    Not so much Chinese... What I'm getting at is I'm pretty sure the majority of SitePoint is from Austrailia and New Zealand. Most of your list is going to be "Other" I think.

    My accent is undefined (or so I've been told)

    It also depends how tired I feel and who I am talking to. If I speak to an American, my accent tends to be American while if I speak to an English, my accent will be more Englisht, too.

    I also included a slight Spanish accent since I am not returned to my home country, Spain, and I don't speak English anymore... so I guess that will affect my accent.

    When I am tired, my accent is more obvious. Then, everybody used to ask me where I was from.

    They knew that I was not English, they just couldn't guess which was my home country

    My accent is an irritating mix of Queens English, Northern England slang (Buxtonian and the like, ai), American and every now and then, Dutch. (English spoken with a Dutch accent is so awful, it hurts the eardrums).

    After speaking the lingo again for a while, I generally tend to settle donw into my almost-proper English accent.

    I'm going to go a step further with the whole English/British thing, and rant that I don't have an English or a British accent, despite been born and bred in England... instead, I have a Yorkshire accent.

    If you would like to here my common Northern England, Yorkshire accent, feel free to listen to a recent radio interview I did with the BBC. Warning: This recording is located my business Web site and the interview discusses my business, so I apologise to anybody who looks at this as self-promotion. I'm sure most will understand, and this warning will give you all a heads up<link removed>.
    I met a number of online friends in Toronto last year and one guy who was there (Some of you will know Vito from WebHostingTalk) needed a translator every time I spoke for the first hour or so of us meeting.

    Sorry Jamie, happen to think the interview is great, but the link does break the self-promo guidelines - need to find a more neutral yorkshire accent!

    Ah. No problem. I'll contact the authorities on SitePoint now to see what I can come up with which is within the guidelines. Better still, I'll go away and read the guidelines first.

    I have a New Orleans(American) accent, which is eerily similar to the New York City/New Jersey accent, and nothing like other Southern accents.

    British - English - Northern English - North Western English - And even still my accent is totally different to most peoples in north west england. I live in Merseyside and speak totally different to people in a city only 30 miles away. Thats how much english accents vary, 30 miles makes as huge difference! I should also add that I've pretty much never met somebody in person who has the american perception of a 'British Accent', I'm talking about the 'Jeffry the butler from the fresh prince' accent, and the 'Hugh Grant' accent. Theres probably about 3 people in the poshest, richest parts of london who speak like that, so infact I don't have a 'British accent', I have a watered down scouse accent because whilst I live in Merseyside I live just outside Liverpool so my accent isnt quite scouse but obviously influenced by it.

    There's a few more than 3 and not only in the "poshest and richest parts of london" I know a lot of people who speak like that - nothing wrong with it.
