How "foreign" for lack of a better term do english people sound to americans? I always assumed the answer was not particularly because americans don't sound very "foreign" to me, but maybe that's just because I hear them a lot

111 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-9530 17:57

We hear you guys less than you hear us I imagine.

The biggest difference I can tell is you pronounce 80 as ay-tee and we pronounce it AD.

I once heard a British person say fourteen, and I couldn't tell if they said fourteen or forty, because the first syllable is pronounced exactly the same in that accent, with the only difference being the N at the end. In America, fourteen is pronounced with a strong t, and forty is pronounced with a strong d.

The t/d is a fairly consistent difference between the accents, not getting into any of the more complex and subtle differences.

That said, some of our own accents are probably exotic to others. The accent the world is most familiar with is our midwest accent because it is fairly bland and neutral. But some southern accents like the new orleans accent or even some northern accents like the Minnesota accent probably sound completely novel to outsiders.

112 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-9530 18:14

>that accent

There are a lot of accents across the British Isles, rather than a "British accent"

English people sound very foreign to me, and I'm Welsh...

113 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-9530 18:21

Just like most people think of the Midwest accent as 'the American accent' I was simplifying based on the London accent and whatever those people on the BBC speak

>>110 Middlin' foreign, where extremely foreign while still speaking English would be South African, and barely foreign would be rural Canadian. Your various regional accents have interesting musical qualities too.

115 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-9531 05:53

The accent I heard when I was in London for a month was distinct for it's lack of 't' (the term "water bottle" amused them). The "British accent" that melts the panties off over here is usually either RP/"posh"/"cut-glass"/"BBC", or in some cases a really cleaned up Yorkshire. As far as English-from-England goes, Americans don't get media exposure to much besides those three (there's West Country, but it's presented as pirates or hobbits so most wouldn't be able to place it correctly).

116 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-9531 09:41

118 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-9531 10:25

The enunciation is completely different, all across the UK. FOURty vs fourTEEN.
The real biggest difference: the American R is one of the weirdest sounds in the world. It's a complete giveaway as they often can't hide it, and it's obvious when an ESL person has learnt English from an American.

Nice trips btw

>>118 I found that maddening in grade school Spanish and Japanese classes. Yeah, fine, trying to contort your tongue posture for new sounds can be difficult, but some fuckers didn't even feel the need to try for four years.

Actually drives me a little nuts; most references seem to conceive of "General American" (not a real thing, just imagine all media personalities jumped in a blender) "er" as schwa-r, but what I've heard my entire life is much more like r being treated as a vowel.

Also, a lot of people aren't aware that some of us are going around using "bunched" postalveolar approximant r and some of us are using retroflex r (well, it's really a continuum...) because the difference is basically inaudible. Which shouldn't be a problem except there are many people who are supposed to know better who don't.

Hey asshole, the American R comes from your country. Like many things British criticize Americans for, this is one of those things we inherited from you and then one day you all collectively decided you were too good for it. Just like how we got the word soccer from you.

That's right. The entire rest of the English-speaking world held a committee meeting one day in the 19th century and collectively decided to stop R-ing. Webster got mad that America wasn't invited and dedicated the rest of his life to trashing his country's dialect in protest.

>>135 Raided with one for a year, actually (though, to be fair, his enunciation was not). Reminds me, maybe the least understandable guy I've gamed with was 10 years ago, a poor bastard in a different guild whose native language was Gaelic. He wasn't properly educated in English for some reason; meant he basically had nobody to talk to online and everything he said made you think you had a stroke.

Here in the Old Dominion we've got a couple of (rare) accents that exhibit some similar vowels to some northern "tongues" despite them being completely unrelated. And the preeminence of regional slang tends to be played up a bit, unless you work in an old industry. What I'd consider a dialect by other language's standards is Scots.

Though, I don't consider myself good at hearing through accents, mind you; I consider myself poor at hearing spoken communication in general so it equalizes somewhat.

Scots is a forced meme. AAVE has more grammatical departures from Standard English than Scots does and nobody considers that a separate language.

155 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-9533 23:11

>>154 Not sure what AAVE is but Scots isn't just "grammatical departures from Standard English", maybe you're thinking of Scottish English.

157 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-9534 01:31

I know what it is, I know what your arguments are for calling it a separate language. The main argument is that it's a dialect of Middle English that historically evolved separately from Standard English. Despite this claim of linguistic isolation, Scots shares most of the convergences that happened between Middle and Modern English, and it's also arguable that Scots was never fully isolated from Standard English to begin with. After all, you guys share an island.

You're just a dialect of English that says "wee bairns" and pronounces the gh in daughter, as far as I'm concerned. I once listened to a professor give a 30 minute lecture in Scots and I thought it was a total joke that he was acting like he was speaking a different language.

158 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-9534 08:07

>>157 I would say the main argument is that it's how people talk in Scotland and none of that historical posturing (nice wikipedia skills). I don't know, you say you what it is and what the arguments are, but you seem to be making quite shallow observations about it. Do you think similarly about Norwegian compared to Danish, or other similar languages born from shared roots?

(I'm Welsh btw but my wife is Scottish)

159 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-9534 08:16

Maybe this is bait for a language game, I never understood the issue people have with this.
Ok, plenty of people tend to overuse the term "literally" when the factual meaning of their full sentence is actually "figuratively" - however, people rarely seem to consider the (obvious) fact that "literally" is used as hyperbole for additional emphasis. It's usually clear from the context that the writer still intends the non-literal meaning to be understood. In fact, it's probably extremely unlikely that someone uses the term "literally" incorrectly, but rather it's much more likely that they deliberately use it subversively to exaggerate their statement.

