We like to repeat ourselevs my granny says bye about 100 times before she hangs up the phone and my dads the same- If anyone jsut said Bye on the phone and hung up I would find it rude like on tv some ppl hang up without even saying bye on the phone!!!!


My Dad: Im going now

Me: Ok bye, love you, bye

Dad: bye, love you too, bye, bye, bye, bye

Me: bye, see you later bye

Dad: bye, bye bye




Thats really what phone calls are like here

i love the french and spanish accents as well. all of my children will have spanish names.
Id give my children Irish names if I dont live here.

Spanish names my friend has a brother called Joan its catalan though for the spanish Juan. I find it really weird cus Joan here is a womans name.


I like French names better tho than Spanish names.

well seeing that my heritgage is Spanish/Mexican and my name is really Spanish and all of my family names are all Spanish, i want to keep up the tradition and have Spanish names for my children.

when i have my daughter, she will be named Isabella.

ok i know this has nothing to do with Dublin Accents sounding like American accents. lol

I say "guys" still.

At least I stopped saying "y'all" two years ago.

I'm still afraid to pronounce a lot of place names here because I'll say them wrong. Like NottingHAM and BirmingHAM and Edenberg.

In Kentucky, Versailles is Vursales and Louisville is Looavul.

That's the way I do it now. Except sometimes I slip and say BirmingHAM because that's how it's pronounced in Alabama. Then everyone laughs at me. I also say "toob" instead of "tube." The -ceisters and -shires still get me sometimes.

lara mullen, you can listen to some of the diverse accents of atlanta by listening to one of the radio stations over the net.

www.99x.com

most of those who dj here are not locals at all. some are from england. but at least you can hear the locals call in.
