Re: The San Francisco accent

I believe I thought that we did not have an accent because we all spoke the same. I left the city in 1968. I have some SF friends up here in the mountains and I still can't detect an accent. I have many high school friends in the city who are of Russian heritage. They do speak with an unusual speach pattern maybe because they are first generation and are bi-ligual.
