What kind of accent do I have?

Just wondering :)

Here are some words from Accent Tag videos; soo I'm going to try and explain how I pronounce some of them...

tomato-(tuh-my-doe)

water-(wader)

aluminium-(aloo-min-e-um)

route-(roat)

theater-(thee-u-ter)

salmon-(sal-mun)

caramel-(car-mul)

data-(day-tuh)

syrup-(searup)(sear rhymes with clear ;)

coupon-(q-pun)

mayonaise-(man-aise)

pajamas-(puh-jam-uz)

lawyer-(loi-yer)

Hope I could explain enough :/

Update:

I was born in germany I moved to london when I was four and when I was 9 I moved to the US and now I live in south georgia :)

    The voiced "d" for "t" is American, as in "tomato" and "water".

    Your pronunciation of "aluminium" is British

    "route" is like "root" or it rhymes with "out", but "roat" is something else entirely.

    the "l" is "salmon" is never pronounced in any flavor of standard English.

    "Caramel", "mayonaise", and "pajamas" is Southern American, but not exclusively so.

    Of course just working from your transcription is rather difficult.

    At a guess I would say US American English. However, you do not explain where you are from, or what your native language is.
