And this was their pronunciation of ''sari''.

Actually, most Britains, Australians, and New Zealanders tend to say /'so:ri(:)/ as well. So, it's not just a Canadian thing.

Perhaps the "o" is a bit shorter in British than in Canadian speech. Therefore, British= /'sori(:)/. But, then again, the British tend to speak a bit faster than Canadians after all.

Really, I was under the impression that North American English is faster than British English as we don't tend to draw out vowels as long as the British like to.

I ve also heard americans saying /surry/ maybe its part of their trend to reduce vowel sounds to the schwa

Seinfeld was born in Brooklyn, raised in Long Island. He's got the stereotypical Jew from Long Island accent.

Do you guys know where Adam Sandler's accent is from?
mjd   Tuesday, February 24, 2004, 20:34 GMT
I think Adam Sandler is from Conneticut.
HongKonger   Tuesday, February 24, 2004, 20:52 GMT
Then, does he have a typical "Connecticut accent", if there is one?

His accent sounds funny to me.

Adam Sandler is from Brooklyn, NY. He does have a bit of a Brooklyn accent, but beyond that, he just has a funny voice. It's part of his schtick. Not all people from Brooklyn speak like Mr. Sandler.

He is Jewish as well. Different ethnicities in New York have slightly different accents.
