Which Indo-European language has the most difficult intonation to imitate, in your opinion? Swedish, British English, Russian, Italian?

Swedish has tones so I suppose it is quite hard to pronounce it properly

Of all the European languages I've studied a bit, Swedish has by far the hardest pronunciation I've come across. On the other hand, Russian I've found to be quite clearly spoken, easy to pronounce and not particularly harsh either.

Pronunciation and intonation are two different aspects in phonology...A language can have a hard pronunciation and an easy intonation and the other way round...

why are there so few people interested in intonation?

For me, the hardest intonation to imitate is French, because I'm not a gay and it feels weird to pretend to be one.

"I'm not a gay..."

Englisch ist die Sprache der Schwulen.
L'anglais est la langue des tapettes.

"I'm not a gay [ BAWAWAWAH ! ] and it feels weird to pretend to be one [ TOO LATE, LOSER, YOU USE ENGLISH, LOL!!!!!]."

. Pour dire ça en anglosexuel, faut être gonflé ou pédé comme 36 phoques
