Where is this speaker from?

>>hmm you sure thats not 'brother' and not bother ...<<
It's certainly not 'brother'. It's: 'Bother, father spilled hot coffee in the car park.'

>>well the way they pronounce the vowels ... and I got a few ppl around here to actually say the phrase ... almost matchs.<<
Do they make 'bother' sound like 'brother'?
ec   Tue Sep 13, 2005 6:41 pm GMT
actually the reverse .. makes brother .. sound like bother ...

Ah. No. This speaker makes a clear distinction between 'brother' and 'bother'.

Rom   Wed Sep 14, 2005 2:33 pm GMT
Hmm. It's really that difficult?

I didn't think so, but it's not exactly the most obvious accent. My guess is Canadian.
Rom   Wed Sep 14, 2005 3:45 pm GMT
OK, it might be Canadian. But which province of Canada?
Tom K.   Thu Sep 15, 2005 1:56 am GMT
All I can tell is that it's not from the Maritime Provinces. Other than that I don't know; as far as I know Canadian speech isn't very different west of Montreal.

Well... I'm from Toronto and I can tell you that people who live in metropolitan Canada speak like that, but when you start heading out into the smaller towns the speech becomes more "traditionally" Canadian (aka Newfie). I find that this is true all over North America... in big cities the speech is generally more "Generic North American", like this person, but you start getting into more pronounced accents in the smaller cities and towns.

All I can say is that I didn't hear anything that would be inconsistent with standard urban Canadian English west of the Maritimes. It could possibly be Toronto.

It could be from somewhere else, but that would mean I missed something important.
