Accent Tag! You're It.

RE: Accent Tag! You're It.
All right, here's middle eastern seaboard. Please excuse the disheveled appearance and less-than enthused expression - I worked 8 hours and went to school for 3 more after that and will drop into exhausted sleep now.

When I do this, I will have to take two goes. One which has no accent that I know of (guess I'll find out?), the other is the one tinged with Russian accent. Might be interesting. I'll have to do it tomorrow though, since I can't go into hysterics during 'quiet hours'. Smile

RE: Accent Tag! You're It.
You go summer, I'm with you on this, my accent would be about as vanilla as yours. I don't use ya'll though. That and I speak at very close to the speed of sound so everything is kind of one blur. I'm not one for enunciation or elocution though. It's Aluminium ( /ˌæljuːˈmɪniəm/ AL-ew-MIN-ee-əm) or aluminum (American English; /ˌəlˈuːmɪnəm/ ə-LOO-mi-nəm) adrain. Damn brits and their special spellings ! Tongue
"There ought to be a term that would designate those who actually follow the teachings of Jesus, since the word 'Christian' has been largely divorced from those teachings, and so polluted by fundamentalists that it has come to connote their polar opposite: intolerance, vindictive hatred, and bigotry." -- Philip Stater, Huffington Post

Love it, kichi! Your accent was pretty mild compared to some Aussies I've heard, but very pleasant.

Thankyou Alei.

As I said...I can and DO unconsciously "pick-up" accents from those I am speaking with... I guess it is just my attempt at being understood. As for Zen's belief that my voice is akin to honey... Undecided doubt that very much.

All in all I found the exercise quite enjoyable. Can't wait to hear Vaeolet!! Big Grin

Kids in Manassas grow up with no accent. If I'm back up there, whatever I have goes away completely. If I'm around Southerners, it thickens. [shrugs]

I have to.

This is a great idea btw. Maybe when I get my cam back from the person I lent it to and get drunk enough to overcome my aversion to the sound of my recorded voice, I might have a go meself. Don't say you weren't warned.
At the age of five, Skagra decided emphatically that God did not exist.  This revelation tends to make most people in the universe who have it react in one of two ways - with relief or with despair.  Only Skagra responded to it by thinking, 'Wait a second.  That means there's a situation vacant.'
