I was born and raised in the South in a house just up the street from The Citadel in South Carolina. My family moved there when I was a little older, so it was a little difficult to explain to my friends that I had moved to Charlotte. My parents just told me it was a great experience, but that I had to wait around until I was ready to tell them.
I guess when I say I have a southern accent my friends don’t always get it. I’m not sure how people would react if I told them I was born in Georgia, but I guess I wouldn’t mind.
You should probably be a little worried about me. I am a very southern accent. However, the fact that I am currently residing in Charlotte makes my accent that much more noticeable. It is not the best accent to have when you are trying to convince people that you are from the south. What is worse is that my friends who dont get it do not understand why I do. I mean, how could they not understand that I moved to Charlotte because I was a southern girl from Atlanta.
As it turns out, you are the southern girl who moved to Charlotte. While it is probably not the best accent to have, it is the most widely understood and therefore the most likely to get people to think I am a southern girl from Atlanta. I am from the south, but I grew up in the north. So my accent is a little more distinct.
I know this is a bit of a weird question, but do people in the north really have a different accent than the south? I mean, a lot of them don’t even realize it, but a lot of the folks who aren’t from the north are from the south and they all sound the same. That is why you hear “Mississippi” or “North Carolina” or “Alabama” with people from the north.
This is like all the other questions, but a little more weird. I am a young woman living in a new city in the south, so I have only been here a few months, and while I have a bit of a southern accent, I am actually from Georgia. I feel like I have some kind of southern accent, but it’s more like a southern-esque. I still use the same words that I did when I was in high school, but maybe a different sound.
It is not a geographical accent, nor is it a southern accent. It is a southern, Georgia, accent. It is also an accent that is quite similar to my accent, but maybe a little more “mellow”. Anyway, this means I do not use the same words as everyone else in my surroundings. Although I do not speak my mother tongue very well, I am quite aware that I have a southern accent.
So when people talk to me, I always ask, “What do you mean, I don’t speak my mother tongue?” which I think is very funny.
Well, I have to say that for many people, it is a very strange sound to hear. I can tell people that I speak English, but they will always insist that they speak my mother tongue. I have never understood why people do that, but I know that it is just a matter of preference.
You can also ask something like “What’s up with the stupid dog?” to get people to stop calling their dog “stupid”. It is also a way of getting people to stop using “stupid” as a verb.
