    Do you have an accent? What is it?

    I'm bored...but interested!

    I am from manchester.

    Guess what accent I have

    Lancashire (Lancaster). ive always said that Lancashire has the most diverse of accents. I personally can tell a Preston accent from a Lancaster one etc.

    I love & hate scouse, work that out......

    A little bit Geordie...not strong.

    Like a soft Irish accent, don't really like a strong Liverpudlian accent.

    I think all accents can be nice...some just get too strong and harsh, if that makes any sense at all lol.

    I don't think I really like accents. Maybe French.

    I can't understand most Scottish/Irish accents and hate Welsh accents.

    my oh is out at the pub with his friends and last I spoke to him he sounded welsh :w00t: think he has a few lol

    I have a Scottish accent although it's not that strong nor is it specific to any area, my favourite accent is probably Irish.

    cannot stand the scouse accent



    I have friends who stay in Birkenhead and I love their accent! The folk from Birkenhead hate being called Liverpudlians apparently !

    I have a posh English accent apparently, my favourite accent would have to be Irish but I love the Australian accent too!

    I have a lovely accent.....whats your phone number and I will let you listen to it!!!!

    why would she want to give her number to an old man :whistling:

    i'm from shropshire and i don't think i have an accent, lol :?

    I'm a "plastic or posh" scouser, that is I live on the Wirral and I'm considered posh lol. I do agree that a strong scouse accent is rather grating, they have all lost their H's!

    LOL......dunno why she would give it to an old man....she should give it to me instead!!!

    Not unless I put it on. I'm told I'm quite well spoken and posh-sounding.
