    Exotic Accents!

    by WizardBeast » Tue Dec 07, 2010 5:43 pm

    i'm so sorry if i am de-personalizing anyone, but as an American, i am VERY VERY excited to be partying with people from all over the world and HEARING YOU TALK!

    i will DIE from excitement hearing all of these exotic accents from all over the globe, men and women both. I really have thought about that! I just love accents (except a few in the states...but other ones, yeah).

    any French speakers? I'll speak a bit of French with folks! i know people with many different accents are coming - please speak softly into my ear ok? raaooow. swedish, norwegian, northern german...and french...YES PLEASE. others welcome too. i have big ears you can't miss 'em!

    I am SO with you on this!! One of the most exciting things to me about this cruise is how it is so international; I just love accents, especially those of all our Aussies joining us! :cheers: Hoping to be able to use my Spanish (more so than usual, anyway!). Most cruises will post a list of all the countries the passengers are from in the booklet they give you when you board, so that should be really cool to see!
    I want what we've never had!

    As a huge geography nerd and someone who's interested in language, culture etc. I used to work as a tour guide when I was 17 (long hair and wearing my ...And Justice for All tour shirt) people would be floored that I knew where they were from.

    While I haven't travelled as much as I would have liked ( Monaco and Sweden) so chatting with everyone will be very exciting!!

    It's really funny to see "foreigners" attempt a Boston accent. They are too obvious. My little cousins out here in SoCal try using "wicked" sometimes and usually fail miserably. Also, the first person to ask me to say "Pahk the cah in Hahvuhd yahd" is getting thrown ovahbo-ed.

    I'm also quite interested in language, especially the various regional dialects that exist within a language. I've never studied it in school but it's a pretty neat subject.

    actually the pahk your caaah in haahvaahhd yaahd thing is funniest in the contest of one of my geography professors - she grew up in Germany then lived in Boston for many years! She had a total Bostonian German accent! it was WICKED STRANGE!

    and only the uncool poser metalheads might possibly escape dorkdom. but they are not worth knowing.

    My wife is 100% Turkish, she is fluent in English but has a very thick, killer accent.
    It is a joy to listen to her read
    and gives me a ready made excuse for not listening when she makes silly demands.

    Here's a fun little guide to Boston english.

    My accent really isn't bad at all (I'm from Northern New England) but it can get comical when I drink too much.

    three weeks ago, we were in London and the first three places we went to the person we talked to spoke worse English than we did - accents aren't always that fun ;)
    accents are great as long as you still understand what the other one's saying
    unfortunately, my English didn't improve over the last few years - but I should manage to share some important pieces of information like "four more beers" or "bewbs"

The booklet is a great idea. I would love to see all the metal fans and where they have traveled from to be on the cruise!

    You shouldn't look forward to hear my Danish accent. The Danish accent is probably one of the worst accents there is.

    You might be disappointed by our Canadian accents. Unless of course your looking for the quebec accents, I think theres a few of those on broad. I'll work on my "Take your boots off and sit down there on the chesterfield boy" accent just for you though. :heavydrink:

    I, for one, cannot wait to unleash the sultry, sensual and scrumptious tones of my well-bred Edmontonian speech. Something tells me that at some point, you could find myself, Viathyn and Jamie (+ applicable roommates) jaunting down the corridors whilst hollaring some "traditional" phrases found in Canadiana lore.

    i even like Canadian accents! bring it on. i am so excited to be hanging out with hundreds (seems like) of Canadians. I had the best times at Milwaukee metalfest with Canuks! you hosers! bring your hats and couches and all that slang i already know it :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

    maybe i sound biased but ALL my Canadian friends are pretty damned cool. i'd happily move up there too. Calgary looks kinda like Denver of the North.

    do a lot of gesturing, you should be fine! better yet, teach the staff what ordering a beer is like in Swedish (and me too, maybe i'll visit your fine country someday)

    well, i had a job as a lifeguard at one time. i will probably be watching for you drunk asses to make it out of the swimming pool ALIVE then!!!! drunken metalheads + pool + moshing = a concern to say the least. i sure hope i don't have to drag anyone's ass out of there. if i save anyone, it's free beer for me the rest of the trip!

    Well, yes, both are ok I guess. "En stor stark" translates, like you said, into "a big strong" while "en öl, tack" translates into "a beer, please".

    fun thread! I LOVE foreign accents. :D - very sexy imo

    as for me....I honestly don't think I have an "accent" :lol: There supposedely is a "Chicago accent," but I don't think I have it...it seems like it is more of a south side kinda thing, maybe (I'm a north-sider). Anyway, got a kick out of this when I googled "Chicago accent"...http://www.wikihow.com/Fake-a-Chicago-Accent
