It's hard to define what your true linguistic identity is unless someone tells you, but based on your personal and external observations what sort of accent/dialect do you use to speak English?

I'm Japanese, but I've been told that I speak a hybrid of "standard British" and North-Eastern American. I believe my English is mostly British, but I can only pronounce certain words (like "actually") in American.

R.P, but thats because of my schooling and my dad.... mum has an italianish accent. I can also vary my accent accordingly to the social setting.... I can be urban (not just with the slang, but also the accent) and can also do the asian british accent (quite a few paksitani/indian fwends)..... I don't do it intentionally, it just tends to happen over a short space of time!

Well spoken combination of northern, west country and birmingham. And so proud of it too

R.P I guess, with a slight Northern twang because of where I was born. Only really comes through when I'm mad though.

I think I speak normally, fairly well spoken and i don't say things like "fink" for think, and "sumfin" for something. I'm going to say, standard british.

I speak in a cross between Received Pronunciation and Indian English - somewhat like a cross between Neville Chamberlain and Jawaharlal Nehru.

I'm Anglo-Irish but I picked up that accent from my parents and my schooling....

I don't think there is a "standard English" accent.
