Great idea. The wiki hates me -- would you add me?

(Though I can't tell if there's anything particularly Californian/San Diegan about my accent. I'd like to know if there is!)

Is this page mainly meant for what accent you would have when speaking English? So in my case: a Dutch accent? (but I would say that would be pretty easy to detect :))

Or also, what accent I have in my Dutch recordings (my first language)? If not this last, it can be removed from the table.

Um... The accent listeners are most likely to encounter? I don't think it'll be realistic to ask for every accent you've ever done in a LV recording. Although, if you want to share the info, knock yourself out :D.

(My French recordings would be "Québécois attempting to sound neutral"... LOL)

Thanks for participating!


Hey Jc,

Okay. Sorry, I'm used to listing the accents I do on my resume.

Would someone mind adding me?

I live in SW Virginia, but according to a couple of accent quizzes, I have a neutral/Midland accent, whatever that means. :) I honestly have no idea what kind of accent I have. Any accent experts out there, feel free to listen to any of my recordings and provide feedback.

Please can someone add me to the UK section sometime?

UK > South West England > Bristol

"Soft West Country accent" is how the reviewer of my first solo described it

(I think that's also known as "Country Bumpkin" or "Yokel" :lol: )

Thanks,

Rachel

JC, can you add me ?

I'm not sure of how to describe my voice, or dialect, so let me know what you hear. I'd be honoured to know, in fact.

I think, Secrets, your voice is similar to Cori's which is described as a "Warm, clear and friendly voice". Also, "sultry" like Hugh's. Lyrical is another word you could use and let's not forget your Welsh renditions!

Rachel, THANK YOU so much **BIG HUGS** You're a star!!

Welsh is like being Norwegian/Swedish, we use high/low pitch, so sound like we're singing instead of speaking. Apparently JRR Tolkien based the language of the Elves on the Finnish and the Welsh, the two oldest languages of Europe.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
