depends on the language now doesn't it
I speak German with a slight Viennese accent (more when I talk to my friends of course) and Italian with a German accent.
As to my English accent I'm unsure. My father comes from India (did not grow up bilingual though), I learned "Oxford English" at school and I watch a lot of American TV

So everywhere I've been people judged me differently.
India: Are you American?
America: Are you British?
UK: Are you Indian?

But I'm kinda proud nobody ever notices my German/Austrian heritage

Western Scotland, bits of Glaswegian occasionally tossed in. Oh and I am bad as a waiter for fancy restauranting as I am faaaar to upfront like simply saying "Duck?" as the first thing when I get to a table with food. Which can sound like other words of the adult variety.

I don't know why people make fun of it so much... It's *extremely* useful.
I know, eh? I can't imagine what I'd do with the Eh-ness!

I have a sligh Czech accent, mixed with that DC sexayness. I think LZ mightknow what a DC accent might sound like. As for a Czech accent, it is like a Russian accent, though harder to spot. C-Z-E-C-H

Spell it right!

EDIT: WOOHOO! I'm a signified Zhent!

Umm, I dont think I have an accent. I know, being in Kentucky, I might have a hard time knowing my own. My parents grew up more in the west, and because of that I dont have the southern influence. I speak "plain American english," if you will. Don't know how to classify.

That's kept me in tears for at least 10 minutes, even though I'm sure you've told it to me before
