  Can any of you say 'seven' the English way?
Try not to say 'sivn' and see how silly you sound.

I remember seeing a film called "Sweet Sixteen" around 10 years ago that had sub-titles. I was suitably huffy about it but the worst of it was I was too busy reading the sub-titles I couldn't keep track of the movie.

The amount of times the "F" word was used was unbelievable but the movie was quite educational and I think was successful. I think it was set in Greenock but could be wrong.

  Me to Mr Melody: How many are there in that packet?

Mr Melody to me: There are two mini.

Me to Mr Melody: No that doesn't look like too many to me.

Sad but true.

On arrival in Christchurch, NZ, in 1963, I had a few problems being understood. I was employed in the Labour Department and as I had to spend some time on the telephone switchboard, I had to learn very quickly to speak slower due to a few difficult calls! I recall one day I met two girls I knew slightly and after chatting for a couple of minutes one said to the other "what did she say?". Now that really riled me.

Many years later, working at Lincoln University as a Director's Secretary, I was favourably compared to another secretary, who funnily enough came from Edinburgh and prided herself on having been a teacher in elocution!

Occasionally I have been a bit naughty if someone comments that I've never lost my accent - I reply that I haven't found a better one yet.


Brilliant post SKL there is no better accent. smile.gif
