How do I break my accent? I sound like a normal mid American yet I have the occasional southern draw. I love in Kentucky. Is there anyway to break it?

I can't tell you have an accent.

I too am from Kentucky and it's weird. People here think I speak really eloquently and always ask me where I'm from, but people everywhere else notice immediately.

OP, I'll tell you a story that may make you reconsider.
>Going to visit some friends in Canada
>They ask if I want to go to a bar, that's not really my thing but I say, "sure!"
>while we're out, this cute girl asks about my accent
>I tell her I'm from Kentucky
>"Do you mean like, KFC?!?! With like horses and shit?"
>Yeah, like horses and shit
>The night goes on, we both become intoxicated, she asks if I want to go back to her place.
>The best part was on the way there we made out and she grabbed me by the collar and whispered, "Fuck me like I'm your cousin."

Shit was fucking hilarious and hot. There's no reason to be ashamed of Kentucky. We're pretty fucked up, but we're chill.

>girls love southern draw
what part of the country are you in

>>16682595

Highland Heights.

This is true. My accent isn't bad at all it just has its occasional flareups.

>>16682684
New England. It's not easymodo like a British accent, but it's a definite step above BAWSTAN.

Shit, nigga! You're practically not in Kentucky, anyway. (I drove up that way this past year to collect a swarm of bees for my bee hives.) Lol! We could hang out, if you wanted to. At least you're not from eastern Kentucky or the deep Appalachian part.

But yeah, you can use your accent to your advantage, sometimes. Remember, while it's true that we share a dialect with heathens, inbreds, meth addicts, and sisterfucking tobacco farmers... We also share the accents of regal southern aristocrats and hard working people of the earth.

A southern drawl is a great accent. It's an immediately recognizable accent and if you go outside your state, or even your country, people will straight away remember you, mostly because of your accent.

I get the same for my North Queensland Australian accent. It's kinda like a southern drawl, but more slang terms and euphemisms. Get girls from other countries interested on voice alone. Get compliments online when I talk on voice chat with yanks.

I feel like I'm the only female in the world that fucking hates British and Australian accents
