    As many of you may have noticed in chat, I love accents. What may seem a usual and normal/ordinary way of speaking to us, could be fascinating and intriguing to others. :eek:

    So, in my line of work, I get to interact with a plethora of nationalities. And, with diverse nationalities come a range of accents. Even within our own countries and cities, our accents vary dramatically, not to mention how diverse the membership of LPSG is. :biggrin1:

    So share the nationality of your favourite accents, your hottest accents, scary accents, etc. or even better, do a short voice recording (5 seconds) and attach it. You could say something like: "Hey, I'm [username], and I'm a member of LPSG" :wave2:

    Oooh, SilverTrain - very sexy!

    Ok, my favourite accent is Scottish and then a smattering of Brit ones. Then some smooth twangy Southern US ones.

    I did a voice recording of my own - threw in an "out" and "about" because apparently Canadians say them funny. I don't think so, but you be the judge!

    I have no accent. In your mind, picture Bruce Willis with a flat midwestern accent. That's me. I didn't have to record anything!

    I actually can vouch for that. He does sound like that. I don't need to do it either. Most everyone here has probably already heard my voice but they were likely not paying attention.

    Why thanks, Silver, sounds cool. :wink:

    Hicky, everyone has an accent, hell I just watched an episode of bones and learnt that even deaf people have accents (sign language, of course).

    Vroom vroom, Patchie :cool:

    Cheque's in the mail, Lukz :smile: and you know your's is stately and hot.

    So cute! All i needed was your famous giggle at the end :rolleyes:

    Oh, I should probably add mine too eh. I enjoy making people guess where I'm from lol. Prince Auggie's intro

    Thanks. :redface:

    And your voice is quite sexy. There are indeed many Canadians (and Minnesotans, Wisconsinites, Dakotans, etc..) who speak with a very prounounced and distinctive "ou" sound. You, my dear, are not one of them. :smile:
