There are at least 3 "American" accents: Southern, Western, and Northern. I wonder what people think of when they say "American accent".

ugh where to start...

At the ignorant person to post American's can all be shot on sight. All I have to say to that is simply: Grow Up.

Someone mentioned that America is infatuated with what we can't have and I can attest that this is very true I wrote a 12 page paper about just this in my last English class.

God I hope it's not the southern they think of, that just makes us all look like a bunch of red neck hillbillies

V.I.P.
Oh there are much more than that. You can't narrow it down to South, West, and North. There are differentiated accents within those regions as well.

I like to practice my Irish accent at times because thats just a badass accent.

Shame the Northern Irish accent doesn't have the same charm as the normal Irish accent

Uh... The answer to that (at least in my case and just about everyone i know) is a flat NO, we don't. Most of us think Americans are stupid ****s who should be shot on sight. America is nothing but an errant colony, and should be brought to heel.

Agreed.


Anyway I have a friend who is from the UK and he says he tried for like a day to copy our "accents" but got bored.

I'm from South Dakota, but I'm not sure what our type of accent is. I think we sound the same as most Americans... I can only tell between my accent and the typical southern accent.
