ozoneoceanseventy2Eh, could be... I dunno, I'd have to get a Kiwi and ask him how I sound
i always thought it would be more like fesh and cheps.
that's how crocodile Dundee sounds :P
also regarding my accent: i spent my first 8 years in florida, which isn't known for having a "seperate" accent in america. i spent 4 in arkansas, but that southern accent only comes out when i speak slow. Mostly when giving people proper spellings of things or numbers. so when i talk over a radio, it comes out heavily. go job! anyways, i've spent the other 11 in a half and half with indiana, and nebraska, also not known for their accents. so unless i speak slowly, no-one knows where i'm from.
i've been all over, and majority of non proper people add the "stressed a" sound to alot of words. not just my region.
does anyone outside america say "tattle-tail"?
