That would be typical of the New York accent.

New workers are known to ad "er" to words that end in A, and an an "uh" sound to words ending in "er." For instance, a New Yorker would "get a pizzer (pizza) around the cornah (corner)."

You all sound the same to me, 'cept I can tell a southerner. As for the UK, I can tell the difference between poms, scotts and irish. I have no idea what a welsh accent sounds like.

Man, nobody would know I was a southerner if they heard me speak. I tend to have quite good English for a Tennesseean. As for the New York accent thing, I think the 'pizzer' thing is mainly in Brooklyn. Maybe cause of all the Jews?

I've heard one. I can't describe it, but it's the coolest of the ones I've heard from the UK.


And I'm sure you could tell the difference between a Wisconsin accent and an NYC accent. Midwestern/Pittsburgh English in general is considered completely accent-free, at least as far as American English is concerned (I suppose the British did invent the language).

Philly has a nice little accent as well, but it's kind of similar to the NYC accent. It would be like an untrained ear trying to tell apart a Brit from a South African. The accents are too similar for that to be easy.

Are your parents from the North or educated in the North?

And mine and D's tribe has nothing to do with "Pizzer.," you racist goy prick. We can, however, explain the pervasiveness of Yiddish expressions in the NYC area.

Okay, that was obviously a bad attempt at racial humor. And yeah, a Welsh accent is somewhat distinct when compared to British or Scottish.

Edit: Actually yes, I'm half Jewish. My mother is from Brooklyn and I have several relatives up there.

I'm sure the tone in your head was silly and playful, but online, you need to use smilies to convey that. For instance, "goy prick" is pretty offensive language, but my smilie alerted you that it was just to be goofy.


I actually found the comment funny, but there have been occasions where truely insensitive remarks have been posted about ethnic/religious groups in MT, and that can't be tolerated, so when such comments are approached at a much lower level of offense, care must be taken to show that it's a joke to avoid it escalating to anything truely vile and profane.

Okay, lets try this again.

I could notice a difference, but I wouldn't know which is which.

I can tell a South African from a Brit, but probably because one of my best mates is from SA. Blod Dahmond uh

But you're exposed to that accent. Most Americans (me) aren't (I actually am and still struggle with it).

Some guy I used to play lacrosse with had a fairly noticable accent, but it's sort of diminished over the past few years.

No no no, I definately remember a scene where Leo's character is telling the girl (was her name Maddy?) that he was from some country that no longer exists and she goes, "Don't they call it Zambia?" or whatever Z country. I definately remember that.


Regardless, I think he sounded South African.

Wow, this place has changed a lot in like three weeks..

And about the New York accent thing on the previous page, each borough pretty much has its own accent. On Long Island, we tend to change the "o" in a word to "aw." For example, dog is "dawg," long is "lawng," etc. It's hard to explain. But when you hear a person from Brooklyn speak, you can automatically tell that they're from Brooklyn and not from, say, Queens. And people who live in the city tend to have a snobbish air about them kinda.

I don't know about other New Yorkers, but I can distinguish between the accents here.
Color

subjective.

I hear that in Brooklyn as well. And a bit in Philly, too, but Philly is basically a wannabe NYC.

Major nerd alert!

I looked up the dictionary.com word of the day, tatterdemalion, and its pronunciation is E E E Q E in 12/8 time!


Weird, I would've pronounced it as 6 eighths. Why does it matter that it's 12/8 time, do you have to leave half a bar rest after saying it?

I've always wondered what my own voice sounds like. I've heard that your voice always sounds better to yourself than it does to everyone else (something about resonation or something). Well, I think I have a pretty sexy voice with a pretty sexy aussie accent.

Few days ago I was playing Team Fortress 2 on Xbox, and for some reason all sound from headsets was reverberating. I was surprised at how Scottish I sounded compared to everybody else.

Too far. The only tooheys worth drinking is old, and I know you meant new or teds. Cascade is tasmanian, why would a newsouthwelshman drink a beer made by triple-headed inbred tassy tiger killers (apart from boags, a fine ale)?

Hey, I have no idea about alcohol. The only piss I have ATM is a bottle of baileys and my sis owns a bottle of tequila. To be honest, I barely drink .

If you cant drink it, sprinkling some salt on your tounge and biting a lemon before shoting the tequila can make the bite go away.

I love tequila, except it's pretty damn strong.

Slammers are the reason I hate it so much. I like tequila sunrises but it's just too much for me to drink straight. Same goes for vodka.
