Many of these accents can sound drastically different, which I imagine would cause a great deal of confusion to forgeiners. Even in different parts of the UK people think I'm called Matt instead of Mark due to my accent (though I never really understood how Mark can sound like Matt...)
Accents to me in America sound rather simmilar, there's some variations, like the dreadful southern drawl... *shudders*. There's accents specific to New York and what-not, but they still sound simmilar. I imagine a forgeing person might find a brummy hard to understand, I certainly do... bloody southerners!

After that i told him to get out until he speaks normal English . It seems that in very early after American Independence the dictionary author is a person who learned English for 3 months .
