  1. speech-language pathologist here. that’s actually a dialect. an accent is the impact of your first language on your second language.

    EDIT: from the first article i could find on language differences— An accent refers to a phonetic trait from a person’s original language (L1) that is carried over a second language (L2); whereas, a dialect refers to sets of differences, wherever they may occur, that make one English speaker’s speech different from another’s (Wolfram & Fasold, 1974).

    call it whatever you want but it’s an important distinction in my work. i’m from the midwest US… i demonstrate dialectal variations consistent with other speakers in my region. i’m not bilingual; therefore, i do not have an accent. if i tried to learn spanish, characteristics of english would carry over and i would be speaking spanish with an english accent.
