    BrE/AmE

    Hello people...

    I love watching TV and stuff, and I've realized through the years that british pronunciation seems much more attractive to me than others, such as american or australian. Although sometimes it's a little more difficult to reproduce than the ones I've mentioned, I really enjoy listening to that particular way that british people have to speak. Even if you listen the same speech with different pronunciations, it sounds sooo much better by someone who uses the british one. Besides, when it comes to something as banal as an insult, you get a wide variety of classy, stylish, wit expressions that make me like it even more.

    I'd like you fellows to tell me your opinion about this issue, the way you see it, and also to vote, for british, american or any other you like.

    See you...

    American English is the bastard child of the English language. A shame to the English that they engendered that, particularly given the exposure.

    Then again, the English spoken in New England (particularly Boston) is quite similar to what you hear as British English (which in itself is artificial... what you hear on the BBC was invented by the BBC, it isn't really a dialect in any part of the Isles). Cockney, for instance, is rarer these days, and utterly incomprehensible. Geordie is very funny, and if we're talking about the best worst-pronounciation it has to be the Scottish Brogue, and by far. God damnit it's spectacular.

    I find the Australian accent tremendously suitable to women for some reason.

    God I love those scottish bastards!!!!!!

    It's quite ugly but at the same time it's spectacularly fun listening to!!(by the way, I love the Sean Connery impersonation on SNL ).

    And I don't understand what you say about aussies, Tincho. I just remember poor Steve Irwin (RIP) saying 'Danger, danger, danger!!!', and it doesn't sound that good. And I don't think of australian women as particularly feminine as well.

    I knew a few Aussies, and well, the accent suited them.

    It's ugly in a very lovely way... I don't really know how to say that, but its not that I don't like it... It's fascinating.
    What I mean is that it's not as elegant as the regular english you listen in a movie(any movie with Hugh Grant for instance), but I really love it.

    In my case, I´d say that I prefer to speak and listen american english. I don´t know why, maybe because I feel more comfortable. However, I like british english also, specially when I´m joking... it sounds great.

    When you say "Low Class English" do you mean East-End Cockney?... And as common and popular as it was up until world war 2, it's beginning to fade. Which is a damned shame, it's veritably witty even if it's nigh on incomprehensible.

    I´m not sure if it´s that english, when i say "low class english" i´m basically thinking in english spoken in british movies that are about the lower classes, the ones that comes to my mind right now are, as i said "Billy Elliot" and "Full monty". But if you say it´s beginning to fade, then i guess it´s not probably the one i talk about... since those movies are relatively new (yeah.... for me a movie of 10 years ago is still new )

    I Love the british pronunciation... had to practice for years, until I was able to pronounce it properly... One of the thing I love about Anthony Hopkins is his voice and the way he speaks... ( I'm pretty sure I can fall in love with a man just by hear him talking.... (damn freak ))
    Australian accent is very charming, But nothing compares with the scottish one though...
    Well, it's quite late...( and I should be reading toxo... )

    First of all:
    i AM a human deragement.

    but i wouldn't be so if my both real parents hadn't dumped me in a trash can outside luthien's house!!!!!!!

    oh, by the way, my real father is Matute. I wonder how my mum could ever forget him!!!

    tincho, no hard feelings. we just don't belong to the same family.
    dengue, ditto to you.

    the thing is, basically, luthien declared herself as my mother -giving me a whole family, not just a mother-, but an adoptive one -she wanted to get rid of the bloodbonds, just in case :P-.

    so, as a personal revenge, i declared my original parents matute and you julietitaaa. you were the two more suited to fill the place of my messed up -but clever- genes. as a result, you ended up being my parents, without you knowing it :P.

    that's the short version. for the extended family tree, and further explanation, text "John 1" to *666.
    if you want to see wether julietitaaa and matute accepts their NOT newly born kid, text "John 2" to *666.
    if you want this show to cancel, and put the ever succesful sitcom "Friends" insted of it, you can go to hell.

    … Let’s see if I get this straight… Tincho is/was with Julietitaa… they conceived a child (Denguee) but it turns out that she’s not tincho’s daughter…
    Then a man appears claiming the fatherhood of Denguee… ( some delivery guy)… and just when we thought that everything was in order, a second child appears (Psy), saying HE’s Julietitaa’s son…. (and Tincho seems to be his father….) but then Psy “ calls the whole thing off “ by saying that Matute is his biological father!!!

    This is a freakin’ greek comedy ( or tragedy) and I’M the guach pistol???????

    Of course dear.. I dumped him as soon as he was born, remember? I don't even know how he managed to find me. Whatever, got rid of him once, can do it twice!

    Tincho, I promissed little dengueee a house of chocolate, you know. If she doesn't get one, she's gonna be reeeeeally mad and if she gets mad? she's gonna stop letting us rent her body and, well, I can't think of any other way to get the money to buy our perfectly legal... stuff. Think about it, you're running out of time. Your family's patience has a limit, damn it!

    Then again, the English spoken in New England (particularly Boston) is quite similar to what you hear as British English
    I'm sorry to tell you that I was born in New England (Hartford, Connecticut) , very close to Boston,and the English that is spoken there has nothing to do with British English. It is true that there are several dialects in USA as happens here, but they differ a lot from the Brits.
