Everyone has a way of talking. How you say what you say well that's an accent. What words and phrases you use is more about dialect. But what is there to hear in an accent? Or are we just tricking ourselves with our own bias? Who knows. That's probably a social psychologists or a linguists job. Still, it makes you think a bit, right?
