    This is what I heard on the first podcast "Ano Panto da Canto". By fact, that's what Geoff said.

    Barb isn't wrong about the Canadian accent on the east coast being thick as fuck, my first year of university I moved to Quebec from Nova Scotia and legitimately had a prof in a lab stop and tell me (not ask me) I was from Nova Scotia. As a first year it was sort of terrifying. simmons-32.png

    i actually live in the same village as ringo, and have seen him a couple of times walking down the street. hes quite grumpy.

    The thing john lennon said about ringo was a joke, Americans seem to take British humour literal sometimes. And he said that like 50 years ago, clearly a joke as they were young lads at time. Ringo is one of the top 5 drummers of all time. don't know anyone who "shits" on ringo. I'ts always done as a joke. Sorry for my english, I'm Australian.

    Some accents have died because of TV. The traditional plantation accent is pretty much gone now

    I've been in Scotland my whole life and if I'm in England they can tell but here, everybody thinks I'm American. I think I picked it up from FRIENDS which I watched religiously as a kid. Whenever I meet someone new, most of the time I tell them my dad is from Jersey (which is a lie).

    I don't believe in a "Canadian" accent. Yeah,some words are a bit different, but not enough for me to consider it an accent. Americans I play games with online don't realize I'm Canadian until I tell them and I don;t hear any difference in how they speak.

      There's an accent, but it's pretty much indistinguishable from the usual American accent until it gets really thick. Basically you can't hear it until it's so heavy as to sound like a mockery or parody of what someone thinks a Canadian accent is

    They do go away to some extent. After going to Norway I was surprised because everyone who was under 25 spoke perfect american english with little to no Norwegian accent. Though part of accents just come from the sounds being carried from their native language, which is where chinglish (chinese english) and jinglish (japanese english) comes from. If you try to speak chinese even with a teacher who spoke it perfectly you would not be able to pronunciate the words perfectly because of the carryover from your native language of english.

    I'm English, lived in the same town all my life, but I watched a lot of American television as a kid and now I find it really easy to pick up other people's accents. Now I'm at uni over 50% of our students are foreign, so when I tell people I'm British they're often surprised - most commonly they think I'm American, Italian or German!

    I'm American who grew up in the south but never picked up the southern accent, but one time I watched a lot of Yogscast over a weekend and woke up Monday with an English accent that I couldn't get rid of for a couple days.

    The reason that accents go away for the most part in music is because stretching out words stops habits people have when speaking, which make accents happen. That's why songs that are spoken or really fast are affected by accents, because words aren't stretched out.

    Well speaking of accents.Because I follow a lot of people from the UK and a lot of people from America on the internet, my English is really mixed. Some words sound British and some are Americanized. The fact that I'm from a country where English isn't the first language messes me up a lot.

    I recall learning in Psych that when it comes to language affecting babies, that being exposed to a language wouldn't stick in the multilingual babbling --> monolinguistic babbling stage, unless the baby was interacting with an actual person interacting with them as they spoke. If you put a baby in front of a tv for the same period of time, speaking a different language, it wouldn't have the same effect. There needs to be some kind of physical presence/interactivity, it would seem, for the language to register as meaningful information, and for the brain to pick it up. That being said, on the subject of accents and dialects, I'm sure that within that, there is an affect both in word choice and inflection based on locality of media consumption.

    That conversation about singing only being in American accents is so awful to listen to. They've clearly never heard of Oasis or the Arctic Monkeys. Hate this urban myth so much.

    • lolohannah FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      Of course they've heard of Oasis, and Gavin will definitely know the Arctic Monkeys. They were generalising out of the thousands of Non-American singers/bands that do sound American. Besides, Oasis are pretty much the pinnacle of BritPop, a whole genre of music about British bands singing in their regional accents, they don't exactly fit the mould of general pop music.

    • curtis915 FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      The reasons they all sound American when they sing is because that's what sells and that's what they grow up listening to. Even Led Zeppelin admitted to singing with more of an American cadence to be more successful. The way they talked about it on the podcast made it seem that they thought it completely natural to sing with an American accent regardless of where your from.

    I never knew how or where the Ringo Starr bash started but famous drummers like Dave Grohl share their opinion about Him and it's all good when it comes to actual technic and musical contribution:

    https://youtu.be/wJTjjAXDZSY
    As per Lennon and Paul saying Ringo is not even the best drummer in the band fans know The Beatles were known for never caring or taking the media serious and specifically press-conferences were a constant mockery given out BS answers quite an entertaining show like anything else they would do, it's hard to believe that particular answer was serious.

    I've never really had issues with accents in understanding them. I've watched a lot of English television and films so maybe that is why, but even thinking back to my first time watching I don't remember having difficulty with understanding them.

    If anything I love hearing just how different accents can be. Sometimes writers can have a very specific diction and prose to how they write that is just satisfying to read and in a weird way, I think listening to how different certain accents sound can be satisfying to listen to.

    Gus, accents aren't picked up from the media people consume, its picked up from talking with those in your community. Local accents exist because the communities spend more time bouncing their words, and therefore accent, off one another than with the greater populace. Bostonians talk amongst themselves more than they talk with New Yorkers and vice-versa, leading to the two groups having different accents. Accents are essentially echochambers for people living in close proximity or in far flung places.
