About Standard/General – West Coast (California)

Although there are many recognisable accents of the west coast of the US, there is also an accent which could be considered standard or general for the entire area, and does not typically represent the specific town or city of the speaker. It might also be recognised by some Americans more generally as ‘General American’, or more formal varieties as ‘Broadcast Standard’.

California is on the west coast of the USA. It is often referred to as The Golden State. California’s largest cities are Los Angeles, San Diego, San Jose & San Francisco. It is regarded as a world centre of the entertainment and music industries, of technology, engineering, and the aerospace industry.
