When you're out of state or out of the country maybe can people tell where you're from by your accent?

I think I have a non-accent. We had a neighbor who swore I was from Canada....in freshman year some people thought I was from Germany/western Europe

What about you?

EDIT: I ALWAYS read The_Bird's posts with a wicked awesome Boston accent.....I'm probubly wrong though

I can lay a western PA/Pittsburghese accent on so heavy you won't know what I'm saying, but I don't think I show at all in my everyday speech. If it's anything, though, that's it.

I used to have a very strong NY/Brooklyn accent, having grown up in Staten Island. When I got to college I decided to drop it and now my speech is pretty neutral.

Today when I tell people I'm from SI I usually get, "What? Where's your accent?"

I am from the DC Metro/suburban MD area, and have no accent whatsoever. I did pick up a little southern drawl when I went to college in North Carolina, but it's gone now.

I have noticed lately, I sound a little like Bobby's mom from Bobby's World when I said certain words with a hard "o" in them. Weird.

Of course...every time I leave the area, folks always ask if I am from the Phila region due to my accent and phrasing.

Us midwesterners are the only ones with no accent. All you other guys talk with crazy outlandish tones and pronunciations. Doncha know, eh.

Man, I was at a wedding last weekend and there were some THICK NJ accents going on. My wife's friend married a guy originally from NJ. He had mostly lost it, but some of his high school buddies sounded just like Goodfellas, Sopranos, all that stuff.

Those are NY accents. Northern NJ has some NY accents and southern NJ has some Philly accents. I have none...