The use of the term "figuratively" in the sense of:
"They're figuratively on fire."
Only serves to belittle the main premise of the statement. It's like saying "They're on fire, but not really haha it's just an expression", drawing attention away from the metaphor/simile/idk, the opposite of exaggeration. Why would teenage girls want to apply such a tone to their words? surely, they would be better off just saying "They're on fire" (which is easier to say than "They're literally on fire", anyway).

It's not like sentences have to make absolute factual sense, we can mix and mash metaphors and warp meanings without breaking understanding, it's part of the joy of speech. It's why we can stay stuff like "This sentence is false" or "I have no words". Meaning is greater than simple definitions.

Even if you disagree with that, keep in mind that there is no correct definition of a word. Language is constantly evolving, with plenty of definitions inverting over time as popular "mis-usage" becomes standard usage. And 'literally' has been used as a dramatic intensifier for centuries; see any of the number of examples available online that I'm too lazy to add here.

Anyway, what that means for you, >>149, is that you might be autistic.

161 Name: vc: cowghing : 1993-09-9534 11:56

Well, you see, >>160,

>It's not like sentences have to make absolute factual sense
>there is no correct definition of a word

Are things not everyone, or even many people, agree with. Really, most people are seeking shared values, but will move heaven and earth to avoid changing their own. Same goes with the use of language. Has it ever struck you that phrases like:

> I never understood the issue people have with this.

can come across as disingenuous? It seems to me you totally do understand. But the case you have made is less about not understanding ad more about not caring. It's your prerogative to not care, mind you. To mix and "mash" as you say, can be quite alright. To not care about shit that doesn't matter to you is an economic necessity; we only get so much time in this life. But deviating from established expressions makes a lot of people [sic].

There has long been a bit of a culture war going on between the importance objective and subjective values have, and language has long been one of the ways people posture themselves on this battlefield. Although I state it as a dichotomy, it is not. There are a great many people who prize objective truth who do not speak sincerely, and there are a great many sincere speakers who can't admit that what comes up must come down simply because they saw an exception. Boggles me greatly, being someone who values both objectivity and sincerity, but it seems to be the case.

162 Name: thus spoke >>160 : 1993-09-9534 15:36

Rather than understanding or caring, my only claim is that I do not understand why people care, though perhaps I should've chosen my words better given the discussion topic. And I hate to quote, but:

> deviating from established expressions makes a lot of people [sic].

What a wonderful use of language!!!!

>the main argument is that it's how people talk in Scotland
And it's no different than Scottish English at all, how is that an argument? why is American not its own language but Scots is?

My main source of Scots is the novel trainspotting that I read four years ago, written entirely in Scots, which is terrible by the way. It's just poorly spelled English. There is not one construction unique to Scots in that whole terrible book. Shouldn't be called a different language. Anyway, I don't know why you don't believe that somebody else could possibly know what Scots is and assume that they must be using Wikipedia.

Seriously, if you're gonna call Scots a language I'm calling AAVE a separate language from now on.

164 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-9534 19:26

Also, the insistence that "literally" should mean "an event that happened in reality" is itself a figurative usage of the word that literally means "pertaining to literature"

165 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-9534 20:18

isn't that "literary", though? not trying to be a dick or anything, actual question.

166 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-9534 20:42

They share the same root, but have different connotations (in part due to the different life that "literal" has taken on). Literary is more often used to refer to literature, literal is more often used to refer the individual wordings within literature.

The usage of literal meaning "straight forward/non-figurative/down to earth/etc." comes from the notion of interpreting a text "by the book" (i.e only using what is written), a "literal interpretation".

The word literal has left the domain of literature a long time ago. When most people mean "factual/non-hyperbole" they are taking this meaning of the word and extending its usage to oral speech, movies (making it possible to say "that scene wasn't meant to be taken 'literally'").

They are literally using the word figuratively.

Also, >>161 is an asshole.

Imagine an actual boomer on dqn. Unless it's the one putting things in the 'things from other places' thread where I can't tell whether it's endorsement or ridicule

I don't want to see what the cursed boomer shit of my own generation will look like, but I'm concerned, because I believe I'm seeing its precursors every day now.

let's bend this horseshoe into a loop

some fauxetic nonsense about "2nd person" in a video game

194 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-9539 11:29

There was a 2nd-person view cheat in Tekken 2!

Realized all too late that the reason it felt like my mother was snitching on me to the doctor with potentially humiliating details was precisely because she was trying to humiliate me.

I have such a brilliant mood today, and I don't know why. I feel like my blood's effervescent it's so weird.

There is a theory in my head that FLOSS desktops, with some modifiability in theory and the whole world open in terms of potential, could've been a starting point of a sort of UI renaissance despite all their other flaws. Like who cares if it's shit as long as there's experimentation. Being someone who translates as a hobby, I'm specifically thinking of like integrated dictionaries and hot-swappable locales.

Practical reality, of course, begs to differ. Nobody will adopt your idea and UI coding is hell on earth, apparently.

Being sophisticated doesn't just mean knowing synonyms...

199 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-9540 22:46

This is my inflection point.
