Young people and American accents
Has anyone else noticed that significant numbers of young people (have to say its especially girls) talk with a mid-Atlantic accent (and say ‘like’ a lot in a 90210 style)? It’s really bizarre. These aren’t people who’ve ever lived in the US or have American parents. Probably mostly middle-class kids, often emo types. 🙂
How many generations of American cultural dominance before everyone in the country sounds American?Posted 4 years agodeadlydarcyMember
Tbf, I hear the upward inflection but I’ve never really heard the American accent that strongly. I also think that kids grow out of the fake cockney gangsta patua type thing after a while too. I find it quite funny listening to my two nephews in London – they couldn’t be more middle class but listening to them talking with their mates is hilarious. 🙂Posted 4 years ago
