If you were to go into a social situation where nobody knew you, and had to put on an accent (of your choice)


#1

how long do you think you could last before your accent slipped and you started talking in your normal voice? And also, what accent would you choose?

I think I could keep up a cockney / lahndahn voice for maybe a day or so of a three-day work conference.

I’d do my hilarious brummy accent.

I’d last about three words.


#3

I’d go really posh, could probably keep it up indefinitely.


#4

35 mins

Well until I had to say bath or grass or something, then I might stumble.


#6

Irish.

Tree hours


#7

Patois.

Seconds


#8

Northern Irish. Be fine as long as I only had to talk about powers, showers and Peter Piper.


#9

ffs


#10

I tried to record myself doing a yorkshire accent a wee while ago and it kept on descending into a really posh scottish accent, basically I sounded like Mrs Doubtfire. So that.

Oh and I’d last for days.


#11

Did this for a whole day with my friend once to wind her up when I visited her home town of St Albans. Kept it up magnificently.


#12

Welsh. One word, seven, and then I’ll slip into cod-Indian shopkeep.
