I have been told I have an accent, but only by people who are not from the West Coast. Us over here think the East Coast has an accent, and vice versa. I sometimes find myself talking like a Canadian, since I grew up so close to the border.
My parents add an "r" to alot of things, like WaRshington and WaRsh. Good lawd, drives me nuts! My friend says toRlet, instead of toilet, and her mom says pallow, instead of pillow.
We have words up here and people have no idea what they mean, just like other places have words we don't say/know, but they all mean the same thing.
When I was down in Mexico, we hung out with the World Cup Mountain Bike team from England, and I got such a kick out of listening to them! I couldn't keep up most of the time, but it was great.
My favorite accents are Scottish and Irish though, I could listen to them all day!!!
At the moment my husband and I are taking care of his 100 year old grandpa, he is from Warsaw, Poland, and I think he is making both of us have a new accent! I can pretend to have the Polish accent by adding "ski" to the end of everything.
Oh, and btw, I say Wens day.
