Re: The speech of native English speakers in non-native nati

How the native Anglophones of my country sound like: https://youtube.com/watch?v=s2XAX5EyYSA https://youtube.com/watch?v=Q0ba6SwtXPQ I wonder how such accents would sound like from a foreign perspective.

Re: My invented language

Your original video and the others sound like English with a completely altered grammar with some East-Asian-sounding words thrown in, to my ears. Well, I mean, I'm pretty sure that can be used to describe any language. But in this case it was almost like a text written in English with the words re...

Re: My invented language

BTW, what does it sound like to you? So. . .were any of the answers close? As expected? Totally off the chart? Did you also spot the Finnish loanwords? Alas no, that wasn't me! But I wouldn't know Finnish from Karelian or Hungarian! So, Tagalog was nowhere close!? There is Tagalog there too, yes, b...

Re: My invented language

Interesting. Can we see some info on it? A phonology and Romanisation would be a good start, then maybe some grammar? Phonology-wise, what you see is what you get, but as for anything unusual about the phonology, it would be the use of uh to represent schwas and dh to represent soft th's. Also, y i...

Re: What language does Google Translate think your conlang i

Usually Finnish and English. There are exceptions, such as this passage which Google Translate thought was Samoan: Breiking kai dhuhs ruulsem wen getwii tuugedher
Enithingem ät kai, biijuuko reedii tuu duu
Breiking kai dhuhs ruulsem voiwii ruhn pois
Vain mii ja juu, åw, åw, åw, åw

Re: The speech of native English speakers in non-native nati

I am a native Portuguese speaker, so what motivation would they have to do that? I knew other children of expats growing up, and none of them had foreign-sounding accents, I really don't think that happens. I guess that's it. I too am a native speaker of the native language of my place, but most Fi...

Re: The speech of native English speakers in non-native nati

Not many 'quirks'. I grew up in South America with an English-speaking father (I live in Poland now). I think my English pronunciation is very close to my dad's as far as I can tell (he's from North London and has a somewhat polished accent, but not completely unplaceable). We do drop some h's and ...
