I REGRET NOTHING (everything)
“Ladies and gentlemen, a reading of a modern classic.”
/ˈle.diz n ˈdʒɛn.ɾɫ̩.ˌmɛn e ˈɹi.dɪŋ ʌːv e ˈmɑd.ə˞n ˈkʰlæ.sɪk/
“Greetings, loved-ones. Let’s take a journey!”
/ˈɡɹi.ɾɪŋz ˌlʌvd.ˈwʌnz .. ˈlɛts ˈtʰe.kə ˈdʒə˞.nij/
“I know a place, where the grass is really greener, warm, wet, and wild.”
/ˌaə ˈno.wə ˈpleːs .. ˈwɛɹ ðə ˈɡɹæs ɪz ˈɹɪ.li ˈɡɹi.nə˞ ˌwɔɹm ˈwɛt̚ æn ˌwaəɫd/
Let’s see… North East US is about as well as I can guess for the accent.
Americans have a lot of syllabic consonants, so there are a lot of words that end up having no vowels. The “dark L”, or Velar L (the one said in the back of your mouth) can take the place of a vowel, as well as Nasals (N, M, NG, sounds that push the air through your nose) and most famously, Rs. You can see this in the following words: /n/ - “and”, /ˈdʒɛn.ɾɫ.ˌmɛn/ - “gentlemen”, /ˈmɑd.ə˞n/ - “modern”, /ˈdʒə˞.nij/ - “journey”, /ˈɡɹi.nə˞/ - “greener”.
Another thing that marks your accent as American is the Intervocalic Ts became Alveolar Taps instead of Glottal Stops, as they do in many British accents. You can see this in these words: /ˈdʒɛn.ɾɫ.ˌmɛn/ - “gentlemen” and /ˈɡɹi.ɾɪŋz/ - “greetings”.
Post-vowel Rs are retained in most non-south-eastern US dialects, ruling out the deepsouth.
And finally, you have the East-Coast extra vowel, as seen in this word: /wɔɹm/ - “warm”.
