I grew up in Stafford Springs, CT. CT is a virtually "accentless" state in the middle of all the strongest accents from New York, New Jersey, Boston, Maine, etc... I speak French, Spanish, Italian, German, Dutch and am working on some others. Connecticut residents have what is called a "glottal stop" accent, where the T sound is sometimes swallowed, such as in the case New Britain. We pronounce it like New BREH-en. Other than a few minor things, CT residents discard some of the major prevalent accents from the region.
