The LA one seemed more normal to me, even though I`m in Florida. XD
im so shocked i cant believe my ears. noone can ever do our accent, ever i swear to god.
as you can tell im still really shocked
knowing the difference between dialects and accents is my biggest pet peeve-
but where is she originally from?
she hit the california one so well, but she really could work on the texas one.
btw, her Belfast accent sounded more like a Dublin accent, and her Dublin accent sounded like a stereotypical country accent
Her Texas accent was actually not a great Texas accent, but could probably pass as an Apalachian/Tennessee type.
And that "South Carolina" accent hasn`t existed since 1870 or so in Georgia. (No Southerner actually sounds like "Gone with the Wind." Promise. That accent was an affectation among Southern "nobility" in an attempt to create their own upper class dialect. It was a very localized phenomenon - fad even - that passed very quickly after the Civil War.)
Still though. Pretty neat post, I thought.
CAN YOU NOT SEE THAT SHE IS HOT!?
The first sydney one was spot on though the second one is a nasty stereotype.
We dont wear cork hats "cobba"
this leaves one conclusion: they were all off. i still give her credit. i couldn`t tell what her natural accent was, and it is very hard to perfect an accent without being emersed in the culture for a long time.
...and why does everyone think an Irish accent is hard to do?!? Just get pissed drunk and it comes out naturally. FANCYLAD knows what I`m talking about.
The Scottish one was right on. "We`re the lowest of the low. We`re even ruled by wankers. We`re the pooe of Europe." I like it when people recognize their place in the world... if only Canada would take a hint. I can`t wait for NAFTA to be dropped.
You have to admit though, its still pretty talented.
Sounds like she`s from Seattle, it seems the most natural. Her teeth are hyptnotizing.
it got creepy tho
Caribbean accents would have been interesting to hear.
My father is from Newfieland (Newfoundland) and my grandparents (and other relatives) all speak like that (her Canadian accent) even though they`ve been living in Ontario for 40 years.
and to the person who said, `what, there`s more than one accent in England? Really?`
you are a tw*t
Her Toronto Accent is WAAAAYYY off. it sounds more like a Newfoundland accent (East coast of Canada)
Thats like her doing a Boston accent and saying shes from Kentucky.... lol but ovearll didnt seem to bad. loved the Brooklyn one.
To give a more fair estimation of her talent, I`d want to hear more than one line for each accent.
And FYI, she`s a native Australian.
Also--wow, England has more than one accent?! Ireland, Scotland, etc., have different accents of course, but there are multiple English ones? Neat.
I have trouble when I`m speaking with people who have very noticeable English-language accents. I`ve got a good ear for them, and I accidentally start to mimic the way they speak. Does anyone else here do that? I used to get made fun of in school because I have family in New Jersey and when I`d go back home to New Hampshire after visiting them I`d have a pretty heavy NJ accent that would take a little while to shake off. People also seem to have a hard time telling where I must be from because of this habit. I can`t for the life of me speak with a Texan accent though.
And a poor job it was. In genereal, she did a pretty decent job on them. But she needs a LOT of work on the American accents. The Texan accent is a very difficult accent to copy. Even I haven`t mastered it eventhough I lived on the Texan border for ten years and my brother is in Dallas. Yet, it is the most widely attempted, especially by Britons.
"The Brooklyn accent was all wrong. Shoulda said Yo! I`m from Brooklyn duog!!"
And people constantly get Brooklyn and Jersey accents confused. Plus she didn`t wave her hands enough.
Decent job, but needs more practice.
The London ones were pooor and over exaggerated - my family are from London and I don`t know anyone who speaks like that anymore. I would have been impressed if she had managed a decent Geordie, Scouse or Brum accent. Then I would have liked it :D
I loved the trans-atlantic 1945 one (or whatever)
so that`s why all the actresses in old movies sound the same XD
Pretty awesome, though.
And she flubbed the WHOLE Texas accent. Because if she were to say "I was born in Texas" in a Texas accent, it would sound like this: "I was born in the great state of Texas."
BUT it was cool to see how many ways you can speak English and people still understand you :)
She was pretty good. Weird hearing all those different accents, the only one that sounded normal to me was the Seattle one since I live around there.
But I have to admit, she`s good enough that I don`t really know where she really is originally from. She`s got a very non-nationality-specific face.
