I sound strained and bleh.

You're contracting yourself. Everyone has an accent. You have an accent, which you've identified because your accent is out of place in TN. If you visited England, or India, you'd still have an accent.

Southerners believe northerners have northern accents. Vise versa.

If you hear someone from a different part of the world talking and you think they sound different then you automatically think... ACCENT. They think the same of you....


This is a truth fact.

I'm a former Upstate NYer who currently lives in the Baltimore, MD area so have begun to take in some of their accent. Not to the point where I say "warsh" for "wash" yet...hopefully that doesn't happen.

I tend to have a few different accents, I occasionally have a very slight southern accent, but most of the time I am told I sound like I'm from Canada, but if I get really worked up about something I will slip into a British accent, I'm not really sure why and I don't even notice I've done it until I've been doing it for a while. Although, once I had a customer insist that I am from Sweden because I sounded like it apparently.

I honestly wish I didn't! Coming from Ukraine, even at a young age, to Canada has still left me with a somewhat thick accent. I always get made fun of for it, it's annoying as all heck.

I'm from Northern England and a lot of my American friends found my accent very bizarre cos a lot of them assume that there's only one accent in England... but there are literally hundreds. You can travel ten miles and get a different accent here. And mine is the Lancashire accent, which is the most flat, boyish, old-fashioned, common and unintelligent sounding English accent you can have! The rest of England hates it and I get stick for it on a VERY regular basis! But I DO'NT CARE! Wanna hear the abomination? Check out one of my vlogs here!
