Child please. I can't understand you half of the time when we're on the phone. Your accent is worse than any Indian's. It's like needing subtitles to watch Mayberry R.F.D..

I just got off the phone with Jeff and have to say that at no time did I need subtitles..... of course, I attribute my ability to understand him to watching a weekend long marathon of Honey Boo Boo....  but, nevertheless, subtitles were not needed and I reckon that I won't need them.... I have always loveded Jeff's accent very much.

Scares me too Jeff as you're one I always understand the first time and don't need you to repeat.  Maybe it's cause we don't speak with "airs"?   :o

2) did you hear about the replacement for Jersey Shore that is being filmed in West Virginia? It's called Buck Wild:

I think I'll enjoy that show.  Most of the things performed were things we did growing up.  We made our own fun and most of us survived.   ;D

We "made my own fun" growing up too but it consisted of playing croquet and Triple Yahtzee, not whatever it was those fine folks were doing in that video.

UM...made fun can't be purchased.  Creating a slip n slide in the mud on the back hill that puts you in the Ohio River...priceless.  Fighting to get back to shore and only having to walk a mile to do again, even better.

Jeff, I can understand you.  Of course this could be because I've lived in Alabama and got used to the accent. 

At work, one of the clients is from Mississippi.  Hardly anyone can understand him, so I'm the translator.

I've always found it interesting that British and Irish singers sound so much like Americans, but when they speak, you can barely understand many of them.  Even the ones you can understand, the thick accent is there.  They sing in a U.S. dialect to appeal to Americans?

Thats largely because everyone loses a major chunk of their real accent when singing. Every accent has a unique inflection, rhythm and tonal quality. And this goes awry in adjusting to the tune or music of the song.

Try singing along to Adele or Coldplay and youd sound pretty much like them. In everyday speech most North Americans, unlike most English (there are exceptions though), have rhotic accents- i.e. you distinctly pronounce the r sound in words ending with r such as car, far, star, lover etc, whereas most English would say ca-ah, fa-ah, lov-eh, and would not usually pronounce the r where it falls at the end of the word and is preceded by a vowel. When singing this major difference between the accents is not noticeable as many Americans singers would be forced to pronounce the r as the English pronounce it (or rather dont pronounce it) or vice versa, depending on the music piece. The difference between accents is much more apparent in rap.
