Funniest Accents In English

Wed Oct 31, 2007 4:17 am

Living in LA, I was exposed to a lot of "funny" accents. What are some of the accents you find funny?

Indian/South Asian Accent
Vietnamese Accent
"Chinese" Accent

BTW, anyone try to learn to speak English in another accent, right now I'm trying to pick up on a NY accent.

Newfoundlander (Newfoundlandese?).

It's a cross between North American and like and Irish/Scottish hybrid. It's actually a really cool sounding accent when you're hearing people speak it in real life, because it's often so ridiculed on TV. So, when you hear someone speak with it for real, you kinda do a double take and smile on the inside.

The UK has more accents than you can shake a stick at! Ones which amuse (and fascinate) me are the true Devonian 'janner', Somerset and Dorset's 'wurzel', and the Cornish accent. All will sound like another language completely to a foreigner, the latter sometimes drifting into true the Cornish dialect which I find impossible to understand. The Westcountry accents in general are said to be as close to the 'Anglo Saxon' language as you can get! I would try to find some videos to post, but YouTube is down for maintenance.

Brummie English is also a bit of a laugh, it's often used by others when somebody wants to take the piss, or pretend to be stupid, which isn't entirely fair on the population of the West Midlands.  silly

Chicago accent (i.e. Bob Woodward):




Louisiana accent (i.e. James Carville):




Old Boston accent (i.e. JFK):




Pittsburgh accent. I couldn't find a good example. But "You need to go around the house" sounds like, "Yinz need ta go arond the hoss"

I like the Wales accent in a way (like James Callaghan). While in London for 3 months in 72, my correspondence teacher was Welsh and uuuuunbelievably proooud of it ! And while the Dublin accent is quite nice, I find the Belfast thing really horrible. Cockney is something teachers tell you NOT to take over but when in London you gradually absorb some of that into your own English, as you in reality here it in so many places. Amazing is that the various quarters of London have their own accents, bordering to dialects. But, I still remember a Switzerland-country-manager of British Airways complaining that some fool in London had told him that people in German speaking Switzerland spoke SOME dialects, but since having arrived he had realized that every single Swiss resident spoke his particular private dialect !  rotfl

amazing is that I when travelling in the USA realized that JFK, possibly a bit like Bill Clinton, was far far far more popular in Europe than in his own country. After his death, there even was a longplay-record with most of his speeches on the market which sold very very well .

bit off topic, but that was the enternally famous "Isch bin ein Baelineeaer" speech. I watched that live on TV back then and I watched the vidoe in full lenght again just now. This should be shown in every history class and every politics class around the world.

The speech shows what makes the difference between "politician" and "statesman" and I have never heard a better explanation of the term "freedom". The speech is only equalled by Ronald Reagan's speech in Berlin. Both were proven right.

And yes, wonderful Bostonian accent.

Which needs some refinement. Because the cockney accent isn't a generic London accent at all, but a very specific part of London. Those who aren't used to it tend to call most London accents "cockney" and that's far from true; different parts of London have very different accents, from the way west Londoners will use a glottal stop on the first part of a word but not the second, whilst the rest of London will use it on the second but not the first, to very, very different accents in the East End compared to the rest of the capital and so forth.

two different things indeed --- as I have seen many of the persons in question CAN switch from Cockney to a more "standard" London accent

you however have to imagine that as a newcomer you take over EVERYTHING, you mix the Paddington/WestLondon thing with a bit of Cockney and things you catch up in other areas such as Tottenham Court Road, Hounslow/Heathrow etc.

interesting is when you ask people for the way, some have it with "Tottnem Court r...d" and "Piccadilly l...." and others rather with "Tottnnn crt ROUAD" and "Piccad.... LANE" which is quite entertaining in a way !  Big grin

Many years ago when operating into Bombay, with a co-pilot who had a broad Welsh accent, as we shut the engines down we asked by the tower to report to operations before leaving the airport.

Wondering what we had down we however did report to operations where we were criticised for speaking on the R/T in a mock Indian accent. the co-pilot, who had been doing the R/T, hotly denied this and in doing so his Welsh accent explained everything, as a Welsh accent and an Indian accent can sometimes be very similar, especially over the R/T

I'm unfortunately totally accent-deaf, which is an embarrassing affliction for a linguist, kind of like a pilot who's unable to tell an A320 from an A321.  ashamed 

I can tell an American from a Briton, but not an American from a Canadian or a Kiwi from an Aussie. There's absolutely no way in hell I could tell a Bostonian from a Chicagoan. I just see every person's speech mannerisms as an individual characteristic - to me, there are no discernible geographical patterns in pronunciation. I know very well that that's a totally false perception, but there you go. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I suck at music, too.  Smile

Idiosyncratic pronunciations never strike me as particularly funny, either. What does amaze me is when I can't understand a supposedly native English speaker. So my nomination for the "funniest English accent" goes to the citizens of the city of Glasgow. It's the only "English speaking" city I've ever been to where I had a hard time trying to understand what people were saying to me.  Smile

The broad yorkshire accent can be difficult to pick up as words are often changed or pronounced differently as in thee or thy for you, kay for key, darn for down babby for baby, watter for water etc. Must say though, a small minority only speak broad yorkshire dialect, and its mainly the ex miners and old people.
