    Search for "accent tag" on YouTube. I am trying to find the one I originally saw a couple of weeks back, that had a compilation of girls from nearly all English-speaking countries, speaking a defined list of words, and also answering a short list of questions (designed to show how the vocabulary changes according to country, not just the pronunciation). My youngest had a blast! And, finally, thanks to accent tag, after months of my midwestern-raised youngest trying to get the remnants of Texas out of MY voice, I could show her where my vocab/pronunciation idiosyncrasies originate!

    My favorites were Cockney and Jamaican. My First loved the Scottish.

    What do you call a gal who has a German for a mother, a born and bred Jersey boy for a father, spent grades 1 thru 5 in Texas, grades 6 through 12 in Ohio, the next 8 years working in Germany next to a Scot (Glasgow), and then went back to Jersey and had her four kids there, only to bring her Jersey broads to Appalachian Ohio??

    If you know, tell me, because damned if I do! My kids play in the crick wearing wellies, and when they get thirsty, they sometimes drink a soda...

    jumping in (sorry, Canio) to enquire of Gwamma - where in NZ does the really strong/nasally/South African/posh English accent come from? I've now met two Kiwi lasses with it, but know LOADS of other Kiwis with a much more Aussie (to my ear) sounding accent. Is it a North-South divide thing, eh? (see what I did there with the 'eh'?

    Also, the new avatar is awesome sauce.

    No need to apologize. Jump in all you like
    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    thanx BG, and thank you Canio for allowing us to digress yet again in amoungst it all.................. different accent ???? hhhhhhhhmmmmmmmmmm.............. you can often tell people who come from way down south - Gore etc..... they tend to roll their rrrrs.
    Most cities have an upmarket area, where you can find some very posh speakers, not always - but the bulk of us just talk like Kiwis. I actually don't think that we sound like Aussis, but often overseas we are mistaken for Aussi's.
    We do have alot of South Africans/ English and Scottish peopple who have settled here, so maybe some of us enunciate our words a little better than others of us????
