Re: Do you have a strong accent?

Californian with a little southern American slipping in from time to time. When I am in California I am told that I speak like a southerner and when I am in Florida, I am told I speak like someone from the west coast. That means that people are generally happier when I don't talk at all!

By the way, Southern accents portrayed in most television shows and movies are embarrassingly exaggerated and usually don't match the locale in the scripts. Tom Hanks accent in "Forrest Gump" comes to mind as one that makes me cringe.

I love accents though. The make for good spice.

Re: Do you have a strong accent?

Soft Hebridan Brogue, Highland and Island English is the variety of Scottish English spoken by many in the Scottish Highlands and the Hebrides. It is more strongly influenced by Gaelic than other forms of Scottish English.

Re: Do you have a strong accent?

I like the Scottish accent.There's a lot around here and no matter how long they've been here it's still as strong as when they got off the plane.
I don't have much of a Welsh accent but everyone thinks I'm Irish.
