    Mancunians find it very easy to imitate other peoples accents because there accent is so plain. People from some other regions find it more difficult.

    Well during my three day stint in Liverpool I saw an article on the local news suggesting that all people from up north would sound the same, so even Mancunian and Scousers would sound exactly alike! Haha! But when I said I have no accent, I meant it. All you'd be able to tell from my voice is that I'm alive.

    My accent is fairly plain but when I'm in Scotland ppl say I sound English and when I'm in England they say I sound Scottish. Also, when I'm shy I sound Irish and when I'm on the phone I sound posh and high pitched. Anybody else have a different phone voice?

    Everyone has an accent. It doesn't have to be regional.
    RP is still an accent.

    Accents don't always have a name put to them.

    Well, I have never heard you, obviously, but I would lay money on you having some kind of accent, whether it's an obviously distinguishable one or not.

    I can be rather posh - but for now I shall stick with safely describing it as a middle-class/aspirational upper-class (yet having nowhere near the means required materially-speaking) well spoken London accent.
