Man With Heavy Southern Drawl Tries To Speak In Neutral American Accent

It can be hard to shed a heavy Southern accent and speak in a neutral American accent, especially when that drawl has been a part of your speech pattern since you started talking.

A few years back Stephanie Shadrick's husband tried to give it a go while she recorded his struggle to set the drawl aside on video, ultimately proving the accent can be shed but certain words will always give the speaker trouble- like "oil".

Had a pal in college from New Hampshire who had a fairly heavy New England accent. He asked me to help him speak w/o it. Was funny going through the "park the car in the Harvard yard" routines.
