Hello,

What country do you live in currently (thus what accent do you have naturally)?
And also wondering, what fake accents can you talk in?

I'm Canadian, and can speak a really good Indian accent, and I'm also working on an Aussie one.

I live in the US, more specifically the lower Midwestern state of Missouri and speak what linguists apparently call the south midland dialect. Although I have generally moved away from that and toward more standard General American features.

I really don't know what accents I could do well. I think that I could certainly nail some, but others would undoubtedly think I am getting them way wrong or sound terribly offensive.

Come from SE England. Currently live in Catalonia, Spain.

My own accent is Estuary (i.e. posh x cockney). I can do Cockney and Posh pretty well.

Most British accents I can do, though I suspect that a native listener might pick up little discrepancies.

I do a pretty good espanis accent. Jelou, jau ar iu?

One thing I've noticed about my accents is that I horribly over-exaggerate how they sound, so it sounds significantly thicker than the actual people who speak the accent. After practising me Aussie accent with some friends on Skype for hours yesterday, I watched some parts of 'Crocodile Dundee' and I just kept thinking about how mild their accent is compared to me.

Anyone else experience this?

As those who have met me recently can attest (finlay and audiblysilenced, notably), I am more or less bidialectal in American English and Scottish English. I'm also able to pull out a Southern English or Canadian accent when need be, although there are some shibboleths I trip up on from time to time.

I speak Salvadoran Spanish, and I think I can fake a Madrid Spanish accent and a Vancouver English accent (also in Spanish) pretty decently, though haven't yet tested the former with a native.

I'm American, and since my parents are from Bangladesh, I can do a Bengali accent very well, and in fact some older Bangladeshis can't understand my English unless I talk in a thick Bengali accent. I can do a Hindi accent fairly well, too. Other accents I can do include Russian and South African.

Sometimes i'm good at accents, sometimes i'm terrible. I particularly like doing antipodean ones for some reason. Maybe because people are slightly less familiar with them. South African is fun.

Washingtonian and Texan are my two accents.

I can pull off a Julia Gillard accent when I'm sufficiently steeped in Australian culture.

I live in northern California, and I can do a fake Generic Foreign accent, Australian accent, RP, and a terrible South African one.

Accents (natural):
English (American), Not a very strong one, though, but it is certainly not from the Isles.
Catalan (Standard/Ebrenc), my standard speech got mixed up with the Ebrenc ways when I lived there.
Spanish (Catalan), my Spanish is so tainted it would physically hurt some traditionalists.
Thai (Farang), mai... mai ao...

Accents (Forced):
British (posh)
British (rough)
Northern English
Russian english
Indian
Thai
Southern State's
Country Catalan
Ghetto Spanish
Middle eastern

I'm American and have a pretty typical Upper-Midwestern "Fargo" accent.

I am a Wisconsinite here, speaking an Inland North dialect with Upper Midwestern influences.

(I can try to approximate General American, but I find it hard to do it quite well, and in particular I find it very hard to pronounce GA /r/ and /l/ so I almost always use those even when I otherwise am largely approximating GA.)
