I seriously think that they english have the accent, but, itís like my debate yesterday on this argument ďThis house believes that one manís terrorist is another manís freedom fighter.Ē As you can see, one side will see an attacker as a terrorist, but, the attacking side will see themselves as freedom fighters. We canít correctly go with it and just say who is who, with what accent. Itís very subjective and we canít just say straight out who has the accent because we all think differently and have different standards, live in different places, and experience and see and feel different things.

If you want people who don't have an accent, try people like me. Edinburgh accents sound so neutral and bland.

Yeah... we both have accents... Like Americas definietly have accents to me, because I'm British, but I know for sure even though I can't hear my accent (people from around my area), in other parts of britain, I can hear a susinct accent, so this doesn't really make much sense It'd probably be the same in other parts of America I would imagine since its bigger...

It's spelled AMERICAN. Not americain.
I have a southern drawl but there is nothing worse than trying to understand a cocney. My mom was English and my father was German. WW2 never ended around my house. When they got in to it you couldna be understanding the lot of them...

Just out of interest, how do people in your area speak? The south of England has varied accents, does it not?

Apparently the Edinburgh accent was voted the nation's favourite not so long ago, but it's so dull and neutral. Newcastle and Liverpool get my votes!
