The words/ letters in bold are modified. I also drop my ts at the end of words i.e. cat= ca(t)
These are features that nearly every North American shares. And, FWIW, people don't quite "drop" the /t/ in word-final position, it simply becomes glottalized.

not too much specific words (water, daughter, donkey, crayon) but mostly pretty benign

i'll start it off.

YouTube - Post your accent

hopefully a lot of us on CD will post our accents and we'll "have fun" listening to ppl from various states while getting to hear the voices behind the screen names.
Wow. I was born and raised (and still living) in North Jersey, same with most of my family. I have never EVER heard a New York accent as thick as yours. You're either from Brooklyn or Staten Island (many Staten Islanders are former Brooklynites anyway), from what I can tell. But I have never heard such a thick NY accent, and I know a lot of people from Brooklyn, Queens, and Staten Island. NJ accents are very similar to this and while I pronounce words the same way you do for the most part, I know for a fact I don't sound like you do. Thick, thick, thick.

He sounds strongly Hispanic (or black?) to me on top of the NY Accent. Not really a typical NY accent.

He sounds like a friend of mine who is a Puerto Rican from the Bronx.
