Ok here's the deal I was talking to one of my Aussie friends on messenger and mentioned that we will have to talk on the phone so I can hear his voice. I just love the Aussie accent I tell him and he responds with "I don't have the accent it is you that has the accent" LOL So my question to you all is who actually has the accents? I still say everyone else does. Hehehe.

I think that everyone has an accent that's native to their area. Thankfully, I can adapt my accent to whatever place I'm currently in. I loved it when I went to England for a week. I came back talking with a British accent and my parents were laughing. I lost it after about a day of being home. I'm with you though, I love hearing people from different countries talk especially when they are from Australia. :-)

That is awesome. I have an Englishman that works with me and I just have to laugh at him sometimes with what he says. It can be so funny. My pastor comes from the southern parts of the States so he has that Southern drawl and I think that's what keeps me going back is his accent. LOL Thanks for the comment.

Everyone has his own distinctive way of talking or conversing. We say you have an American accent whereas you say we have an Indian accent. Its pronunciation that makes the diffference. The words are somewhat similar throughout but some go according to the spelling of the words and some go for the age old pronunciation.

I never used to think I had an accent until my nephew went to school, he moved to California and my sister called to say the sub teacher asked my sister right away if they were from Ohio cause they had the northen Ohio Great Lake accent.. We are from Cleveland

That is pretty cool. The teacher must have had alot of students or something to havve been able to pinpoint the location like that. Thanks for the comment.
