I lost my accent in 1979

I was a freshman at Smith College (western Mass), and in over my head, with nothing more to show than a Kentucky public school education. I realized that when I raised my hand and spoke, at Smith, no one heard what I had to say; they heard a southern (U.S.) accent. So I began to speak differently, so people would hear me, and not the redneck trailer trash associated with my cadences (redneck trailer trash being my best cousins, actually)

What ever happened to Esperanto? I studied it once but it seemed too abstract to me
