Re: Voice recognition

  While it's true that many ,urban and suburban americans have the media 
standard accent,because TV is their community,it's still an accent.  If 
listen to all the dialects of English spoken around the world ,you would 
never mistake an american one for any other ,except maybe Canadian -but 
those are dicernable too. People in the SE and NE still tend to have 
distinct accents by which one can often identify social srata as well as 
region.It has changed alot Steinbeck talks of being able to tell what 
someone was from by their accent.
