I've always said that my favorite part of Highlander is the fact that the Egyptian-born Spaniard (played by Sean Connery) has more of Scottish accent than the *actual* Highlander.

I'm not saying her performance wasn't good or how the real person actually talked, but I've lived in the Northwest my whole life, and I don't think I've ever hear anyone that sounds like that. I don't know, it could be because I live in the city, and she's supposed to be more redneck but huh...

Can u do Australian vs british. They actually have alot in common. Don't they mate...see what I did there lol was it British or Ausie
Tức Thuỷ (2 days ago)
As a Vietnamese I like how he analyzes the accent cuz people may said that her accent is racist or stereotypes but this is actually how my friend and some of my relatives speak English. Many people i guess haven’t heard a Vietnamese speak English so they’ll find the accent very strange and they’ll think its very stereotypes. So kudos to him.

I describe the austrailian accent and the british accent warm and cold, based on the weatherish? its like an aussie has like a warmer and louder and more... in a way warmer accent? and i think a british person has a colder an more quiet accent but its really strong.

For Highlander I think they deliberately made the accent vague because the character has been alive for 500 years living all over the world trying to blend in it makes sense his accent is very muddled

If I wanted to learn more on accents and dialect differences centered on English as the spoken language, where would I go? How would I learn more? I’m a writer, so writing accents has always been something intriguing and before I wanted to write I wanted to be an actor but I lacked natural talent. I would like to learn more all the same.

My southern accent is so boring compared with other dialects/accents. I’ve even been told I have a decent newscaster voice with little to no accent at times, but British, Australian, Irish English accents are something I’d love to learn properly.

I think for the American Accent (Get Out), he might've been better using AAVE, especially bc Kaluuya is a Brit, so African American Vernacular English isn't native for him (but AAVE also varies across the states/areas, Philly v DC Metro, for example)
