I thought the movie accent was hilarious, but then I've always been more Newscaster Standard.
I'm Transatlantic.

Mid-Atlantic?

Or just some vaguely European/African accent?

They're synonymous

I guess what you call it depends upon where you're from.

Huh, Transatlantic makes no sense in that context.

Verbing weirds language. And language weirds life.

Those of us from the South are mostly oblivious to our hickish speech patterns. It took me moving away for over 20 years and then returning before I truly realized why people mock us.

At first I thought my Fargo-speaking friend was putting us on with her outrage. She was even more offended by my laughter, and more offended still when she found out why I was laughing.

(She was a Swedish-American from rural Minnesota who grew up in the 60s, and the Fargo was strong in this one.)
