We all have accents, But Im American so I voted English lol

I have alot of friends that I call every once in a while, or chat on yahoo voice, And I think they just sound cool.

but in america, Theres so many different accents, Im southern and I have that kind of drawl to my speach, Then the Yanks just have that weird sound to them, and texans have a speach all to their own, same with hawaiians and alaskans

Oh dear, not the whole politically correct things again... like we said in the other thread, political correctness has gone too far.

I'm from up north so I have a deep, sexy accent (actually, most of the UK thinks the Geordie accent is horrible, second only to the Scouser's).

If you want some sort of idea of how we speak, listen to Sean Bean's voice (he played Boromir in The Lord of The Rings)

yeh the geordie accent is bad, thankfully I don't live right in the middle of 'Geordie land' (aka Newcastle), I live in a small town called North Shields, so I don't have the full accent, I pronounce words properly (I don't say 'I'm gan yem', I say 'I'm going home' etc), but I admit my voice does have a geordie edge to it.

But those scousers, what the hell?

hiya, I'm from liverpoooooooool!
