So here's my question. Up until the age of 8, he spoke fluent English(equivalent), but upon being made a slave, he was only allowed to speak the slave tongue of German. Ten years of slavery and he was freed, and was for the first time in those ten years able to speak English again.
So, here's my question. What would his speech patterns be like, and his accent? I'm pretty sure he wouldn't have some kind of really heavy German accent or anything like that, but I don't know quite how light or heavy it would be.
