Accents… We all have them. Well, some of us don’t. Or at least many of us think we don’t even though we do. It’s interesting how even when a language is shared, our various cultures alter it or are influenced by other languages. Letters get ignored, sounds changed, and although not always spoken to reflect it, words have their spellings changed. We accept that other people talk funny, but the sociological implications are broad. Accents tell people a lot about who you are, where you came from, perhaps where you were educated and perhaps how long you’ve been in a country. Even though these effects are multiplied many times over throughout the world, I’ll focus on accents people have with English here in the U.S. because I don’t understand what goes on in other countries.
