- Accent

'Accent' refers to the pronunciation of a language. The word accent is often confused with dialect, which refers to more than a variation of pronunciation. Dialect refers to a unique variety of vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation. In fact, everyone speaks with an accent. Some accents, however, like British or American English, are standardized forms of the languague.
