I will never forget a situation at work where a person born in Pakistan and one born in Ghana were trying to speak to each other in English. Both had lived in the USA for many years. There accents (word intonations) were apparently each difficult enough for the other to understand that they simply could not understand what each other was saying, although I could understand both of them perfectly.
