Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    I'm having this issue living in London and it seems my accent is changing slowly - although to what depends on the listener. So for example today I went to an Australian cafe and was surrounded by Aussies for an hour, which seemed to influence my accent so when I was paying the bill the Aussie waitress thought I was Australian (huge faux pas in English speaking circles!). Whereas a month or so ago I was at a BBQ with lots of English people I didn't know and a lot of them mistook me for English. Then on the phone I often get asked if I'm South African.

    To me it sounds like I'm still speaking NZ English.

    I have a Kiwi friend back home who within 5 minutes of being around Americans picks up this weird pseudo American accent. It is very odd but he cannot help himself

    I've always had a slightly odd accent, so I was able to faintly detect New Zealand accents even when I was living in New Zealand. But New Zealanders would occasionally mistake me for English, and when I came to live in London English people often mistook me for South African. Now nobody can place me at all.

    Edit: Plus I mimic whoever I'm speaking with, which can be embarrassing.

    to lose it you have to talk to people who talk differently

    people around me aren't talking a dialect, they're just talking normally

    but if you're exposed to other dialects alot then you notice your own

    I don't have a typical Kiwi accent though - my mother was a speech teacher/examiner, so when I'm not mumbling or talking too fast I speak with the NZ version of "proper English". We are a bit weird with class accents back home though, so whereas 30 years ago a broadcaster had to speak a NZ version of BBC English, now someone who speaks like that (my sister for one) they will have great trouble getting a broadcasting job.

    You probably have a better excuse though - iirc your parents are both from different countries and then they both moved to the US? (sorry if that is someone else). I grew up in NZ and only moved away in my late 20s.

    You know what I hate about Dragon Age...I can't take the interesting folks with me in my party, because then we're failing at all the fights. Like: I'm travelling to a place where I expect to find an item Sten lost, so I want him with me, but he's a weakling compared to my character and he keeps dying on me when I'm not looking. I would have taken Alistair with me instead, but he's no where near as interesting as Sten and he hasn't lost any items as of late.

    Same with the bard girl with the lisp, I dislike her fake lisp and accent, but she's my best lockpick and her ranged attacks are pretty useful.
