I think the first time I saw it, the European in me read it as Sono-si. Not sure how I found out it was Sono-ki :P

I read it as sono-si all the time :-X

Hime-Chan wrote:Yuri, on what scale do you want to compare our parodies of accents?
I do admit, I've never heard Dutch people speaking English with a Dutch accent, so I don't really have other reference here. At least it sounded slightly closer to English ^^

It's just a French accent. Probably close to a parody French accent, but not too horrible. (and tbh, I can hear it leaking through in your British accent slightly).
As for the Dutch, I know people who speak English like that... Though my interpretation of it was a bit over the top.

@Kor, I only own a built in mic laptop and ipod, but the latter actually records quite well.


Yeah, my accent is leaking through my English, If I add up all the months I've been living in the UK, it's not even 2 years, so I think I'm doing pretty well, considering that some people I know have been living there for longer, and still have a rather thick French accent! I have a 10 year plan to lose it, though!

Aqua: is it because Russians have R in their language?

Darkest Absol: it might be because of your microphone, then :)

Huh, I always read it as 'Sono-ki'. Maybe it has something to with around which language you grow up with. In Finland we don't really use 'c' unless in foreing words. But when it's used it's usually associated with 'k'.

I'm back! First two weeks of school under my belt. Both of my professors have very strong Asian accents this semester, and I'm studying Bilingualism, so I will have fun observing them. One has a Japanese accent, and the other has a Mandarin accent - though I don't know whether or not that professor is from Asia or from a big city with a China-town. (Yes, there are parts of the US where English isn't spoken at all!)

Pretty far actually. Coastal...I live about an hour and a half from the shore, so kinda close? :P
Did you misspell "fair" or am I way off?

You're way off. I live in PA and have never been to anywhere further than Michigan (State wise).

And I've never been farther east in the US Nebraska. Also, accents are more tightly grouped in the eastern US, they've had more time to diversify than in the west. I'll have to look up accents there and see if I can more accurately place it. ;D

Though pop culture has a way of spreading language bits like wildfire, and you don't have to live in a place to pick up part of the accent, since accents don't come from the ground, they come from the people that speak them.

At least I got the country right!

Yep!
Also, I think I speak the way I do because I learned most of my English from TV and my ESL parents. So I always assumed I had a bit of an accent until Nini, my younger sister, told me one day that I didn't. *was disappointed*

Okay, I now know why you sound like you're from Northern California. Western Pennsylvania also lacks the that vowel. Apparently the northern tip of New England are missing that vowel as well. That was the main reason I guessed that you were in the Western US.
Some information on the Cot/Caught merger.

You probably wouldn't get much of your accent from your parents, except in vocab you only use at home. As a child, you got your accent from the people around you, and your parents are only 2 of them. Because of school and socializing with neighbors and friends and so on, you'll speak English like they do, not so much like your parents do. But, topics that you only really speak about at home, things involving chores, cooking, cleaning and what honorifics you use for your relatives - those you'll get from your parents. For example, I can my grandmother, the daughter of Italian immigrants, Nonna. Her mother we call Nonni, and her father Nonno. My German great grandmother is called Uni, (even though she's not my uni, she's my mother's uni... the name stuck.) And I have a great great grandmother that we all call Oma to this day.

First thing I noticed was the two ways you pronounced your user name – one the way a English-Speaker might assume it’s pronounced based on the spelling, then how you pronounce it, along with a short phrase that could have been another language, one that I’m not familiar with. So, you’re probably bilingual to some extent.

You used “y’all” and pronounced –ing as a long N or as –in and used /aa/ for "I", so probably from the Southern US. The retained Rs make me think Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, Utah... south-western, non-coastal US, basically.

Your first language is one that doesn’t have very complex consonant clusters intervocalically or word-finally (“also” /ɛzo/, “hundred” /ˈhʌnɹɛʔ/, “host” /ˈhos/, “first” /ˈfɹs/) but doesn’t lose double consonants the way that English does (“I’m also” /aamˈmoɛzo/, “officially” /oˈfɪɕɕiali/). Your language probably doesn’t has aspirated voiceless stops, because the only time you aspirated any voiceless stop was in “DTT”. You didn’t diphthongize long vowels very often, and your “eye” diphthongs were either long As or all out /ai/s. And finally, you like to put stress on the last and second-to-last syllables in words. There are a lot of languages that have these features, but because of the way "officially" was pronounced, it probably is a Romance language (Italian, French, Spanish, Portuguese) I'll go out on a limb and say, connecting it to the Southern-US, where there are a lot of bilingual Spanish-English communities, probably Spanish is your other language.

More to come later, I have homework due tomorrow that I need to finish.
