Just seen it, very cringeworthy

BBC says it's a psychological phenomenon caled "speech accommodation" where people change accent to fit context. It is often a subconscious attempt to be friendly.

I find myself doing this a lot, changing my intonation when speaking English to foreigners
.... And I include Americans in that!

Its a perfectly natural thing to do when people are struggling with your accent

Bollocks to that. No way am I changing the way I speak to suit the locals down here. There will be no raised intonation at the end of a sentence, no arvos, no no worries. What they do get is references to chicken arseburners resulting in an arse like a Japanese flag. Going out to get completely cunted or wankered. And I do ask for courgettes, peppers and aubergines while steadfastly refusing to capitulate to the likes of zucchini, capsicum and eggplant. Plus keeping honest to words like data (not dar-ta) and yoghurt (not yoe-gert).

Bit of a non story really, we have probably all done it on holiday at some point.

Saying that, I would f***ing love to hear a Frenchman try to talk to our journalists in French but with an exaggerated cockney accent!

Was in a NY hospital earlier this year. Your man on the front desk literally could not understand me and I had to write down my name and address for him on arrival. F**k putting on a yank accent!! :lol:

Good luck with avoiding the raised intonation - bloody impossible after a while not to pick it up, same with 'no worries' - With you on most of the rest of it though

Currently spitting the dummy on twitter over this piece by some fatcunt in the Daily Mail http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/footba ... amuel.html

tbh I'm not sure if Joey deserves a whoosh or if Samuel needs a kicking - it doesn't read very well anyway.

It's quite unnerving in the states when you know you are talking English but pcunt can understand you.
