Excerpt from the ABC Documentary,The Sounds of Aus,hosted by John Clarke.http://shop.abc.net.au/products/sound... While there are plenty of videos on Youtube that claim to show you how to do an Aussie accent,most of them miss the important point that there is more than one uniform accent-more to do with social and cultural influences,rather than regional..Pick the type you want(Broad,General or Cultivated-General being the most common) and go for it!
"Ask the Master to Pass the Banana!"
Note:I do not own this video.No copyright infringement is intended.However I feel it is THE best documentary on the Australian accent presently available so I ask that the filmmakers allow these clips as an intro.Go check it out at the link above.
Edit 1: 275,000 views! Thank you very much!
Edit 2: Can we all not insult each other? In no way by posting this video did I anticipate arguments in the comments with people insulting each other's accents.All accents are fascinating,but the Australian accent is amongst one of the hardest to do of the English language-based ones.I thought this might be a good tool for actors & others who are interested in mastering all kinds of accents.
If you're interested in seeing a non-Australian who does an EXCELLENT Australian accent,check out this brilliant clip of Stephen Fry & Hugh Laurie,parodying Australian soaps:http://youtu.be/bV3tfauw3vQ
Thanks for watching! Now be nice! :-)
