El hilo de acentos

Hola, lo he creado porque mismo me interesan mucho los acentos de los varios países españoles, los acentos localidades de las regiones de España, y acentos de Inglaterra. seguro que a otros les gustan oír acentos varios ingleses.

Si encontráis un vídeo con un acento que nos queréis compartir, lo poned aquí. Incluid el nombre del acento y donde se lo hablan, así es mejor. Gracias!


(Cajun accent) Acento Cajún de Louisiana y otras partes del sur de los EEUU

Can't follow it!!

But it's a fine coincidence you posted this Bob...
This morning it took me a while to get used to her accent (no idea of where she's from... I suppose she's American though):

She sounds Southern. A flat Floridian accent maybe?

I'm only guessing but she sounds like the blonde gun expert on CSI Miami!

Thank you, xchic.

One girl doing 4 accents. I don't know how accurate they are but, what I found funny was the Spanish accent is full of swearwords including the one which was the subject of a thread recently!!
