Speech/accents/dialect

Have you ever thought what other siters sound like?

Would it put you off?

Do you mind if you are posh and they are not?

Personally, it doesn't bother me. It wouldn't put me off and, I am polite, speak nicely and It wouldn't bother me in the slightest.

    I have thought about this loads of times, I cant imagine how some people sound.
    There was a thread up a while ago and people made sound recording of their voices. They sounded totally different to what I thought.

    Edited to add Mr Seed sounds really nice :)

    ive been told i have a posh accent. :p but then sometimes my voice is just me :confused:

    i wouldnt mind what someone else sounded like :)
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    As Ellie said I imagine everyone to speak like me :blush:

    Just that I have a weird Danish/American accent. So it's completely weird when i hear recordings and people have these twisted British/Scottish accents.

    Ive tried but cant remember where it was or what it was called. If Bad Seed is around ask him he may be able to remember what it was called, or anyone reading this can you remember what the thread was called where people added a voice recording of themselves?

    I think the thread was in the introduce yourslef one, but that only goes 3 pages back, so I think it's lost.

    I guess I just assume everybody on here talkes like me, well with the accent though nearly everybody else is much more well spoken. Mainly because I have not the slightest idea what other accents really sound like and because I can't really tell the difference between your different accents. So to me, everybody speaks like me :p
