    Whoa wait, I was actually right on something like this? My ears didn't betray me?! That's awesome! Did you ever spend time down around San Antonio, by any chance? That's where my father is from, and he still speaks like he's from there to this day, albeit very diluted. And no worries, we all do. :P Even Patrick Stewart, I'm sure.

    People here in Minnesota pronounce coupons "kyupons"

    I'm the only person that pronounces it "kupons"

    I've been told I have a slight southern accent mixed with a hint of English. It stands to sense as I was raised in Houston, TX, while British literature and friends contributed to the latter.

    Yeah, most of my time in Texas was near San Antonio.

    I have an English accent (born and raised in the UK)

    My favourite accents are Scottish or Irish accents, South African accents and sometimes soft and subtle American South accents

    I have a Boston accent
    I couldn't say I prefer any accents though.

    I've got a super boring Eastern-American accent. Though if I'm around people with other accents for more than 5 minutes, I do tend to pick them up completely unintentionally. Case and point in I just got back from Disney World and was at Epcot a few days ago browsing a store in the UK section, and by the time I was checking out I realized I had a British accent going.

    My favourite accents are for certain Irish and Scottish, though English trails closely behind. I also really dig German accents, and very certain southern America accents (think Applejack from MlP).

    Which kind? To someone from there/who has spent any significant amount of time in the city, you learn quickly that North Enders, Southies, and Easties at the very least are all distinct, thanks to ethnic neighborhood differences. :P
