>talk to someone for a year until they realise i'm foreign after pointing it out myself, despite thick shitty dutch accent
>talk to someone i just met, have to repeat every sentence twice until they start guessing what i'm saying

why the fuck do people either not hear it or treat me like it's an indian accent

I don't know about other countries, but in America if you're from the upper-midwest you speak standard American English and are considered to have no accent.

People treat my friend from the UK like that.
He has a real low-class accent and its thick as fuck and people either say "HAHA I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW HE HAD AN ACCENT" or literally cannot understand him

I come from a pretty standard English speaking family but as a child I had that problem Elmer Fudd had that made him say "wabbits." Had a half ass speach therapy class as a child which made it go away for the most part. I can say rabbit now but it turned into what I can only describe as an inbred Kentucky accent. No one can understand me because it's so thick and those that can think I'm a simpleton. It's gotten girls' attention though. They say it's cute. But I get the feeling they mean cute as in an "awe he thinks he's a person" kind of way

>>25711625
So do you pronounce it like rabbit or like wrabbit?
>>
>>25711649
Now I pronounce it like "rabbit" but it just has that hint of the-hills-have-eyes personality to it

Last time I checked, people all speak pretty much exactly the same west of the Mississippi and north of Texas, mi muchacho.

Maybe a yander more or a hella less, but pretty much the same.

Why is that such a hard thing to learn? It's just the letter R

The West region is close to General American mainly because it was settled by English speakers from the start, as opposed to other regions that had larger influxes of foreigners which affected the local pronunciation. They still differ somewhat, like pronouncing egg as more like ayg.

holy fuck you sound like a used up 40 year old meth addict whore and it's nigh impossible to make it what the fuck you're saying with all of the words you're mispronouncing
>>
>>25712204
I honestly don't know. My tongue just didn't go how other people's tongue went when I tried to make that sound. It's called rhotacism or some shit. It's like the last and most difficult sound you learn as a child. That's why I'm movies and crap toddlers say "I wuv you." Some people just never learn. Now my Rs are normal. Well at least all my sounds are fucked up equally now anyways

Meth addict whore?

Non-rhotic English doesn't pronounce the r only when it is followed by a vowel. As an example, it would drop the r at the end of batter or friar. Not being able to pronounce it at all seems more of a speech disorder, like apraxia.

It's still an accent my nigga. If you have the ability to speak any kind of language, you have an accent by default. Americans are retarded.
