Looking for a proper phrasal verb
I wonder if there's any phrasal verb that means 'speak with a certain accent'.
-Your friend was born in X and have lived in X so far. So it's tricky for him/her to speak with the accent people living in Y speak with.
-Your were born in X and had lived in X till you turned 7. You've lived in Y much longer in X so it's easier for you to speak with both accents.
> It's harder for him/her to __________ a Y accent.
> It's easier for you to ___________ a Y accent.
ThanksWhen I translate what I say in Korean, it comes out as "stick an accent to my mouth", does this make sense?Oh, I got 'nail down'.
