      Doesn’t sound like an American accent to me… Although, I think there are probably several different types of American accents.

          Did you like PLC? Your LJ profile says you were only there one year?

            Yeah just Yr 7 and 8.. then my family moved back to SG 🙂

    • beverly posted on June 13, 2006 at 7:34 am

      Really?! People say that to me sometimes but I have no idea where I get it from.. I’d say I sound more Singaporean than American 😛

    You’re American? =O

    I always figured you’d sound Singaporean (lah). 😉

    • beverly posted on June 13, 2006 at 7:34 am

      Not at all! I think I do sound Singaporean, like 70%, and the other 30% is Australian 🙂

    Strangely, you have no accent like I thought you would (which mean you sound American lol). (Actually, I think you still sound the same from your voice samples during Gemz days lol)

    • beverly posted on June 13, 2006 at 7:36 am

      I don’t think I have much of an accent.. but if I was forced to choose, I’d say SG and AU, which is no big surprise, hehe.

      Yeah, the last time I did audio files was almost 10 years ago I think! Time flies..

    You sound so cute!! Really different from what I thought… And so American! But so so cute!!!! 😀 (And how come you have an American accent anyway?)

      Awww hehe thanks, that’s nice of you!

      Erm, I don’t think I have an American accent though, but people always seem to say it.. maybe I watch too much USA tv?? 😛

      • blairwitch posted on June 13, 2006 at 7:51 am

        It was just the way you said ‘and’ 🙂 And that you sound so cheerful, which is how I usually find American accents to be!

        • beverly posted on June 13, 2006 at 7:56 am

          Ohhh haha yeah, true. Some words make me sound American I guess. But I always say “innit” which sends my friends into fits of laughter – they say it sounds so cockney 😉

          • blairwitch posted on June 13, 2006 at 8:13 am

            Haha, you should record that! 😀 It would be so confusing with your other american sounding words!

            Apparently when I say ‘oh yeah’ I pronounce it as ‘aww yeeah’ (in a really Ocker way) and everyone makes fun of it…

    Your voice is cute! That was my first thought before I read anybody’s comments. Although I didn’t have a voice imagined in my head – it didn’t sound like anything I would’ve expected. Very cool idea to post that file.

      I kinda have a non-accent accent… thought some people might find it interesting since it’s not the standard American one 🙂

    I think your accent is pretty Aussie, I deal with loads of American lawyers over the phone and your accent isnt as strong as theirs. My Italian friend sound american when she speaks english because her teacher used to show them american cartoons and tv shows to teach them!

      Yeah I don’t think I have a strong American accent.. just bits of it pop up sometimes, probably from all the USA shows I watch as well! 😉

    Yeah I agree, you sound more American and hardly Australian or Singaporean…perhaps you should throw in a few lah’s after each sentence! LOL =)
