Do british people have accents?
Everyone has some kind of accent.
It depends on your personal opinion. Some people do think so.
No, they don't even have a Portuguese accent but a Brazilian one.
Americans do have accents, British people do have accents. When one has a different way of speaking than another then it is noticed. When a British person hears an American person speaking, the American does have an accent to the Brit. AnswerEveryone has an accent! That's how British people know that you are Americans, and how you know that they are British! Strange question!!
Well what nationality are you? do you think in your accent? If so, you've already answered your own question. +++ :-) Not just accent - local dialect, too!
Some do, some don't it's their opinion.I'm Britsh, i love the Amerian accent, it's so cool.
No. We go around using our own accents, I personally go around with an North Eastern English accent
It's not just British, most people seem to lose accent when they sing.
There is actually no such thing as a British accent. There is an English accent, a Scottish accent, an Irish accent, or a Welsh accent. These are generally spoken within their own countries (English in England, Scottish in Scotland, etc.). However, people all over the world may have a breed of a British accent because either they are immigrants themselves or they picked it up from their family.
No. From experience.
Yes The British accent is very distinctiveFurtherThe above should perhaps read, British accents are distinctive. There are great many of them, more than anywhere else in the English-speaking world, as you'd expect since "England" is where English originated, and English is the everyday language for most of the rest of the British Isles, including the Republic of Ireland.
Sure do, bruddah!
Yes, they have American accents.
some people say that it is because they are from a different country or place, They only know to speak their own language. So it is hard for them to speak the right way.
we're born making baby noises that resemble the sounds around us, when we start to make longer sounds that resemble words and also resemble details of pronunciation that we've heard and the accent begins.
1. Hugh Laurie ( Plays on House )2. Daniel Radcliffe (Plays ithe main protagonist Harry Potter in the Harry Potter films)3. Tom Felton ( Plays Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter films)4. Calem Blue ( Plays Major/General Zod in Smallville)5. Emma Watson ( Plays Hermonie Granger in the Harry Potter films)6. Ralph Fiennes ( Plays the main antagonist Voldemort in the Harry Potter films)These are, of course, a few suggestions fill free to post your… Read More
Imagine a group of people who live together and speak the same way. Any change in the way they speak (their dialect) will either pass to the whole community, or drop out of usage. Imagine some of those people move elsewhere and start their own community. Each group may develop different slang and dialects that spread through their own communities, but not to the other one. Two different dialects have been born. This is why… Read More
If you think for example 200 years or more ago , there were no communication aids like radio or telephone , no-one travelled much unless they really needed to , and so there were many variations in language . In the same country people from one village or town or tribe , could possibly live their whole lives and never visit the ajoining town . Different expressions developed and wide variations in slang existed across… Read More
People from different area's of the United States can have different accents. So, essentially, if you're not from Minnesota, you may think that someone from that state has an accent.
Accents are simply variations on pronunciation of people who basically speak the same language, and (usually) can understand each other. And everyone has an accent to somebody's ears. What sounds like perfectly normal speech to a person from one area will sound a little unusual to people from another area.
I am from Utah. And we don't say our ts for example we say moun'n instead of mountain and brigt'n and layt'n instead of brightn and layton. We say famlee instead of family. And like we say nothin or nut'n is stead of nothing. we don't say the full -ing just mainly the -in part
Yes, they do. Geographically speaking, it seems as though every region has a distinct dialect. Sherlock Holmes (yes, a fictional character) was quite the parlor entertainer with his ability to pinpoint people's place of origin by their speech patterns.
Of course. There are certain languages that make a person more adequate to do other languages accents but yes they can. Take the example of Hugh Laurie. He is the actor that plays Dr. House in the homonym show. He's British. You can also check his British accent in the Stuart Little movies. He plays the father. It's hard but possible.
Yes, but they are usually as unconvincing as Americans trying to do British accents.
