...I don't do it to make fun of people, but I just find it very amusing to try and imitate people and to have fun just trying to string my words along.

Sometimes I can do a northern English accent (I'm south western), sometimes "proper" English.

I'm not very good at other accents though - I'm sure people would find them insulting xD

I used to record a "radio show" for the lulz with a friend on my cassette recorder years ago, and we had American and Jamaican characters for some reason. It was hilarious at the time.

I can do a variety of accents from around the British Isles; I can accentuate my south west accent to make it sound stereotypical, and I can go for Bristol, Wales, Birmingham, Ireland, Scotland, the north of England and an even more heavily stereotypical London accent. There's also the stereotypical American accent that we Brits sometimes use, though I've no idea where to place it on a map. Probably the deep south. xD

I am Aussie, so it is easy for me to do an English, or Irish accent and I have a scottish Grandmother/Gradnfather, so I can impersonate that too.

I can't really fake any accent. Except the stereotypical Minnesota accent, and that's more a matter of changing up some words in my vocabulary for me. I don't pick up on accents too well, and the only accents I've heard in amounts where I could imitate them a bit (albeit terribly) are the New York, New York accent and the Missouri accent. Maybe those of Wisconsinites and Iowans, but to me, they don't sound very different at all. Maybe a Chicago accent, since it's not a big stretch.

No, I'm horrible at it XD It's hard enough for me to try and talk in the "proper British" accent, let alone other regional accents or accents from other countries XD Although, some people have said I randomly pronounce some words with a Geordie accent, which is weird since I live in the South West and know no one from the North of England o.O All I can really do is make my own accent stronger or posher XDD

Nope, can't do it. x_X; It kinda sucks because my dad and brother can and when we're joking around I can't join in properly because I can't fake accents if they're using them. ;~; I can't even do a crappy British or Australian accent haha.

I think I can do a horrible hick Canadian one though. XD;

Not really. Well, I can kind of do a Scottish accent, or a Welsh one, if I really try to.

No, I can't really do anything with my voice other than speak normally. XD

Glad to see I'm not the only one~

mmm, I as far as accents go, I can mainly only do generic stereotypical (semi-racist) accents. I can't actually fake a real accent though XD

I can imitate Russian and British accents (note plural), but sometimes when talking to people with a thick accent, I imitate it unknowingly... UNTIL IT'S TOO LATE

@ Signomi - Good attempt, I can still hear a bit of your natural accent in there but it's still very good. :3

No, I can't fake any accents. Well, I guess if I really tried hard I might be able to do a British accent xD

Yeah. I can fake a british accent and a southern one.

I can do southern United States, Scottish, stereotypical South Asian, and stereotypical East/Southeast Asian with an actual degree of success. I can also do a few others, such as Minnesotan, New Yorker, Jamaican, stereotypical English, Irish, German, stereotypical Scandinavian, and stereotypical Eastern European, albeit with less consistency.

No. But I have a friend that is absolutely brilliant at doing accents.

It's kind of scary how well he does them. XD

This is what happened:

-clicked in thread-
WOAHMYGOD THIS IS GOING TO BE FUN!
-clicks in skype-
CAN YOU GUYS LISTEN TO MY ACCENT
them: OK
-talks in various accents-
~Ten Minutes Later~
SO CAN I?
them: yeah

I can apparently speak in a British accent really well. I don't think so, but there are some words that just come naturally in a British accent because of the way my mother taught me to speak (grammatically. It's hard to explain).

For SOME ODD reason, British, Austrailian, and Mexican are the easiest for my to fake. And I'M BLACK.

God, I suprise myself. XD

I can do a country accent, German, French, British, and um.. 'Engrish', if thats what you'd call it. xD

i can fake an irish accent (im part irish XD no wonder i can fake it so well)*aye just a wee bit laddie*

That's quite clearly a Scottish dialect, not Irish.

I can fake a Mexican accent. Even though i'm Indian I can't fake an Indian accent lol.

I naturally adapt to accents, so it's very easy for me to bring them back out.

That's quite clearly a Scottish dialect, not Irish.

And yes you are right, that's very Scottish. I am Irish, I still live in Ireland, and I've been to most of Ireland and nobody here speaks like that. Plus there is no set irish accent, the Dubliners' accents involve not pronouncing anything right (Colin Farrell is a good example), the Cork accents are very rural, the Waterford accent is flat, the Northerners have something similar to a watered down Scottish accent (but never say things like "ock aye laddie"; just listen to Sean Connery). Then there are us from Limerick, the commoners accents are painful and the everyday people are varied.

I can do an Indian accent (who can't?)and a British accent. I can somewhat do french but it sounds like Pepe LePew or Angelique Morgan.

The only accent I can do well is the Indian accent, though I have to be careful as if I do it for too long I start speaking in Hinglish, which is where probelms develop for me.

I can do the London accent well enough.

The easiest accent for anyone to do is the Jamaican accent without a doubt.

I can sorta fake a mexican and and british one. Not very good at them though, I usually end up pronouncing 'can't' like with an u in it. xD

Um...yeah, I do a pretty good British accent sometimes. Haha. And a good Scottish one also. :)

LOL! Siggy, that's hilarious! x3




As for me, I wasn't even trying to imitate an accent, and this guy says I sound like I'm from Manchester. XD
So... yeah.
I can probably do a Southern (US) Accent.
... I wonder if I can pull of a Japanese Accent... Probably can.
.... I wonder if I can do a Hungarian accent? Shouldn't be to hard, being half hungarian after all.
..... and MAYBE. Just MAYBE a Spainish one. (I am part spainish, after all.)


I'll record some stuff. XD
