Hi I know this is incredibly random but I was wondering if Americans have distinct accents. I'm an American of course and the Australian and British etc are so very distinct to me, I was just wondering if our American accents were very distinct to them as well. Anyways Euros and Aussies, input is appreciated.

Italian. Loud, obnoxious. Most of the american's i've heard sound like they're from the south.

I don't think they have a distinct accent though, it varies from state to state.

Of course you ****ing do, everyone has an accent, you're just so used to your own voices you think you talk normally, just like everyone else, it's pretty simple to be honest.
#12
Yup, you do.

EDIT: Of course, given the size of America, it's going to vary from state to state, but if you were to gather them all in one room, you could still tell they were American, yes.

There are many American accents, just as there are in other large/diverse countries.

Isn't that obvious?

i think it depends on where you're from in the states. i find some americans to have noticeable accents while others sound like they could come from Canada like me

Yes, it's very noticeable.

Southern accents make me laugh, I can't take the people seriously

Do you mean distinct between different parts of the country? Or just in general?

i asked a canadian (first mistake) if there were any music shops around here and he thought i said 'buisiness' something. im from virginia so. i dont know how you could confuse music with buisiness. can the brits and other people talk normal? cause i can try to talk like them with the accents and stuff.

people from boston and new york have the most noticeable one.


well id say a deep southern accent is extremely noticeable, or a new orleans, bayou-type accent is also very apparent.

It varies from area to area.

I'm from Pittsburgh

Personally i dont speak any, what they call "Pittsburgheese"
becuase I think peope sound retareded when they say things like "dahn tahn" (down town)
or "Pixburg" instead of Pittsburgh

or "crick" instead of "creek"


but if you go south, people have a distinct way of prounouncing some words.


Honestly the same goes for people from England, depending on where you are from there are various accents
and any country for that matter

We're just used to our own accent, so we think its just a normal accent. But to other accented people, they can easily notice the difference. Just like we can easily notice the difference of others.

Also, isn't there the southern accent and the northerner accent in America?

Canada has the same northerner accent as America in the west, but in the east side, its more of that stereotypical Canadian accent, eh?

And doesn't England have two different distinguishable accents as well? There's the Cockney accent and then there's that "normal" English accent that we always hear in television.

[quote="'Tommy[fin"]']/thread basically.

It's good to try and elaborate a bit though.

Yeah, I edited my post to check something first. I may still end up laughing though. Even if he did mean distinct between different parts of a country.
