    Audrey (“Awwdrey”, not “Aahdrey”) is picking up the English accent really quickly.
    When she Skypes with friends back in the States, they think it’s very funny.
    When she says “water”, it’s now pronounced very carefully “war-ter” and all the “o” sounds in words like “dog” are extremely well enunciated, instead of the American; “dahg”.
    She was chatting with her aunt the other day, who made her say “Audrey put the dog in the water” and then laughed. She sounds like she’s trying to be very upper class, hahaha.

      Funny! Who says Ahhdrey? That sounds pretentious! lol
      Leaving Georgia turned all of our accents down a bit, but it’s still noticeable at times. Moo never talked much before we got to Georgia, and she never did have a full-on drawl, but there were times I’d laugh about how much her speech was influenced by the region.

    A friend of mine who grew up in Georgia told me that all colors have at least two syllables in the South (ray-ed, bah-loo, gu-reen, buh-lack) except white (whaht)…

    Haha! Sam, LM, and I don’t have much of an accent (more Yankee sounding for LM and me according to the locals), but so far BG has a total country drawl.

      The moment my husband crosses the Mason-Dixon line, he starts talkin right out of a Tennessee Williams play. Takes me at least a few hours 😉 LOL
      Course, if we head north, everyone thinks we’re southern. I live in a peculiar place..

    Kids are so quick! I was tutoring a couple while they struggled to learned English…their little girl spoke perfect English but with all the American clichés of classmates…we had the funniest conversations.

    I was very good at accents when I was little. I wonder if it’s a phonetic thing…

    Accents are unique for Indians – we really don’t have one or have ones inspired by the local tongue. And then some become conscious while talking to other folks from the world and then we just become plain funny – unintentionally 😛