According to a 2006 study by the Canine Behaviour Centre in Cumbria, dogs do exhibit regional accents in their barks and growls. The study found that a dog raised in Liverpool will have higher pitched growls that are thought to be a result of mimicking the human accent of the region which is also of a higher pitch.
Yes, as there are people everywhere that immitate countrys accents and make fun of them. Answer The British have a long history of poking fun at almost everything. For an allegedly pompous race they have a remarkable sense of humour, much funnier than American slapstick. The British, unlike Americans, are happy to laugh at themselves, and the British will poke fun at Americans as happily as they poke fun at themselves. Of course, Americans give… Read More
The simple answer is because they are not British! Australians developed their unique accent because of the accents of the original settlers (who came from various parts of the UK but with a high concentration of Londoners and Irish) and the unique social setting of the penal colony and the subsequent change to an agrarian economy.
I don't see why they don't. The British DID colonize America, and Canada! The Australians and New Zealanders got them. Why? MY ANSWER: America had a huge influx of non-British people, especially after the war of Independence. And I'm sure that since we did REBEL from Britain, a British accent and British mannerisms in general would not have made you popular. I suspect that Australians had a predominantly British immigrant population until late in the… Read More
For the same reason most people don't sing with an accent ... they're matching the syllables to the music and that negates most accents.
There are a number of accents within the UK, with different phonetic characteristics. So if one English accent seems 'weird' another might not. And, of course, as English originated in the UK, it could be argued that accents outside the UK are the 'weird' ones!! ;-)
It depends what part of the state you live in. I live in Branson and people here have southern accents, but that's really close to the Arkansas border. I've heard people from St. Louis and they sound like they have a northern accent, like Chicago!
Everyone has 'an' accent, unless they speak in an absolute monotone.
Yes and no. There are two regions in the state of Michigan, the lower peninsula and the upper. People in the lower peninsula claim to have no accent, and for the most part this is true. Lower peninsula people typically have no drawl or lilt, they do not have a twang and are not guttural. There are several words they use that are not typical in other areas of the US, such as "Ma" for… Read More
All of us have an accent. I may feel the general public in Atlanta have an accent, but they feel the same way about me in terms of how I articulate. So they may say to me (coming from the New York Metropolitan area), "ya-all talk funny."
English comes from the UK, and England is in the UK. If you are comparing it to the American-English, American-English is derived from many dialects, and sounds different from the way it began sounding. Just as in the USA each state has regional dialects, such as southern states . Most countries have regional dialects
Everyone has a different accent in different countries. England is like America the different places you go you get different accents there not all the same. For instance an individual can have a Essex accent which is different to the London accent. Also, other accents are Lester accent or a Manchester accent a Nottingham accent a Scottish a Welsh accent and a Hull accent.
Many have a soft 'Brummie' accent.
Everyone has an accent. Your own accent could be considerably different from someone living just a few miles from you.
Being British he has a British accent.
Considering he was born and raised in Great Britain, I don't know how he couldn't have an accent.
Of course, she's English, so she has an English accent.
I think maybe because it is just different and rare to hear, I live in a small village in northern US and I've only talked to about two people with a British accent while not traveling. Personally I think they are just more attractive than American accents, I'm not sure if it is because I'm American, but they can be more distinguished or sexy depending on the accent.Plus Hollywood really romanticises British accents, usually a… Read More
Americans like every one else picks up on how words are pronounced from those around them at a very young age. And just like other countries, it differs within the country itself for the same reasons.
No. Not at all.
No, People from southern IL. have more of a country accent. People from northern IL. talk completely different.
It depends on where in Delaware, and what you consider a "Southern" accent. People who live in southern Delaware, particularly the western portion of Sussex County, have a definite twang and sound "Southern." People who live in northern Delaware often have a "Philly accent." Everyone else sounds pretty normal for the East Coast, although of course there are some terms specific to Delaware and certain words that we pronounce differently.
