Gerbear; Put someone from texas next to someone from Newfoundland, and thats about the same degree of difference that the Australian accent has from any of the English accents. English people can pick an Aussie accent from a mile away (although occasionally mix aussie up with kiwi, as Australians can with an English accent. Americans, generally, have great trouble with this for some weird reason. I can understand all english accents, no matter how broad, except for geordie, and occasionally scouse if its really heavy and spoken too fast. I have no trouble understanding brouge, but can only get the gist if people are speaking doric.
