LBDL, as long as I've been

LBDL, as long as I've been reading your posts I think I've come to the conclusion that WOMEN make your knees go weak. Aussie, Kiwi, Brit, American, Canadian, French... I'm pretty sure it doesn't matter. Smile

Australian's and New

Australian's and New Zealander's end up picking up a bastardised version of the American accent when they live there for too long. The same thing that happens if we live in the UK too long.

I remember reading an article that discussed the fact that we have 'neutral' accents, and because of that we end up easily picking up someone elses accent.

Think Madonna in the UK, but less fake and scary.

We have this thing (here in

We have this thing (here in NZ) we call the 'cultural cringe'.
Basically, when we hear our own accent on tv/film - we cringe a little bit and ask "Christ, do I sound like that?!"

Maybe it comes from having mostly American or British tv shows for so long. Just 20 years ago, our news readers were made to speak with fake British accents!

Our tv/film industry has only been successful for about 15 years and I think we are still getting used to hearing ourselves onscreen.

I guess it's kind of like how some American's cringe (or judge) the middle America / South accent?

We do have slight regional accents, but NZ's and Aussie's have quite distinctly different accents ...

Aussie's pronounce "day" as "die" - or "lay" as "lie" ... so "today" becomes "to die".

New Zealander's will say "different" and say the (i) ... Aussies's will pronounce the "diff" as "def".

Hope that helps LongBeach! ... I think I just had a 'teaching moment'? LOL

Hi Xanadu........ :) About

Hi Xanadu........ Smile

About the accent thing..... I agree. I've noticed that sometimes when someone from Australia/New Zealand speaks 'American English', they can sound like clones of each other. I wonder why?

I'm curious, are there different regional accents in Australia and New Zealand, like we have here in the U.S.??

A girl with an Australian/New Zealand accent brings me to my knees.... *thud*

Yes - hit the haters, with

Yes - hit the haters, with irony! ... They need to round up a bunch of celesbians and do an ad campaign - particularly addressing that whole 'destroying the family' myth.

Just one (random) thing:

Why do Australian and New Zealand actors speak with that fake American accent? ... I can understand trying to sound American for a role, but when they are being / playing themselves? ... You never hear that with actors from other countries.

Portia sounds just like Lucy Lawless ...

Surely there are enough of us over there by now, that we can speak with our natural accents and be partially understood!
