    As somebody who lives in east Texas... Our accent in larger cities has changed so much it sounds more like the example he gave for california now. The people out in the country do speak like that usually though sooo.

    If I wanted to learn more on accents and dialect differences centered on English as the spoken language, where would I go? How would I learn more? I’m a writer, so writing accents has always been something intriguing and before I wanted to write I wanted to be an actor but I lacked natural talent. I would like to learn more all the same.

    My southern accent is so boring compared with other dialects/accents. I’ve even been told I have a decent newscaster voice with little to no accent at times, but British, Australian, Irish English accents are something I’d love to learn properly.

    I think for the American Accent (Get Out), he might've been better using AAVE, especially bc Kaluuya is a Brit, so African American Vernacular English isn't native for him (but AAVE also varies across the states/areas, Philly v DC Metro, for example)

    Please please please learn some more about Irish accents. "Southern Ireland" doesn't exist and neither does one "Irish accent". That first clip was absolutely terrible and sounded like a very unnatural attempt at a North Dublin accent and it's very disappointing that you could be so specific about other countries' accents but then the Irish ones don't matter.

    I was watching Stargate SG-1 and the chick who played Troi on Star Trek. She did a Russian accent and I wished an expert could tell me how bad (or good) it was. I couldn’t tell if it was her bad acting that made her accent sound wrong or she just did a terrible accent.
