Wel, ek's nou al vir 6 jaar uit die republiek, my 6e kersfees buite die republiek, maar nog steeds praat ek Engels met 'n Japie-aksent.

My suster praat met 'n skotse aksent, selfs ek sukkel om haar te verstaan. In singapore is ek altyd gespot oor my aksent deur my non-singpaorean vriende. Hulle het my altyd die "Yarpie" genoem. (Ek dink die regte benaming is Japie, maar weet iemand of Yarpie ook gebruik word).

Hoe dit ook al sy, op die volgende websaait bespreek die Aussies die SAFFER aksent. Lees gerus

Seth Afreken accents are the absolute worst. Right royal turn off, along with dyed blonde hair on women. Superficial and Fake.

English. Now there's an accent to admire.

I always find it funny when someone says something like a "South African Accent is fake" - I mean, fair enough if it doesn't turn you on, but do your ealise ONE thing they AREN'T doing is faking it - it's their normal accent!

It's just different from, say an Aussie accent, very different, so it sounds "fake" to us.

Known many South Africans, and I actually enjoy their accent, while it did sound a little odd to me at first. But for certain, they weren't faking it or putting it on. That's their usual accent!

Yarpie is maar net die Engelse spelvorm van die Afrikaanse woord Japie. Iemand wat nie vertroud is met Afrikaanse fonetika nie het 'n Engelse spelvorm nodig om by die korrekte uitspraak uit te kom. Laat iemand my darem spot oor my aksent...

In Engeland is ek by tye vertel my SA aksent is baie sexy - deels omdat ek my r'e so lekker rol, maar ook omdat ons die vokale op daai hoog Engelse manier maak wat mens baie erudiet laat klink.
