A Village in Victoria's Central Highlands
I love Neil Finn. Your "FUNN" was funny. Isn't it odd how the NZ vowels are so flat? South Africa can be a bit like that too.
CraigWe have a Kiwi at work - she's been in Oz for over 30 years and she would still say Nil Funn.With the small population, the Nation achieve some amazing results around the world.
When I was in New-Zeland, I could understand "their" english really well but I had to translate it sometimes to my american born husband. Now Australian english is another story. I understand my Aussie girlfriends well but sometimes in movies, I really need the subtitles. I love Tim too.(I still have problems signing on some blogs so I will just add an open ID).
Nadege - You certainly have travelled the world.I actually watch Aussie movies with sub-titles myself sometimes and I always used sub-titles with the West Wing, not because of the accent - I just didn't want to miss any of the fantastic script writing.
Love to get feedback so no reason to be shy - have your say.
