Sorry, I was just joking that he sounded like Worf (as Worf was the other voice I heard when I listened to the audio clip) & by 'little twang' I meant sort of a bit of a Southern accent.

Va Beach Guy...I listened to you (first I thought you sounded a lot like Worf ) & notice just a little twang.

Awww come on guys, VaBeachGuy ‘s got a nice accent in my opinion. . I like it. I like all Amercian-like accents, I think they’re cool.

 

We’re forgetting something here…he’s the coolest admin around and the best site I’ve ever seen. No nice comments, no STF.net!

I have 3. I'm a native Californian, but we lived in Texas for 4 years, and Long Island for 16 months, so I have a "CaliTexIsland" accent. Very few people believe me when I tell them I was born in California. :)

I'm not offended in the least, no need to apologize at all. I've lived south of the Mason-Dixon my entire life, I've only gone north of it a few times in my lifetime so having a bit of a southern accent is only natural.

supposedly yes. back when i was in school a teacher said " we have an accent, we just don't notice it." it had something with how we say certain words or something. plus i'm okay at faking other accents.

I'm no good with faking accents although I've been known to speak a bit American sometimes, mostly picked up from the comedy "Friends".

 

Neither am I any good at telling what they are. Are any of you guys able to do this?

I would say that I have an eastern Kentucky/eastern Tennessee accent. It's quite strong, but not really "southern" ... much more harsh than that and nasally.

 

Very much like Loretta Lynn, I think. If you've ever seen Coal Miner's Daughter, that will give you a pretty good idea of what I sound like.

 

It's funny because I never lived in Eastern Kentucky, but my mom's family is from there. I grew up immersed in that accent from the time I was an infant what with my grandparents and aunts/uncles. I find that it really comes to the front when I'm riled up about something.

 

I hold a B.A. but nothing get's your point across like a good old-fashioned and well-placed "ain't."

I've just heard MrPsychic on Yahoo he called my modem. I couldn't talk back I didn't have a microphone; how I recorded my voice was on my laptop and transferring it over on my pen drive. I expected him to sound like VBG. He was in fact the total opposite of what I thought. Nice voice. :dude:

 

Here's a point Alterego brought up...anyone notice an accent between our posts?

French was my first language, but I do not have a French accent.

I lived in southern America all my life, but I do not have a southern accent.

I recently moved to midwestern America and people told me they detect a hint of the south in my sister's voice, but not mine. As far as I can tell, I do not really have one, or at least not a standard, recognizable one.

Americans think I have a bit of a Canadian accent, but in Canada they think I have a slight American accent!

I was just arguing with my boyfriend a few weeks ago about whether or not all people from Australia run around saying that all the time (after he went to a concert of The Living End, of course...). He tried to tell me they did, and I disagreed...

 

...but I'm beginning to think he was right!

 

Shhh... Don't tell him. :welcome:

Well, some people did vote 'no.'

 

I voted 'no' - my English sounds like the standard 'news anchor' English.

Just like my mum, I have a Birkenhead (very similar to Scouse) accent, but when I'm speaking to important people, speak like the Queen :biggrin:
