Do ye have an accent?
« on: September 08, 2011, 10:48:01 PM »
Anyone have an accent they're aware of?

Me accent is a catastrophic combination of Australian, British, American and South African. It's revolting.

American accent I suppose? Nothing particularly regional.

As far as I'm concerned, anything that isn't "Queen's English" is accented IMO.

I've actually found I speak differently depending on whom I'm talking to. But usually a pretty normal somewhat southern American accent. Although certain words I speak in a 'Canadian' or 'British' accent (I use quotes because it has less to do with the region and more with the pronunciation itself)



And I don't remember where you're from Xpike but yeah, you do have an accent.

Despite being mashed between New York and Boston, my influence from their stereotypical accents is minimal. I guess I speak like a typical Northerner, which, to me, is no accent at all.

I've actually found I speak differently depending on whom I'm talking to.
I change how I speak too: I'm easily influenced by other peoples' idiosyncrasies and accents - my parents can tell who I've been hanging out with when I come home as a result (i.e. if I'm talking fast, I was with X, if I'm using lots of slang, I was with Y). I can even pick it up from the TV, and end up talking like my favourite character in a certain show or whatever.

Anyway, my natural accent is a "Toronto" accent. So your average nondescript North American accent, but with really fast speech and lazy pronunciations of certain words (the archetypical one being "Terano" instead of "Tor-on-to"; most non-Torontonians say we exaggerate it all the way to "tarrana", but that's a lie: we don't have very much twang in our voices, which is one of the few ways we can be told apart from certain chunks of the U.S.). We slur words together a lot too ("dyou", "whadja"), but I think a lot of places do that.

Alright, so Groden, Stooben and Smiley say I have a thick General Australian accent, which they described as awesome, badass and cute, respectively.

So I'm not a phony as everyone in real life tells me, I suppose?

There'll be other chances in the future. Although me parents lurk a bit and like to tease me, so I may not speak as often as anyone else.

Ye kind of do, actually. But I'm no good with American accents, so not sure which regional one ye have.

YES, it's soo cute~ >w<
I still don't know how... I wish me accent was thicker, in all honesty (I can't even hear it). Neu has the best accent, in my opinion.

Stooben has a cute laugh btw~ :3
Not when he's laughing because he's pinned me head to the wall with an arrow!

I spent most of my life in Massachusetts so I guess I gained a northern accent. I'm not even American X:

It just is DP~! :3 Your accent is thick. D:<

I can't hear my accent either.

He's pretty good with dem things.

It's not thick at all.
That's what she said.
