From babies to accents

Oh no! No more baby Carlos!

We are devastated of course. But the seeds of our salvation, and growing a fine plant that will comfort and unite us under its majestic leaves, were contained in the Funky Friday vote choices - accents!

What's your favourite English speaking accent? My favourite is a whiney, high-pitched brand of Esturay English (spoken in South East England). I don't why I love it so much! I could listen to it all day, especially when it sings Queen's "We are the Champions" in the shower, like it did this morning.

Come on, you must have a favourite! Scottish, Welsh, Americain, Texan? Or maybe you like the sound of your accent when you speak English. I'm sure it couldn't be weirder than the young Irish gentleman below.

So, until next time, I wish you and your accent a pleasant month, heavy on getting your point accross, and light on being mocked for sounding like a seasick Darlek. Which leads us nicely to my incomprehensible friend.

G'day everybody!

So far, my favorite English accent surely is the Australian one, mate. You know, the Aussies have such a peculiar way of speaking that it really mesmerizes my heart and makes me want to pack my bags and head straight for Down Under.

And, well, as for my own accent, I'm afraid I may sound a bit like this football coach here when I try to speak in English:

Yeah, mate! You don't have much choice in the matter... But I have to agree that the Scottish accent is awesome all the same. It reminds me of the sexy, I mean, sweet voice of Moira MacDonald and her rather sarcastic - and yet funny - behaviour :)

I think speaking a language is as important as writing it, or in whatever you do, do your best. Although it may take time to perfect speaking English, it is best to try it without the "bahala na" way of thinking.

I think everyone wants to ensure that they present their best work at all times. This is so whether someone is writing in English or another language.
