Thanks that nice lover. Hi Sarah-Lucy

I knew there are alot of accents here in the Uk and you can always tell as I have someone from hull in my college class and he sounds different. But I have got used to his now so I don't really tell anymore.

That would be so different if Shannen had an english accent as I would think it sounds like. What she sounds like on Charmed where you carn't tell she has an accent.

I would have to have someone tell me what an english accent sounds like to someone who speaks with an american accent. I probably sound like other people's and they would have to listen hard so they could make out what I was saying. As I have heard from some accents its hard to tell what people are saying. Image

From what I've heard the Brummie accent is impossible to understand. But for most non native English speakers the British accent is harder to understand because it emphasizes the words more, whilst the Americans usually swallow their letters. Thing is that in those countries, most shows on TV are American so they can get that accent from a very young age, unlike the British one. Most lingusutic researches say that people can get and immitate lanaguages and accents easily until the age of 12, so when the American shows are what you hear by that age, it's the training your mind gets. I think telling you what a British accent sounds like is incredibly difficult, it's something you hear. And you can call me Shul Image.

Thats interesting to know.

Maybe Shannen couldn't understand me very well as I had to repeat some things. Maybe its my english accent.

I had to say things louder too as I think I have a deep voice which probably makes it worse.

lover wrote:Don't get me started, I could talk about accents for days! Image American accents are weird in real life- I have trouble getting them on the phone, but they're much easier to understand face to face. I like it but it's not my favourite.

I'm not sure- the world is pretty divided to those who love British accent and think it's the most amazing thing in the world, and people who want to cry listening to it. However, both groups don't get a word you guys say, unless they're native English speakers Image. Shannen looks like she'd like a British accent, I mean seriously, didn't you want to hug Rex just because of his fabulous accent? British accent and spanish langauge (separately!) are both the best things in the world.

Even when you're used to yours, you can always listen to your accent in a way, especially in a society that's so famous for its different dialects.

By the way- each time I see your name it makes me smile- it reminds me of Shell Dockley!

i had a terrible time talking to this american on the phone with regards to my holiday, she was from the south and talked so fast, my goodness LOL. oh of course she couldnt understand my broad accent but i wasnt talking at 100 miles an hour. Image

shell, where are you from since we are talking about accents?.

i have a broad scottish east coast accent. Image

Yeh you could say that.

The home of Sherwood Forest and another 2 which I think are a part of Sherwood forest.

Rufford Park and Columber Park are a part of Sherwood Forest to I think. They are just split now because of the main roads.

Rufford Park and Columber Park arn't that far apart from each other. I think they are on the same stretch of road. Image
