    being on a pats forum, I would assume most people to have the bastan accent. I have a maryland accent (so my friends from bumf**k wv tell me)

    People from Boston think I have a Central Mass accent. People from North Central Mass think I have a mid-central Mass accent.

    Everyone has an accent except me. Even the people who do the TV news don't talk like me. They have a TV accent.

    I have a mild English accent as I moved here when I was 12 - almost 28 years ago (yes, I'll be 40 in March :().

    But it's so weak my Engliash relatives think I sound 100% American.

    My girlfriend lives in DE, and she grew up in Jersey, so she has a mild Jersey accent

    I have a rapidly fading Northern English accent. That means I say glass (short "a" sound) instead of "glahss", cup (a guttural, German style u) and so on. My accent is fading rapidly as I have lived in London for seven years.

    I lived sort of in the Leicester/Loughborough/Derby area, they were all within easy driving distance. My dad was born in Yorkshire, my mom in Wales.

    Despite not having lived there for over 5 years now, I have retained the lovely Roe Dyelin accent here in the south. It gets worse when I drink.

    Nothing's funnier than sitting at a Red Sox-Braves game during the summer when someone with a drawl shouts "go back to Boston, you bleepin' Yankee!"
