A little, I think.

I've picked people from Perth before just by their accent. There's a kinda sharpness to it. That and every sentence finished with 'hey'. And loads of unique vocabulary. If you don't understand half the slang, they're from Perth.

Queensland is easy: Sllloooow speaking, and the accent locks right in with the worst Aussie accent stereotype, ie bogan.

Sydney, apparently we talk fast and it's noticeable (???)

Adelaide pronounce France/Dance/Chance etc, as in, Fr-ar-nce, ie the true English way rather than American way.

Don't know about VIC.

Ok so all joking aside, I learnt in my linguistics class (Damn I need a diagram) that NZ 'i' sounds are very close to the 'e' and 'u'. As in they are all made in similar places in the mouth.

Apparently the NZ 'i' shifted from the English accent, and the Australian 'i' is a vowel shift to a different part of the mouth.

Does that make sense?

(I had huge problems telling a German that we needed to pull out the pegs , from the pigs pen.) It took a long time before he could tell I was using a different word.

I remember the movie Fargo being recommended purely because of the crazy Minnesota accent! (great movie too.)

I'm going to Minnesota this year, I can only hope I will get to hear a Marge Minnesota accent

Big Grin I haven't heard feesh or deesh here - but I have heard psuedo-southern accents

The first two are the actual plurals of the words in paranthesis, right?

As for the CRICK thing...that is a nationwide problem.

There are TWO friggin E's in the word (EE) - since when is that pronounced "I"?

It's actually an international problem. Some Canadians are likewise afflicted

Hey maybe it's a North American thing, don't bring the rest of us into it!

We say creek.

It annoys me how Americans say aluminium as a-lume-a-num.
Alu-min-ium. It's not that hard.

Also how they say secont for second. It's a D!!

we spell aluminum differently in the US, that's why we say it differently.
