Brought on by the sad, sad reminder that non-brits are incapable of pronouncing Worcester, I thought it might be fun if we had some type of challenge or (potential collaboration) comparing accents, or region phrases/slang?
Lol, this sounds interesting
I mean, I’ve obviously still got my British accent, but even looking at the difference between the way people speak in Portland, Oregon, versus Phoenix, Arizona is…
Agree… Or east coast vs west coast (the southern state would be interesting)
My Irish accent isn’t that great but I can always try
You betcha a Minnesota don’t ya know accent would be funny too
I love me some accents! I am so game for this!
(This was inspired by the fact that non-brits can’t pronounce Worcester or Worcestershire sauce, btw. Don’t think that’s the theme we’ll go with but https://byte.co/b/GCG83TKbRwb is how you pronounce it correctly)
What do y’all think would be a good thing? There’s the classics…vehicle…pop/soda…
do I see Brit mentioned finally an excuse to use my real accent, get in
Yup, this is a BRIT positive space.
Even if my accent is just. a mess.
finally, a place I can call home. Nah jk. I really never realised how Worcester would be an iffy word for non-Brits lmao. What’s your accent?
This sounds fun. My accent is southern. Sweet Home Alabama.
I would love to bust out some accents
Do you need an Indian accent? Asking for a friend.
Essex. But not really. Like at all.
It’s what happens when you have a welsh mother, a Londoner for a father, and an inability to adjust to the American speech patterns.
Heck yeah! Let’s get all types of accents out there.
I feel like a fun place to start might be with something as simple as how you’d greet your close friends. And that has pretty easy potential for collab material.
Great idea! (Arkansas girl, here)
I’ll have you know that folks in Massachusetts know how to pronounce Worcester, though I was just on the phone with a Texan and his pronunciation was cursed.
But don’t y’all also pronounce Norfolk like “noor-folk” instead of “nor-fuk” the way it should be?
Or is that Virginians?
