I just got back from a two-week road trip around the Pacific Northwest region of the U.S. and Canada. And though it was my own country (the non-Canadian part, at least), it felt completely foreign to my eyes, which are accustomed to the swampy, lush Southeast.<p>One great thing about the Pacific Northwest region is that while there are nice cities, you don't have to go far to find wilderness.

You hear me on the radio. I hear myself on the radio, many times a week in western Washington, and I didn&rsquo;t think so. But, a researcher at the University of Washington in Seattle tells me I do have an accent &ndash; it&rsquo;s in the way I say that very word &ldquo;accent.&rdquo;</p><p>Apparently my pronunciation is a dead giveaway that I grew up here in the Northwest.</p><p><a href="http://kpluwonders.org/content/i-wonder-why-we-don%E2%80%99t-have-accent-%E2%80%A6-or-do-we#overlay-context="><strong>Read more on I Wonder Why ... ?</strong></a></p><p> Fri, 02 Dec 2011 12:30:00 +0000 Bellamy Pailthorp 3288 at http://www.kplu.org We don't have an accent in the Northwest ... or do we?
