I, on the other hand, being from Limerick sound like a a fork being run over a cheesegrater

So that answers my question of where Westlife are from

The People Of LImerick take no responsibility whatsoever for that cacophonous quartet!

Apologies to all in Limerick, but surely someone, somewhere, has to be responsible!! They should be named and shamed

I wish you hadn't told me that. That is where my grandad is from and apparantly where my family name originates. OK, let's not name and shame because innocents like me may get caught up in some unpleasantness

Spanish is my first language, so when I speak english (since I learned it in Miami) I have a Spanish-Miami accent. Yea its funny since I have friends in other parts of the states that they do not understand me at times when I speak.

Quoting areinstein

Anyone wondering what Evelyn or Nikki actually sound like? Girls, do you have that Northen Irish accent people seem to be talking about?

hehehe nope, I'm from Dublin but I don't actually have a true Dublin accent ( thank god for that !!! ) emmm i don't know how to define my accent really, just emailed Pardus to ask him, i know i speak too low at times because people always ask me to speak up ( and no i'm not mumbling just have a low / soft voice) but i make up for that by laughing too loudly, especially if i get a fit of the giggles.... i'm actually curious what he replies ,...... emmm maybe i shouldn't have asked him , i might get a Monty Phyton quote back about aunties

emmmm i've just been told i don't have an accent, that can't be right, can it ??? to quote Pardus --

''You don't really have much of an accent as such, none that I could
define. It's deffo not the Innercity Dub or strong Dub (Muiris style!)
and neither would it be culchie. I think you don't really have an accent as such.''

You should not have asked me, anyway. You know that half the time I can't understand you because you speak too low and too fast so that I just nod and smile and hope that it wasn't a question.
