    And eric, I think your enviroment can change your accent slightly but I don't think it will completly change it although, I have a relative, she moved to america and now sounds proper american.

    I don't know if you would pick an accent up but there are also a lot of words that are used in certain areas.

    For example - in the North east.

    Divvent yee hoy wor lasses tabs. (ignore the spelling but thats how it sounds)

    In English would be - Do not throw your mothers cigarettes.

    Accents depend on how old you are.

    If you're younger than 14-16 and you move to a different place, with a different accent, your accent will change.

    But if you're older than 14-16 then it won't change and you will continue having the same accent

    Some of my family have lived in Australia for about 10 years, and you'd have thought they were Australian.
    My half brother also moved to Scotland about 8 years ago, and last time I saw him he sounded pretty Scottish.

    Those are the figures psychology would argue.

    Apparently once the brain goes through puberty and various chemicals (hormones) are release the brain stops language/verbal development. - well not entirely... just the accent part

    I don't beleive that.

    My relatives moved while they were older then 20 and they sound completly american.

    I do not think age affects it tbh.

    Intresting opinion tho.
