    it was weird because I do that with accents too.

    That is very interesting, because the Mid-Atlantic accents (specifically Philadelphia and Baltimore) are the only ones that are rhotic on the East Coast. A native Philadelphian would always pronounce the "r" in "dollar."

    "Roof" varies around the U.S. Some areas pronounce the double-o as you would in "pool" (as I do), others pronounce the double-o as you would in "book." I assume you were talking about that? Almost sounds like the dog's "woof" or "ruff."

    Sorry to say this but "fie dollah" is usually a joke on an asian trying to say "five dollars" - it's not a philly thing.

    OK. That is missing from that anecdote, though. LOL The Asian accent would make it more like "fie dorrah" though, wouldn't it?

    Like the French saying:

    "Chacun voit midi sa porte"... ->"Everyone sees noon at his door"

    Subtle differences you are accustomed to make are not necessarily relevant everywhere.

    This thread is great to reveal people who unconsciously think they are the center of the world, and that their subjective perception represents absolute facts.

    ---

    Frankly, if I asked you to make clear differences between several French accents, I do not think I might be the best judge. Yes, I could decipher the difference between, let's say Breton and Normandy accents, and explain why such a difference is relevant, and follow from completely different local stories. But for a foreigner, it would sound totally similar, and I know it.

    Think more carefully of it.

    Well... I really don't like Caribbean accents or anything that sounds like Jamaican/Haitian.
    Liberia English sounds just like it... So it's effin annoying, too, even though it's not in the Caribbean.
    I could literally puke as soon as I hear it.
    I also have a distaste for stiff upper lip Queen's English.
    Come to think of it, there aren't a whole lot of British English accents I like at all.
    Of course I do not count Scotland and Northern Ireland.

    Preferred accent: Irish, Scottish or Texan (although not the trailer trash accent... More the normalized accent).
    The Texan accent as I've heard it from Kyuuei and Jeffster is pretty awesome.
    The mannerisms are really cool. "Thank you kindly" and a lot of polite stuff without going corpse stiff like the Queen's English.

    Mightier than the tread of marching armies is the power of an idea whose time has come
