    Ah of course.
    Is that what I know as Standard British English?

    I don't know what I speak. I always thought it sounded more American than 22%.
    I don't know what to speak either. All the teacher over here are trying to teach you to speak British English, but then all the shows and movies you're exposed to are in American English. To make matters worse, British singers start singing in American accents. So I don't know what that leaves us with. I guess I've always imagined a Standard International English.

    Hmm, I haven't heard schoolboy blues in a while. I remember it being more funky/less bluesy.

    But yeah, my big problem with the stones is mick's affected signing style

    I'm at 52% American and 48% British on that test. That doesn't seem right. My fake British accent is only 84% British.

    Test 3: 72% American.

    trying to sound British makes you sound more American? Impressive.

    My Austrian wife got 94% American. She sounds more American than I do. My best fake British accent sounds more British than my actual American accent sounds American. Stoopid AI

    i just watched a few videos on youtube to get the vowels right and got 94% American by doing an American.

    I feel compelled to complain about helping others through my taxes, buy a firearm, and get rid of adverbs so fast.

    The toony/Dunediner accent is identical to the Glaswegian accent right?

    Taking a cue from Fox Mulder: I'd rather not give some site testing fake accents access to my microphone, because my machine has enough bugs as it is. :cool:

    97% American. I didn't do any fake accents because mine are all terrible and sound like nothing that exists.

    At least he cares for his deaf fans, I guess. All these years I just thought the crazy hands were part of his dance moves.
