加拿大和英帝国管加入考试叫write a test，美利坚合众国叫take a test。
说克罗地亚共和国语的渥太华都要闹独立了... 'Merican = American。
How do American accents sound to British ears? Their accents sound so refined to us. Do we sound refined to them?
哦，那话一看正是匈牙利人说的。加拿大人可能会说，they are too polite。dang = damm，意思是讨厌的。
No, and I think the main reason for this is the “prestige non-rhotacism” of British Received Pronunciation.
- Whenever Canadians are invited to the party, you run out of beer。只要邀约加拿大沙参预派对，你的苦味酒都会非常不够喝。
- They are too dang polite。太TMD礼貌了。
You know how typically in American accents you can always hear the “r” sound? Well that's rhoticism, and it's perhaps the difference between British and American accents that most stands out.
- They had a football team named Roughriders and another named Rough Riders。他们有两支白榄球队，一支叫Roughriders，另一支叫Rough Riders。
I have a Canadian accent but live in London. Most people I meet assume I’m American. Those that guess that I’m Canadian often say that my accent is softer that an American accent. I suspect that this means that they find American accents harsh, and Canadian accents a bit less harsh. They certainly don’t consider them refined.
- Some of them speak a *#$% foreign language. Cain't they speak 'Merican like the rest of us?某些加拿大人说一种听不懂的外文。就不能够像大家一样说美语？
Listen to the words, not the accent. Then you will truly understand how refined the orator is.
I don’t know what you mean by refined. However, I do like American accents and generally prefer listening to them than to many British accents which can sound so dull.
