Does Faking An Accent Make a person fake or pretentious?
Posted 11/12/16
I'm thinking about faking a British accent 24/7 if I were to move to a new location. Would that perhaps make me pretentious or fake?

Depends on the listener.
Maybe he will see it as it or maybe not.

You could just say you were fucking around
Just say it in a joking manner, then again people will think of you as a jokester which depends if you like people thinking about you that way

Depends on the accent and how well it's faked.

Imo, it would appear just a bit pretentious, if the accent is done badly.

Like, if you studied Dick Van Dyke in "Mary Poppins", I would.....advise against it.

I did that in sixth grade and tried to convince people I was from the UK. I convinced many but made a few enemies that weren't convinced. Then it all kinda blew over and I stopped talking like that.

Out of curiosity...why a British accent??? And i dont think its a good idea to be faking your accent or anything else about yourself for that matter. You should just be you.

Let's just say right now, based on current examples, your attempt to fake ANYTHING would meet with diminishing success.

No I think that's just being rude or at least that's what I was told.
