Very puzzling...

One of life's great mysteries....How can one get "Fush" out of "Fish"


Regarding a Queensland accent, I do hear something. It's not only a more exaggerated accent with crappier vocabularly, but what's with using the word "but" at the end of a sentence......but?

There is also something in the South Australian accent as well. Hard to pin down what it is, though they have been renowned to call things by different names from the rest of the country anyway. They call thongs something completely different I think.

Wow, you must have had a bad run of meeting the few unfortunates who say fush instead of fish. I only know of 2 people who pronounce it that way - one being my neighbour!!!

Like I said, we sent all the bad ones to Oz!!

edited to add....what I really love is the 'sibling' rivalry between our two countries!!!

That comment suggest that there is some sort of "brotherhood" or "sisterhood" between us, and that is an idea I find rather nauseating.

We would never associate ourselves with such undesirables

I've never heard a New Zealander say "fish" properly....

But then I'd have to actually speak to a New Zealander! What if someone caught me! I'd be publically shamed!

Mind you, it could be worse. Speaking to a New Zealander is much more acceptable than speaking to.....a Sydneysider!

I enjoy talking to people of different accents. I met some people from Kentucky once who had the thickest accents you could hear. They were embarassed by their own accents! I think they said something along the lines of, "You'd hate Kentawckay. We're just a buncha hicks drivin' tractors."

I've never heard anyone badmouth the Philly accent. I love having an identifying feature of my hometown. I never understand why anyone would try to change their own accent. It's something unique.

a lot of accents bug me. let's see:

- ALL southern accents
- new york/new jersey accents (esp. long island)
- german accents

the fish/fush thing earlier reminded me of a debate a friend and i were having with a friend of ours. she can talk really country sometimes, and one example of this is she pronounces pen like pin.
