I’d say I have an American accent if a foreigner were to talk to me, but it’s not the stereotypical American accent.

There’s multiple American accents

East Coast, Southern, Midwest, West Coast (apparently)

Also, I don’t understand how we changed accents from England because this country is of English descent, most people had a British accent, and their kids would too.

How did we get so far away from it :joy:

We’re talking in general language. Not like southern. So that’s California, Florida, New York.
