    I split my time between Liverpool and Cambridge, so half the time I'm surrounded by a load of scals with scouse accents, the other by loads of "posh" ones. I seem to have acquired a half mix of these. No matter how hard I try, scousers think I'm posh, and Cambridge peeps think I'm scouse. I'm not originally a scouser so thank god my accent is barely noticeable, but it's audible when I leave Liverpool. The problem of not being a scouser is that I can't get the scouse accent to sound right.

    Which accent should I go for? Which do you prefer?
    I used to live in Cambridge so obviously i'd go for the Cambridge accent- it rocks! :cool:

    I have an odd kind of scouse accent that I think sounds really noticable when I am with friends who aren't from my area. Last night everyone at my drama group (which is in Cheshire) kept making fun of it I want to change it and make it less noticable!!

    Lauren you would be much more shaggable with a Cambs accent than a Scouser one. My opinion. Is there a pic of you?

    Lauren i'm exactly like you, i can't change my accent though. it's a bit frustrating as i'm not accepted anywhere. I was born in Yorkshire, but i sound too posh for them, and i live in Surrey now, where i repeatedly get corrected for certain words i always say in a northern accent. It's aggravating. xx

    :hugs: aww i know how you feel. we should be proud of how we speak (or at least not care). sometimes when i come home i can't understand scousers, and i think "oh god, do i sound like that when i come back to cambridge".

    ramroff - yes i have a pic, but i am really not attractive!!
