    I have a bit of a Boston accent on certain r sounds, and a bit of a new york accent as well.

    it makes sense cause I live in Mass, but my family is all from new york

    I've worked hard to shed the Philly accent I have and obtain a generic "American" accent.

    I used to think that I didn't have an accent. But after several people have told me that I have an accent, that must mean I have some kind of southern accent. ^^;

    But it's not a "deep" southern accent, because I don't believe my accent is very noticable. And I don't think I sound like a Valley Girl, either.

    Australian some of the time due to being born in Australia however there's times where other accents come through.

    My family background is part irish and part english (part of my family came from england and the other half from Ireland) despite the fact I'm born in Australia so I've somehow got the other accents coming through every now and then.

    When I talk normally it's an Aussie accent. When I get excited sometimes according to my friends I sometimes come out with a english or irish accent depending on the type of excitement.o_O
    I've been asked at times whether I was from overseas and I'm usually like no I was born in Australia and then they'd ask whether I've gone overseas to those countries yet I've never been overseas in my life. The furthest I've been is tasmania.^-^;;;;;

    My dad apparently has a Aussie accent according to an American he talked to so I didn't pick up anything there and same with my mum. I can understand picking up the irish accent. I use to hang around my grandma alot who was directly from ireland but the english accents a weird one considering all my relatives that came from there had passed away before I was born.=/

    Anyway I found I also have a strong irish accent when trying to speak german for some reason. Seriously if I went to Germany and spoke German everyone will think I'm from ireland and not Australia due to how strong the accent comes through when I'm speaking it.XD

    It's been a long while since I've spoke german unfortunatly. I can't even remember hardly anything anymore but I use to be okay at it many years ago.

    I have a very strong Long Island accent.

    When I go away out of state, as soon as I open my mouth people say, "Oh, you're from Long Island, aren't you?" ^_^

    Basically n/a
    Same with me. I used to have southampton accent, but that was beat out of me. As my dad's family is like a london accent, and my mum's is welsh, I became 'Cockney Welsh'. But I think liverpudlian and irish is cool.

    Mainly (I think anyway) I have a Southern England accent however I've been known to have sudden outbursts of a Northern Irish accent which I get from my dad.

    A few of my friends have also said that I have an accent as if I have something stuck up my rear so I can only assume they mean slightly upper class.

    I live Virginia. I don't have a southern accent except that I say mornin' I drop the g's other than that, it sounds neutral or a generic American accent.

    I'm not an accent at all.

    But the accent I speak with is generally a mix of northern and southern. I don't sound southern, but do say things like y'all. I notice there's also a Baltimore influence when I say "warsh" (wash), and a Pennsylvania influence when I say "yeeah" (yeah). My parents both grew up near Baltimore, and my dad's family is originally from Pennsylvania.
