    Lock if this is a duplicate. :cute:

    Do you have an accent?

    Of course, the people on Mibba that are from Europe/the U.K./Australia/New Zealand/some other country have accents.

    I have a New England/Connecticut-ish accent. I don't know. :tehe: I drop G's in ing and stuff like that, sometimes when I talk I sound like I'm on drugs. I talk slow... And... Yeah.

    Do you have an accent pertaining to the part of the country you're from?

    Technically, everyone has an accent. I have a New England accent, so I talk fast and sometimes drop t's and d's.

    Like, I say "Kin' of" instead of "kind of", and "S'okay" instead of "It's okay".

    Well..I don't have an accent in the state I live in..I have an accent to anyone who doesn't talk in the way I do. I sometimes slip into accents, though. Such as..I spend a week in Canada and gain a Canadian accent...sometimes I slip into a Boston accent (I've never met anyone and have heard few with a Boston accent), sometimes people wonder why I'm speaking in a British accent..though I don't know anyone with a British accent and I've never been to Britain..and..I don't even notice I'm talking in such a way..then..my step-family comes in a for a visit and after spending a few hours with them I begin talking ina southern accent. Even being around people with speech impediments..I gain one myself, temporarily. My mother blames this happening on watching too much television.

    I'm from NE too. I used to have a Boston accent so I couldn't say my r's or t's. In 2nd grade, they made me go to speech classes at school so now I say my r's normally.

    I'm Cornish, and some of the things I come out with makes that really obvious. :tehe: I pick up other peoples accents extremely easily though; I watch a lot of American tv, so my accent is often tinged American.

    Well, I'm from England, but some of the Chinese girls at my school told me my accent is different from the other English girls... which I thought was a little weird, since I always thought my accent was normal. They couldn't pin-point it, so I don't really think I have one... I'm totally English, so I don't really know why they thought I had an accent Sad

    Well, I don't have an accent that I was born in, but I can talk in different accents, such as the British accent, or Boston accent, or any of that sort. It's quite funny.

    I have absolutely no accent. Neutral, as my boyfriend puts it...which is very odd, because everybody in Portarlington, where I live, has an accent: you either have a bogger accent (drop your 'g's on the end of ings, pronounce 'th's as t...for example, "Elizabeth's the one doing that!" would be "Elizabet's de one doin' dat!") or a Dublin accent (that's a very funny video, the second person speaking is a Dubliner and the third is someone Chinese).

    By rights, I should have a Dublin accent, because I was born and raised in Dublin, but I just...don't have an accent. For example, I've performed in plays in New York, and everybody was surprised that I wasn't from there when I said it. When I went to stay with my friend's Dad in Brisbane, Australia, everybody was surprised I was Irish.

    I do an awesome French accent, though...only when I'm speaking French, though. I have a great English accent too...I can pull off a bogger and a west Irish accent too, but I only use them when I'm in Irish plays.

    I have a mild North Mayo accent with a fair amount of North London.

    It's odd , but blends together nicely with English. When I speak Irish it sounds weird though.

    English. :D

    I used to speak very properly almost have a posh... no, not posh, just proper accent. But I noticed because everyone around me noticed, and I hated it, so throughout my whole life fought it off vehemently. And now i'm just kind of normalish. :tehe:

    I don't really have an accent in particular. Or at least, a Filipino accent. And I know this since my mom once told a friend of hers that I speak fluently in Bicolano and Tagalog without an accent. =P

    I have a slight English farmer girl accent. And by slight, I mean people tell me I sound like Danny off Hot Fuzz, just a girl.
    It's really not good. I didn't notice until I was told.

    Go Gloucestershire! :shifty

    I'm wierd because I don't have a set accent. I vary from a very upper class english accent, to a northern english accent (where I live) and (my home country) an Irish accent, wierd thing is I was born in Tipperary but speak with a rough North Dublin accent!

    I think this is a product of being around lots of people from lots of places. My cousins are from London and when they come down they are surprised I don't speak with a really northern accent (yorkshire or liverpool) and ,surprisingly, I can actually say the letter T! :snob

    I have an Irish accent that borders on stereotypical.

    I was born in Dublin and go back there often, so I speak with a Dublin twang. Then there's Crossmaglen, where I live now, so there's a bit of rough Northern Irish accent in there. Then when I speak Irish I have a broad Cork accent and every so often (when I'm singing especially) I go BANG! Tipperary.

    I'm strange.

    I have a southern accent. Like, Gone With The Wind esque. Most of the time I choose to play it down, but sometimes I'll break it out. Mostly for craps and giggles.

    For instance, saying "Hello there, you guys, what are you doing today?" would be "Hey there, yaaa'lll, what ah you doin' todaaay?"

    :tehe:

    I have a friend from Michigan though, and when I asked him if I talked funny, he was like, "yeah, but you talk a lot less funny then the other people down here."

    Who talk like this:

    People in Michigan have crazy wierd accents. I'm originally from California, so all of my friends think I'm the one who's talking funny.

    Sometimes I got an involuntary British accent. It just happens. But I've never set foot in England.

    One time I went to Chincoteague for a week and picked up a slight accent temporarily. I'm too easily influenced by the way others talk. :XD
