everyone thinks i'm from boston. Actually, i was born in washington state and have spent too long living in newzealand and have just become terribly muddled. But hey. It's a unique accent
Yeah I wouldn't know exactly how the Bostonian accent was formed: it's probably very posh 17th and 18th century English (god knows what that sounded like) from the first settlers like the Cabots in Boston, mixed with a strong Irish influence from the 19th century.
It might be unusual that you end up sounding like that.

When in the US and Canada, noone would ever guess I was English. The trouble is, most Americans haven't got a clue what most English people sound like. They think everyone sounds like Austin Powers (Mike Myers is Canadian with parents from Liverpool).
I'd get: Australian, Irish, Swiss (?? :confused:)
After spending many years abroad, I sound English but from no particular region. When you spend so much time abroad you can't keep a rough regional accent. People just don't understand you. So you end up adapting.

I love a hugh grant, well spoken type accent. Cant get sexier than that
I must agree with this Senorita (as Spanish would say) here, as I'm a HUGE fan of Hugh Grant myself, not just cos of his wonderful plummy accent but also his impressive acting.

I REALLY wish IF I could get myself an accent similar to him, cos I quite love him actually (in a NON-sexual sense, of course).

After visiting Venice, I've discovered I HATE italian accents. I don't think a French accent will be much better. And...well..um...I just don't like the English accent anymore and that goes for Australians too I suppose. After 2 1/2 years in college, I've realised that I hate the average American's voice. "Woo dude, kegger!" Don't make me puke!

Hmmm...I don't think I like anyone's accent. :hello:

afrikaans is a language, not an accent.
yeah its an accent as well, its a mix between dutch and french. But you couldnt go to Holland and start speaking Afrikaans becuase all structure of sentences etc is all wrong.I dont mind it, my cousins are afrikaaners.

The only american accent I like is the Boston one, apart from that the Irish and Scottish rock!
