When someone mentions a person "having an accent", you assume they are from another country, even though everyone who speaks has an accent, amirite?

Haha, that's true. One of my friends told a guy I "had an accent" and he assumed it was something like Russian when really I'm just from southern Missouri, so I have a "hick" accent. :D

ono smilie An accent IS literally a way of speaking DIFFERENTLY, i.e. from another country or dialect. It's a distinction in pronunciation and grammar.
