The mispronounced, over use of slang, often poorly educated twang, abortion of the use of the proper English language. It often includes mis-spelled words such as color (actually spelt colour by those who invented English). Depending on the geographic region, the accent commonly changes the sound of the vowels and where the emphasis is placed on words. For example, "police" with emphasis on the vowel "I" changes to an emphasis on the "O". In addition, the grammar includes words are blended together rather than properly pronouncing individual words. "You" (used in the plural) becomes "You all" and is shortened to "Y'all" which isn't acutally a word in any language. In large groups this can become "all, y'all" a redundant form.
An American accent mis-pronouncing the phase "You will get arrested by the police" sounds like "All y'all gonna get busted by the PO-lice."
