Hey, I heard that, twang indeed! I do know that most Aussies have an upward
Inflection at the end of a sentence ?
Almost like a question but not quite.I have mentioned before my 2 g.mothers
Were Londoners but I don`t remember them having a English accent. Probably
Because they were very young when they arrived here.

I have an accent but it is a somewhat nondescript one as those who were
Able hear the audio file I sent at Christmas would know.
I had a Cumbrian mother and Londoner father, spent the first five years
Of life in Paddington, London and the next ten in Cumberland then back to
London for a while followed by Kettering, Northants for a couple of years
Then four years in the RAF, three more in London, thirty-three in Melbourne
And finally, the past 14 years in S-W Western Australia which has a somewhat

Milder acccent than the Sydney/Melbourne twang.
Coincidentally, I had to call Ancestry.com yesterday morning and was
Talking to a very pleasant 'Southern' girl during the course of which
Conversation we chatted briefly about accents. I had mentioned that I was in

Australia. She thought I must have spent some time in the States because she

Had no problem understanding me. I had no problem understanding her either
But didn't assume that she must have spent some time in Australia because of

It. Lol

Geo.
