    I guess I've got a normal Canadian/American accent, although outside of like the southern states, new york and Boston, I can't really tell a difference between the dialects of it.

    I loooove Australian and Irish accents

    I have a California accent. We're kind of a mix of accents here, sometimes identical to what people in the Midwest sound like, or the East Coast, but rarely the South. Really though I sound like any given person you might hear on American TV.

    And this is totally germane to the topic: an interactive dialect map of the USA.

    I'm some sort of sloppy mix. Sometimes my accent switches from general American to Southern for a short time though. Not very many people I know at work are native to my state, and I seem to get a generous amount of foreigners at my work too.

    American accent here, specifically Midlands. Basically means that I might sound like I come from any given part of the country. There are a few words that have a bit of a hispanic tint because of the area I grew up in, but I actually ended up with a pretty different accent from others I grew up around. I like the blandness of my accent just fine, so I'm happy with the way I speak.

    I also kind of like Scottish accents, not quite sure why, but I've always enjoyed the sound of them.

    I live in the southern United States, but my accent is not southern sounding at all. I guess I have the typical American accent? One could say there is a slight Hispanic tint to my voice, and for good reason, because I am Hispanic, but I don't really think I do. My accent is sorta plain, lol.

    I don't really have one (Unless there's such thing as a Canadian accent), but I really like Australian accents the most.

        I have an Aussie accent, it's not like Crocodile Dundee accent (although I do a pretty good impression) more like Adam Hills.

        I love Irish accents and the stereotypical British Gent' accent.
        But I suppose English accents can be pretty hot when they're not being slaughtered with fecal matter.

        I'm Australian, but I've been told by quite a few people that I don't really sound Australian. My accent isn't incredibly strong, and I've taken measures to remove some of the Australian traits that I find annoying out of my voice... so that's probably why lol.

        The best example I can think of is generally in Australian accents, when one word ends in a vowel and the next starts with a vowel, Australians conjoin the two with an R sound to maintain the flow of speech. So for instance, if someone were to say "Pamela Anderson", it would some out "Pameleranderson". I've gotten myself out of that habit.

        I... don't think I've got a particular accent lol

        I grew up watching and learning English through Americans shows in Nepal so most of my pronunciations and I guess my general accent was kinda generic asian-american, but now that I've lived here in London for more than seven years I'm a cross between asian-american and asian-london, so I pronounce different things differently. Like some things I would say in an american way while others in a british way. I definitely use more Londonish dialect and sociolect however in real-life.

        I don't know why but I love American accents. I find them weird and funny compared to accents here in the UK aha

        I'm English/German/Sioux (among many other things, because I'm a mutt) but live in the US and I've really never noticed having an accent. I speak like my family, meaning I use phrases and words that don't make sense to other people, but that's it. Unlike my relatives, I don't pronounce words incorrectly (i.e. "crik" rather than "creek", "warsh" instead of "wash",...).

          I have a Canadian (Toronto) accent. I like a lot of other accents (if they aren't too thick and I can still understand what they are saying.) Though.. I am not particularly fond of South-London accents, and sometimes NZ accents are either a hit or miss for me.

          I'm from Alabama so I have a bit of a southern accent. I don't think its overly strong though.

          I like the Irish accents and British accents (but I still don't understand why girls swoon at it so much.. big deal it's a british accent).

          I've always lived in California but for some reason over the past 3 years I've found myself talking half a day like a Texan or something. I don't know why, I just do.

          I'm English so I assume I have an English accent (and have been told I do), so let's go with that!

          I love Irish accents above all, they're so cute and endearing and yet carry a hint of robustness and power. I also adore Welsh accents because they've always struck me as jolly and fun, and Danish accents are amazing because they're Danish. I don't like American accents because... in all honesty they kind of annoy me haha. They sound so forced and I can never tell if they're real or not, despite whole states sharing them. Texas is the exception though, that's a fun accent. :D

          http://vocaroo.com/i/s0vS4zec93Et

          I guess I have an American accent? I speak pretty clear English without any region-specific accent.

          I love British accents. Also, Scottish accents are cool.

            According to one of my real life friends, I've got a Michigan accent, whatever that is. Which is strange, considering I live nowhere near Michigan.
            But I love German and Russian accents, they're beautiful. The language is great, too.

              I'm Australian, and Nowra-bogan.. (It's a hole town in Australia for all you over sea critters out there).

              Nah my accent isn't too bad, I don't think.. Well, I can hear me sound Australian, but my voice is pretty deep, and it's not all 'G'day mate hows it garn? Awr dats swell aye!'. But I don't pronounce 'Th' correctly.. I say it like 'fe', which I don't see the problem, but to others they're like 'Talk properly!'

              My favourite accent would have to be Italian, it's so sexy. Oh, you speak italian? Stroof me dingo.

                Michiganians don't have specific accents... xD

                Y'all might think I got me an accent, but I ain't got none-a them fancy ways-a talkin'.

                Like most American chicks, I think British and Australian accents are hot, like omg. Irish and Scottish accents can be cool, too, but they remind me of Craig Ferguson and it makes me laugh :U

                According to Went, I have a Spanish accent.

                According to me, I sound very flamboyant.

                According to certain others, I sound like Morgan Freeman.

                Take your pick, really.

                  I have a bland Californian accent. Sometimes I really do mix up my l's with my r's, though. I like Morgan Freeman accents.
