Go train-train, Leave your brain - Vroom

i'll give you just one example: T. With this letter Americans have four different sounds. T can be silent, so "internet" becomes "innernet" and "advantage' becomes "advannage." Another way is when T and N merge- 'Written" becomes "writn" and "certain" becomes "certn." The third sound is when T falls in the middle. There, it sounds like a D-"daughter" is "daughder" and "water" is "wauder". The last category, if you still care, is when Americans say T like a T. This happens, obviously, when T is at the beginning of the word like "table" or "stumble". And this is just one consonant. The vowels are another story. - one night @ call center, Chetan Bhagat, pg.45

Hi Dida, the Americans have many accents and all kinds of pronouncement of words....
Texas is different to Kentucky to New York to Montana, etc....

Just like Trengganu, Kelantan, Penang....
Boleh lintang pukang when hear these being spoken, ha ha.
Have a nice day, keep well.
