    Apparently people ( like me) from the home counties of England don't have an accent, its just English...?

    For the record i would say my accent is rather like Kira Knightly

    I’m Australian so I have an Aussie accent.

    However, I grew up watching English movies and tv, and my father who was half-English insisted that we spoke correctly, so I do have a bit of an English lilt to my accent. Here in Australia, it’s mistaken as a New Zealand accent, even though I’ve never been there!

    Doesn't everyone have an accent?

    We all have accents.

    I'm a New Zealander live in Australia for about 10 years, plp pickup very quickly that I'm a kiwi by my accent, when I'm back in kiwiland I'm told to get rid of the Australian accent, can't win LOL

    South African accent here - many say we sound similar to Ozzies - but that is so far from the truth.

    met someone a few days ago from Zimbabwe (white) I thought he was South African, hell did I get it from him about the differences

    From this point on, read every post in your head or out loud with an accent. Hilarious!!

    I have a very slight New England accent. Only friends from other states think I have one.

    Everybody has an accent, it is just the context it is heard in.
