    Well, I guess they do since it is called English.

    It seems that the different English speaking areas of the world put a bit of their own twist on things. I guess those in the USA have butchered it the most. Heck we don't speak the same English in regions of America.

    That was good. It was almost as hard to follow as some accents from Minnesota.

    We needs some good Aussie and UK accents now.

    American English actually is pretty easy.
    Simply put a clothespin on your nose and speak as usual.

    I had an economics professor named Chakraborty.

    The first time he spoke I had to look up because I thought Sean Connery was in the room. It sounded exactly like him but I was expecting an Indian accent. The rest of the class noticed too. He said he gets it all the time. He was raised in a UK funded mission for orphans so I guess that is where the accent came from.

    Apparently Kiwis sound like Aussies or Poms ... a slight s-grenade in there folks.

    In Norfolk we had our own dialect, it's still often used actually although not by many of the younger generations.
