    Do Y'all Have An Accent?

    In the continuing saga of getting a better picture of each other....

    What do y'all talk like? I'm a southerner by birth, but grew up in an international household. No regional accent for me. (I use y'all with my tounge in cheek)

    How 'bout the rest o' y'all? What's yo accent, folks? Hmmmm?

    Also, is your voice pitched deep or high? Have a lisp? Stutter? Speak slowly or rapidly?

    Inquiring, bored minds and such want to know!

    I speak in a series of clicks, squeaks, sqawks, and groans. As near as I can tell, my speach is completely devoid of accent.

    BEEP BOO BEEEP!

    Seriously, I have no accent at all - it's everyone ELSE that has an accent!

    Actually, i used to have an accent. As a wee young lad, I had a very strong Baw-ston accent. The elementary school I went to in NY didn't like that, so they sent me to a speech therapist to beat it out of me.

    Flipper?! You can type?

    I'm told I have a ker-azy hybrid accent, composed of upstate (where I grew up) AND downstate new york (where/with whom I went to school), some Boston (not a clue), and a smattering of Irish/Gaelic (thank you, grandpa). I'm a language *****.

    Southern born and raised ,california 10 years, settled else where. I have no accent at all. I wasn't smart enough to realize that I was supposed to have an accent. I talk fast and low, my mom keeps telling me she is listening with Southern ears and I have to repeat everything.
    Everyone else in my family have heavy southern accents......go figure...

    I don't think I have an accent, but I am third generation Texan, so what do I know. I do know my father can get three syllable out of the word "*****" when he is angry enough. Growing up I could tell how mad he was at me by counting the syllables in his cuss words!

    Outta the deeeep south, my accent is closer to a "Jimmy Carter" than a "Larry the Cable Guy".
    Hollywood would not know a real southern accent from yak call.
    It's pronounced:
    PEAcan, not paCON, just look at how it's spelled
    One does not pronounce the "L" in Dekalb county, but one does in the word "walk"
    Veye (like the woman's name) Dale (like the male name) Yuh, Vidalia Onion
    If ya'll have a layover in 'Lanta, Ponce Delenon Ave. is Ponts (pon as in pond, ts as in haunts, Duh Leon (as in Larry the Cable Guy's brother) Ponts Duh Leon Ave. usually just "Ponts"
    and it goes on, and on.....

    I grew up on the east coast until I was 8, then west coast. I've been told I have a very neutral accent, though someone once thought I was from Canadia....

    I've spent my time in eastern PA (west of Phila suburbs), west central PA (Altoona area), western NJ (east of Phila 'burbs) and eastern PA (north of Phila suburbs)... in that order. So I use the vernacular of those areas. I don't detect an accent, but if I go to other place they say "You not from roun'hea."

    Vioce sounds like a mix of Lily Tomlin & Gilbert Gotfreid.

    Raised in The Citay in a tough neighborhood. Have been accused of having a part Chicano/Queens accent only when I get stirred up or excited. (Must be my environment)

    Goes back to normal when not.

    If you never saw me, you would never be able to tell I am Asian.

    To a Northerner it would seem I have a thick Southern accent. But compared to many people around here I sound like a Yankee myself. I'd prefer to have no accent at all, but oh well. And yes, Hollywood is clueless when it comes to Southern accents. Example: Nicholas Cage in "Conair". *shudder*

    I've got a "closet" stutter; comes out occasionally with too much caffeine. [Uh-Buh-Deee; Uh-Buh-Deee; Uh-Buh-Deee, Uhhhh That's ALL folks!] A career requiring loads of public speaking has wrestled it down to a manageable level. Still, there are words that just don't "go".

    North Central Illinois(you don't pronounce the s) I don't hear an accent
    Being in a call center taking calls from around the nation, I have been told I sound like I'm from the east coast. I enunciate every syllable, in Illinois we say the "l" in Dekalb

    I've like, tried to, like, you know, rid myself of my like, Valley Girl accent (born in the San Fernando Valley, Van Nuys to be precise). It makes one sound extremely vapid. My father was from Chicago, and I've been told that I have traces of that in my vernacular, i.e. "caa-er" instead of car. My mom is from "Flar-i-dah", where they say ah-renge for orange, but I seem to have escaped that aspect of speech. No lisp, no stutter, voice a bit low for a woman, but nothing frightening.
