    i've got a canadian accent mixed with a little welsh.i get asked every day"where in ireland are you from" figure that one out

    I have no accent

    People outside the region seem to know I'm from the North somewhere....I don't always get Geordie though. People from here in Newcastle often ask where I am originally from lol. I'm told by people closer to me I lapse in and out of being Geordie/posh...so I guess I don't know what my accent is lol

    West of scotland

    the best, in other words.

    i have a london accent x

    have to agree there.......grexy babes



    cheers, sparkly babes :thumbsup:

    my "native" accent is similar to a weegie one, which apparently doesnt fair too well in the Poll of accents as I read recently.

    I have made some adjustments to it and now its a smooth Sean Connery sounding accent.....not identical in sound with the "sh" mind you....but a lot clearer...lol

    i have a london accent x



    is that a "sarf" London accent or are we talking plums in the gob type accent? :?

    i've got a cornish accent and cant disguise it very well.
    its a bit diificult on the phone when i'm trying to put on my 'posh' voice,and people still think i'm some sort of common farmer type
    (sound a bit like hyacinth bucket now dont i)

    I get told that I sound like I am from Eastenders, which - being from East London - I guess isn't too surprising :giggle:

    I just finished Martina Cole's 'Maura's Game' and I loved that i Knew all the places and the slang!

    I have a Peterborian accent, but apparently I sound posh and then sometimes people think I sound Australian. I am not posh and I am not Australian lol

    North East, not geordie.

    When i go anywhere in the country outside of the north east I get told I have a very strong accent. People here sometimes struggle to understand me!

    I was born in Liverpool, raised in Wrexham and now live in Bolton so my accent is a mixture of all. I have been accused of talking posh and have a great telephone voice. We should record ourselves reading something to give each other a giggle... Or help insomniacs maybe?

    dave whelan ?, all lancs' sound t'same.

    I find it difficult to know the difference between an yorkshire and lancs accent most of the time.

    aye, but Bolton (uz lot) have a very strong areet dialect, a la billy shannon. Yorks is alot more sophisticated, but i sithee meaning ;-)

    I'd say my accent is fairly neutral with the occasional westcountry twang!

    Was it Karl Pilkington who claimed he 'thought' in his accent too? :oops:

    I work with a few yorkshire folks and also travel to the Mancs land, and both are clearly different imo.....

    and both difficult to understand at first....lol

    I am Bolton's Mrs Bucket lol

    some people think I sound scouse, others say welsh, my friends just say I sound posh.

    lol...no, the weegie accent is quite specific. And while I dont mind my accent when its like that, sometimes people cant understand what I'm saying so I have to speak clearer (and sometimes slower) for those who take some time in listening and understanding.

    mine is similar, a year living in central edinburgh knocked the common weegie west of scotland twang out of me. all my mates now think I talk rather posh though i have slipped back into a few hawd on's every now and again.

    I'll take that as a compliment. i thought you'd have sort of cheeky geordie type accent but not so rough that nobody could make out a word your saying. either way your posts are cool so keep up the good work fella.:thumbsup:
