In language, accent is the particular combination of tone, meter, pitch, stress and pronunciation that a certain person has when speaking. A person's accent depends on their upbringing, social interactions and location. Often an accent can be used to identify a person's national or social origins, leading to stereotyping. In tonal languages such as Mandarin, accent is more important to comprehension than in stress-based languages like English.
