Could one say:
A-I missed his accent.
1-I didn't notice that he had an accent.
2-I didn't manage to tell what sort of accent he had (although I noticed he had accent).
I didn't get his accent.
What would that mean, if anything?
1a. I didn't catch his accent (i.e., I couldn't place it.)
1b. He was speaking with an affected accent and I wasn't able to place it (i.e., I didn't get [where] his accent [was from]).
2. I didn't understand why he was trying to speak with an affected accent (i.e., I didn't get [what] his accent [was suppose to accomplish]).
