If you've heard an accent spoken most of your life, isn't it just a "natural/normal" way of speaking to you? You don't really notice it's an accent at all, because everyone around you sounds the same, or at the very least, similar. Then, when somebody from "outside" comes along & opens their mouth...that is when you say, "Wow, they Have an Accent!" And, at the same time, they are thinking the exact same about you (after you've said a few words). LOL
I think that everyone, no matter where they live, has an accent.
What do you say?
Does an "accent-less" way of speaking exist?
