My accent, probably Australian Western Australian that is, there are differences in accents across the country. Although people do occasionally pick that I am Scots by birth, they tell me it is the way I pronounce some words.
My late mother, who was from Clarkston Airdrie, would never let us speak like "Glesca Keelies", we would get told off, not that she expected us to speak posh or such.
I never really understood why until I was doing a unit on communications skills at university, and an Aboriginal women, who was a guest lecturer, describe the way Aboriginal people talk, they have different ways between themselves and us Wadjilas (white fellas). She explained that what my mother was doing was to prevent me be labelled by the accent that I had, which can be a barrier later in life. The same way that Aboriginal people protect themselves from being labelled as uneducated because of their accents.
By the way, Aboriginal people have about 500 dialects.
