How many here live in other countries other than USA?

Got something on your mind? Get it off your chest! Talk about anything here...well almost anything.

How many here live in other countries other than USA?

Postby dreamyskies » Wed Jun 06, 2018 2:46 am

Just wondering.

Don't have to say what other countries if you don't want to say. Yes Or USA works too.

I do, so yes.

Thanks, Amalthea and MissWong.

Guess posters are shy even vaguely saying what country they reside but lots of websites give you little flags that you can show, same as genders you can show on your profile. I forgot to say I am part of the European Union :)

Was wondering how many different countries are represented on this website.

I think the majority of posters on this website are from the USA, dreamyskies. At least majority in the OT sections( not dream forums ones).

I need to ask a kiwi to say it!
I get told by brits that I sound kiwi or Australian and I get told by kiwis I sound like the queen :shock:
I also talk super slow and will change the way I say words depending on what I’m hearing around me.

The Queen's English? :lol: That's quite the slap from your fellow Kiwis. Americans generally think I sound British while the British think I'm German, so I'm in a similar predicament.

I also talk super slow and will change the way I say words depending on what I’m hearing around me.
I speak fast, but otherwise I adapt to my setting in a similar fashion. It has gotten to the point where I have "forgotten" my original accent and just speak a kind of jumbled blur.

That's a compliment, though. And it could be tied to the Slavic pronunciation of "i" when speaking English.

I'm sure she'd be berated for speaking the Queen's English as well, and that distinctive pitch almost makes her sound Sowf Efriken. But I have made that mistake before, in Amsterdam of all places, confusing a Kiwi for an Afrikaner.

One thing, though. If chur is originally cheers, distorted by Maori and local slang, then isn't there a case to be made for fush n chups? :P

Give us a recording as well :D so you think I sound kiwi? Or more south africain? I have had south africain before mentioned.

That’s how I feel, a jumbled blur, I have no idea what my accent is but I sound Slavic with my “I”s?

Lol, Chur probably did come from cheers, I need to pay attention to how maoris say it, there’s alaways been a Pakeha way and a Maori way of saying things in NZ
But yeah give us a recording as well :D

I grew up in one part but had to move to get a job I wanted in another part. It would make me feel lonelier if I didn't have a lot of relatives and friends living here too, and after my dad passed I wanted to move, have a change. It is nice you can visit every few years.

Yes, but, no need to be jealous. I am sure where you live is wonderful as well. I think otherworlds is from England too.

My state has its problems but its okay I guess. I think I would be content living in your part of the world though compared to here .. for various reasons.

Tal & aussie_musician are also from Australia.
Operatormike, TheCatWhisperer & Brookswindow are from the USA too, so was puppyjill.

I read the hint you gave, Clementine and I had to look it up and I have never even visited where you live before but I think I would have the best time spending two weeks there.

You sound more Sowf Efriken, to be honest. It's hard to explain, but your speech is direct and matter-of-fact. With Kiwis, I think of Breet (Bret) and Juhmine (Jemaine) from Flight of the Concords and their atonal, stumpy sentences, which are all-too-often ended with an "eh."

That’s how I feel, a jumbled blur, I have no idea what my accent is but I sound Slavic with my “I”s?
In retrospect, I'll have to stick with Afrikaner. I think those who spot a Slavic "i" in your speech simply haven't met the many international variations of English.

Lol, Chur probably did come from cheers, I need to pay attention to how maoris say it, there’s alaways been a Pakeha way and a Maori way of saying things in NZ
The Pakeha and Maori overtures go well beyond my reach. You'd might as well be referencing fantasy worlds with artificial languages. The Kiwi pronunciation "uh" (ə) is the result of a gliding vowel, which is explored on Wikipedia:
The difference in frontness and closeness of the KIT vowel ({ɪ̈ ~ ə} in New Zealand, {i} in Australia) has led to a long-running joke between Australians and New Zealanders whereby Australians accuse New Zealanders of saying "fush and chups" for fish and chips and in turn New Zealanders accuse Australians of saying "feesh and cheeps" in light of Australia's own KIT vowel shift.
But your pronunciation was clearly ɪ and not ə.

But yeah give us a recording as well :D
I should record a few lines and perhaps read something formal to catch me off guard. I'll take requests from available books or manuscripts.

Thanks all. I will look up the state nickname then, I don't click online links so I can't hear your voice link, Nostalgic, sorry. Aussie_Musician I think she was being thoughtful mentioning you and others so I would know where others who never posted in here are from. Can not tell if you are trying to be funny, or rude, but also your profile says where you are from so you don't want people to guess either. ;) Texas is a huge American state, @raymond123, is it horribly hot in the summers? Do you see lots of cattle around?
