Thursday Three

1. Do you have an accent? I have a West coast Canadian accent. At least I was told this much when I was in England and Europe. People always knew I was rom Canada.

2. Do you like accents, which if so? Aye. British, Irish, Australian, Scots Gaelic. Anything that draws out thw vowels and perhaps plays with the ‘lilt’. I like musical languages, so when native speakers of those musical languages speak english, it gives me a whole new appreciation of my own tongue.

3. which accent really annoys you? y’all, ain’t etc. Texan. No music. It jars the ears.
