How to use accent in a sentence?

  1. Katharine McPhee:

    … I just pinch myself when I get to spend time with him on a personal level, i love his outlook on life and how he treats people. He’s really a special person in my life. What I’ve learned from him is how lucky we are to do what we do. He’s always reminding me and it’s comforting to know that it’s people to walk through this life he’s had – working with incredible people, being friends with ex-presidents and world leaders – and still have that perspective. He’s so well-connected, but still just a simple guy from Canada with his little Canadian accent!

  2. John Melendez:

    Jared Kushner and Donald Trump picks up the phone and I started talking to The President. I never said to Jared Kushner and Donald Trump that I was Sen. Menendez. I was just talking in my Long Island accent. The thing is, you hear my bad Long Island accent and a voice that Jared Kushner and Donald Trump has talked to so many times, the President wants to be accessible to members and likes engaging them and wants them to have the opportunity to connect. The downside of that is sometimes the channels are open too widely and mistakes like this happen.

  3. Rizwan Manji:

    It was very strictly, like, the joke was on the accent.

  4. Sandy Valdivieso:

    When the flight attendant said we were heading to Dhaka, we believed that this was how you pronounced 'Dakar' with a Turkish accent.

  5. David Dean Rusk:

    Let me say with a Georgia accent that we cannot solve this problem if it requires a diplomatic passport to claim the rights of an American citizen.
