I grew up in Arizona.
From what I read, it is considered to be one of those locations in the US with no accent. Of course, to someone from the north or south, I’m sure I had an accent because I didn’t sound like them. Overall, I think the point was you couldn’t tell from my accent if I was from Arizona, Nevada, Colorado, Oregon… or a number of other states. Maybe. I guess?
Anyway, now I live in Texas. I’ve lived her for eleven years. If you asked me, I would say I don’t have an accent.
I have been using this dictation software called Dragon. I concluded I must have an accident, because Dragon does some interesting things with my phrases.
Dragon put: His deep-fried’s voice rumbled across the line.
Really? deep-fried’s voice? It was supposed to be deep voice. Where did the fried’s come from?
Dragon: …that between the look in that statement
Supposed to be: …that between the look and that statement
She would gets turned into Should.
Dragon: … and for a moment you like about the boy
Supposed to be: … and for a moment Eli thought the boy (how did Eli thought become you like about…?)
Ginny is often times Jenny or Jimmy
So yeah, I guess I have an accent.
