I bought Arcanum Unbounded the other day and was rather baffled by this excerpt, in which Lift and Wyndle were talking. Wyndle: I had the most magnificent chairs. Lift: Shars? Wyndle: Yes, chairs. (More words) Lift: Yu* gardened shars? Wyndle: Of course I gardened chairs. *It was spelt like this in the text. Lift is speaking with her mouth full here, but that doesn’t really excuse this wayward pronunciation. Has anything been said about the accent of the Azish peasantry? Is there a real world accent which makes ‘chairs’ sound like ‘shars’? Any help would be appreciated.
Recently because of a move to a place where the dominant accent is not my own, I've been thinking about my accent. It's northwestern American, one most would recognize as your average American accent. I've noticed it gets a lot stronger around my family and friends and the opposite around, say, teachers. What's your accent like? When does it get stronger, weaker, etc? Any good stories? Please, tell me!
