User's info

I am a native of the United States. I was raised in North Central and North West Florida. I graduated from Florida State University in Tallahassee, Florida.

I have a passion for language and fascination with accents and dialects. I completed a Medical Terminology course in college, and absolutely loved it!

I speak with the General American (GA) accent , influenced to some extent by a Southern American English (SAE) dialect.

I defer to pronunciations given in the Merriam-Webster Dictionary.

*****************************************

General American (GA), like British Received Pronunciation (RP), as well as most standard language varieties of many other societies, has never been the accent of the entire nation. However, it has become widely spoken in many American films, TV series, national news, commercial ads, and American radio broadcasts.

While there is not any single formal definition of General American, various features are considered to be part of it, including rhotic pronunciation.

The General American accent is most closely related to a generalized Midwestern accent and is spoken particularly by many newscasters. The famous news anchor Walter Cronkite is a good example of a broadcaster using this accent.

General American is sometimes promoted as preferable to other regional accents. In the United States, classes promising "accent reduction" generally attempt to teach speech patterns similar to this accent. General American is also the accent typically taught to people learning English as a second language in the United States, as well as outside the country to anyone who wishes to learn "American English". - Wikipedia

Here is a good example of the General American accent: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OxA6sSTAaws&feature=related
