I am a native of Dallas, Texas. As a former ESL teacher and Linguistics student, I get a lot of joy from listening to the endless array of English pronunciations, dialects and accents.
I would describe my accent as predominantly General/Standard American English, with some Southern American English influence.
Examples of Southern American English influences: the occasional merger of [ɛ] and [ɪ] before nasal vowels (so that "ten" sounds like "tin")
the identical pronunciation of /ɑ/ and /ɔ/ as [ɑ] so that "caught" and "cot" become homophones.
I will not attempt to pronounce words in a dialect that is not mine.
