    I'm totally moving to Boston if I ever live in the USA. Apparently, people there talk normal.

    My accents go all over. Oxford upper crust accent, surfer/stoner, Hispanic esse and Irish or Scottish accent.
    I redact everything I have written or will write on this forum prior to, subsequent with and or after the fact of its writing. For entertainment purposes only and not to be taken seriously nor literally.

    Def. Italian. I don't really care about masking my accent anymore; tends to disrupt the natural flow of the conversation. I speak english just like him:

    From my perspective, most italians, spaniards and southern americans possess a really similar accent.

    I've lived in America all my life, but in normal conversation I talk like someone who was born in Russia, moved to Britain, and then spent the remainder of his life in the U.S.

    I was visiting a friend in North Carolina (and this is barely the South), and I just about died every time I purchased anything or did anything else that involved verbal exchange.

    Your kisses, sweeter than honey. But guess what, so is my money.

    Nope, he's Cockney. He drops Hs and other consonants in places I don't, th-fronts (which some Estuary speakers do but I don't) and his vowels are a little different. Some Estuary speakers are closer to the Cockney or to the RP end of the scale than others, so it does cover a range of ways of speaking really and there are borderline cases at each end which are harder to categorise, but I think most would class him as having enough Cockney features to qualify as Cockney rather than Estuary.

    A better example is the Beckhams, especially Victoria as David mumbles a lot. I speak just like Victoria Beckham in terms of accent, only much more rapidly, clumsily and falteringly. I prefer typing.
