If you don't think there's a lot of American accents, try talking to a group of people from Minnesota, Boston, Brooklyn, Kentucky, Tennessee and Texas, all at the same time.
And that's just a few.

Emphasis. Americans tend to throw the emphasis forward to the beginning of the word. Hence DEfense, PRINcess, ROBin Hood, CaRIBbean, where I would expect to hear DeFENCE, PrinCESS, Robin HOOD, and CaribBEan. For some reason,though, "garage" shifts the opposite way.
