What I think is a generic American accent, though apparently the official generic American accent is in the Midwest. Midwesterners, to me, all sound like they're the ones with the accent...
My cousins live in the Midwest, Nebraska, and they definitely sound like they have the typical american accent to me, a British person.

So you're implying that all black people have a ghetto accent or something? I love how you associate my ethnicity with a stereotypical accent without taking into account my upbringing and living environment. Whenever I visit my cousins in other areas in London, the differences in our accents are rather noticeable. You don't even know me.
haha clearly someone pulling your leg and yeh reacted and all! XD

As in a Southern accent is charming and lyrical whereas a Northern accent makes people feel like they're being threatened at all times?

I knew some guys at Uni from Belfast and the tone was omni-aggressive. Nice guys but they couldnt say 'thanks' without sounding like they were about to start a fist fight :laugh:
cheers mate..us southerners have it easy.

think the letterkenny accent is yuck..as well as the north antrim accent ...belfast is okay..Fermanagh one is probably the nicest although varies soooo much!

Posh, apparently, but much less posh than most of the people in my school. A little bit American, too.

I'm from the East Coast and to me the Midwest accent is more nasal, and in the northern parts almost Canadian. But actually, I feel like regional accents are less pronounced among younger people anyway (excluding Southerners).

Apparently, I have a Jeremy Clarkson accent. Although I think that having a quad-helix brace in my mouth just taught me to pronounce words properly . . . Although apparently I pronounce some words with an odd accent. I blame my Cockney/Geordie/Irish/Vietnamese mix.

No its not the Minnesota or Texas accent its the one in like Nebraska.

Its the same as the newsreaders. But when I visit America to me people in Florida and NJ sound like they have a general accent.

To me the only ones I can notice are the New England, NYC city, deep south and Chicago ones. West coast sounds normal.

Yeah, maybe when I think "Midwest accent" I'm thinking of Minnesota/North Dakota/Michigan. I think the differences are more subtle here than in Britain, although there's definitely a NJ accent. Florida too, since basically everything north of Miami counts as the deep south. ("The further north you go, the more southern it gets.")

Although, being from the Northeast, I feel like a lot of young people don't have the stereotypical NJ/Boston/NY/New England accents that their parents do.

Maybe there is a New Jersey accent but to me they just sound the same as a general American accent. I think I can pick out a West Coast accent though, it is hard to explain but its a bit different to the General American accent.

Its quite funny because the West Coast accent to me is the same all the way up like someone from Los Angeles sounds the same as someone from Seattle.
