quote:I fail to see how "american" can be generalized into its own accent. Do you have a microphone on your computer? I'd just like to see you TRY to emulate THE American accent. Within the space of two cities, one will hear two uniquely distinct accents. Take New York and Boston: Neither are particularilly distanced from the other, but both have radically different accents. My point is thus; if you feel like bashing american accents, then at least specify which ones in particular irritate you. (I know for a fact that most midwesterners don't butcher their D's *or* their T's. Sorry.)
PS- "mines"? It is reprehensible to no small degree* to butcher the language like that in a lingual discussion. -_-
(*Motrax, take note- "small degree" fares better in a conversation than "little bit" unless the latter is required by virtue of avoiding redundancy.)
We're all amazed but not amused
By all the things that you said you'd do.
You're much concerned but not involved by
Decisions that are made by you
But we are sick and tired of hearing your song,
Telling us how you are going to change right from wrong,
'Cause if you really want to hear our views,
You haven't done nothin'.

And for your information, at least most of us don't eat our Rs and shorten all of our As. Very unsexy.
