I have no accent. I am from Boston, and only have an accent that is "diet Bostonian" if I hang out with my cousins for a couple of days, or if really think about the way I used to talk before I came to Florida where everyone has no accent. "Park the car in Harvard Yard" becomes "Pawk da ca en Havad yad." After I read the Puritans for an hour or two, that same sentence sounds like this: "Geeves, my good man, 'mind pulling around the Bently? We're off to a picnic on school grounds."
