In order to continue getting-by in the United States of America (our homeland), we all need to learn the NEW English language! Practice by reading the following conversation until you are able to understand the term "TENJOOBERRYMUDS.”
With a little patience, you'll be able to fit right in.
The following is a telephone exchange that could easily occur during a call between you as a hotel guest and room-service somewhere in the good old U S A today ...
Room Service : "Morrin. Roon sirbees."
Guest : "Sorry, I thought I dialed room-service."
Room Service: " Rye . Roon sirbees...morrin! Joowish to oddor sunteen???"
Guest: "Uh..... Yes, I'd like to order bacon and eggs."

Repeat 5x fast.
Would you prefer he speak in his native language?ReplyDelete
Accents are difficult to overcome, especially if your native language is not in the same family as the language you are trying to speak.
When you consider that some languages contain sounds that don't even exist in English, it becomes more apparent how difficult it can be.
The only time it bothers me is when they catch an attitude with me. I'm pretty good at understanding even extremely thick accents, so it's not that big of a deal for me.

Freethinker, it happens.ReplyDelete
Had it happen to me in Yorkshire. They throw that Yorkshire accent on thick and you have no idea what's being said.
Rational Nation, how many foreign languages do you speak?ReplyDelete
I was on a tour bus in Washington D.C. a couple of days ago and the standard taped version they usually play was broken. The guy that tried his best to explain what we were seeing as we traveled along the city streets actually did a good job as far as I could tell but I only understood about 25% of it. The other 75% was completely jibberish.ReplyDelete

We have unique and devious ways of smoking out closet liberals and crypto-Marxists in these here parts.
FJ - Reminds me of the old trick of asking some poor unsuspecting soul to say LEASE PULL several times in succession in a loud voice.ReplyDelete
You then ask him, "Why are you calling for the police? I didn't do anything wrong, you stupid jerk."
On that level.
I get it. Benny Hill made great hilarity from such things.ReplyDelete
Speaking of which, Quadrophenia is finally back out after a DVD hiatus. The working class London accents were so thick I wished it had subtitles.
Yes, Silver. If we can't find humor in life, life is not worth living.ReplyDelete
One of the great ironies from my point of view is my enjoyment of hearing educated British people -- and all educated Europeans including Russians -- speak English.
Their vowels are so much more beautiful than ours, and they often know more English words, and speak more clearly than Americans on average. I have less difficulty understanding English spoken by educated foreigners than I do listening to an average cross section of Americans.
Our diction and ability to modulate our voices has degenerated along with everything else.
Europeans have MUSIC in their voices. WE tend to sound like factory whistles, foghorns, ocarinas and kazoos run amok -- especially our women.
Their vowels are so much more beautiful than ours ...ReplyDelete
You'd love Arabic.
Whenever Semites try to speak English, Canardo, some of the ugliest sounds ever emitted on this earth come out of their throats.ReplyDelete
Their influence on how English is spoken in English-speaking countries has been deleterious to say the least.
Well Freethinker I was alluding to the fact that Arabic has no vowels.ReplyDelete
So was I!ReplyDelete
Semitic languages are not languages so much as diseases of the throat.ReplyDelete
Guttural, guttural, guttural!
A pity such sounds have been utterel.
Hawking up snot is the general effect
Semites make whenever they cheer or object.

Sounds a little like Bawlmerese.ReplyDelete
"Hollyday: See Crissmiss, Fansgibben."
You mean BALTIMORE, Lady Liberty?ReplyDelete
I think you're right.
You don't have be foreign-born to speak unintelligible English.
Regional dialects in all the English-speaking societies of the world is a fascinating study all by itself.
We need a Professor Higgins to preserve it all using recording techniques and writing in the International Phonetic Alphabet.
I once lived in Sussex Keeyaownih, Dullawir, so I know just what you're talking about. ;-)
