XD

I don't think I quite understood accents when I was little, I would simply make my voice deeper and think that that was pretty much it.

There's an Irish accent, and then there's a Dublin accent. Hell, I think there's actually a Limerick accent, but I don't get to hear people from Limerick talk much, so I can't be sure.

@ Chessie: that's cute! XD I, meanwhile, as a kid, though Scar was the sh.t because of his English accent. XD Because of that movie my mom introduced the idea of accents t me...


@ Aaron: I shall learn them ALL! *insert Pokemon heme* I shall be accent master!

But, no, really, my university offers exchange student programs to Ireland... I'm am very tempted... what better opportunity to pick up an accent than to visit those who speak it daily? That, and I have a LOT of Irish in my blood... over half, and, considering I've got a bunch of other things jumbled in like practically all other Americans, that's a high percentage.

Yes, I'm proud of my Irish heritage; who else could be so awesome as to invent Halloween as my Celtic ancestors?

It always makes me laugh when people think that all English people speak posh. XD

FOOLS! XD I correct them by introducing them to some of your slang and confusing the hell out of them.

If I study abroad, I'm going to Ireland. My mom got to go, I really want to go. i mean, her whole side of the family is from there...just go back 3 or 4 generations...I'm named after my great great great...great? grandma. She spelled her name wrong, which is why mine isn't spelled right. (Bridget vs. Brigid)

Funny story, for speech team soph year my HI was a piece called "Accents, Inc." It included lessons on how to talk Cockney, British, French, Scottish, and Swedish. (Of course, everyone knows all Swedes sound like the Swedish Chef from the Muppets...yes, that was in the script. It was Humorous Interp after all). I couldn't do Swedish correctly, though, so we cut it. But it was a fun piece and it gave me an excuse to talk in random accents.

I could probably pull of an Israeli accent if I really tried. My mom has the strongest New York accent, everyone thinks she is from Jersey though.

In other news, this day marks my 5th year on TDP.

*yay*

No such thing as a "British" accent; there are Scots and Irish who'd resent muchly that insinuation. XD In any case, there are tons of different accents within each country; and even within each county. That would be like saying that Mexicans and Canadians have an "American" accent. XD

XDD When people say "American", they usually are referring to "U. S. of America"... what else can you call it? We can't really be called "Statians", or something.

Exchange program? Ireland? America would. xD This will sound crazy ignorant of me, but do you know what nettles are over there? I think I once heard this story of some American getting stung by nettles and having no idea about dock leaves, which are the most immediate remedy for nettle stings.

Now, the thing about foreigners in Ireland is they were apparently born in a barn. They keep leaving gates open, and it's hilarious. "Why are yer cattle running around outside therr field, farmer watsit?" "Poxy foreigners let 'em owt!" "A'right."

I dislike people who think a Scottish and Irish accent sound the same. X_X An Irish accent is awesome, but a Scottish accent is just plain odd. It's like an overblown Irish accent, or something. Conveniently, I don't have to hear Scots talk. XD

Funny enough, I've never heard a Welsh accent in my life, and have to wonder what it actually sounds like. :S
