Do you have an accent?

I think I may have asked before but I can't remember the answer if I did!

I think mine is quite neutral... until I have one over my quota
Then it's sort of a northern Welshscouse!

Don't know if I have really?
It does have undertones of the Eastender accent in a way - mainly due to working in and around London for years.

The wife has been here for 20 odd years and still has her Slovak accent. Obviously not as strong as it used to be though.

I have a habit of talking like the last person I spoke to. It's not deliberate. I'm not even aware of it.

Re: Do you have an accent?

Yes 100 %.

Every one seems to like my accent as it is not widely heard in the UK.......unless you are from my local area!

I feel sorry for those who have lost their regional identity.....

My accent gives me a wonderful sense of belonging.
