American Accent Tour

Accents of the USA

Perdita Lawton voice over artist gives us some tips, tricks and phrases to speak as characters with American accents…

New York Bronx Accent – to sound like you’re from the Bronx say ‘coffee’ as many times as possible while eating a bagel.

Standard American Accent (East Coast) – try saying, ‘I’ll get a cheeseburger and fries’ or ‘I love cheeseburger and fries’. **Calm down we’re only joking. 😉

Jade’s Lisping American Nerd Accent- don’t speak clearly and be as nasal as possible.

Perdita’s Annoying Valley Girl Accent – speak in a high pitched, excitable tone of voice while saying ‘loves it’.

Mountain Hillbilly Accent – slow down your speech and say, ‘Brendon come in off of that porch,’ or, ‘don’t you be giving me none of that horse shit!’
