I have been told by a Japanese woman that "midwest" American is no accent at all. But then I have been told by an Austrian man that Californian is no accent at all.
Well..Americans do have accents....actually..certain states have their own accent. And obv, you know that..cause you're not dumb.
Yes, I'd like to think that it's somewhat of a lazy accent, where you talk through your throat instead of your mouth. If you start talking with you mouth, you sound British. Half-way between throat and mouth, Irish. Throat, American. Deep throat (STFU), southern.
