  • I’m taking applicants for sex partners. I need to know who has zero regional diction. My preference is for someone who sounds like a robot and completely devoid of all emotion.

  • I’m going to need all 3 boxes checked. Please work on your robot skills,  and then you are welcome to re-apply in the future.

  • It's about as general American as you can get with the slightest hint of left coast.

  • But we must all conform and sound the same. It’s the only way.

  • That's the only way we'll achieve true equality. It's our destiny.

  • It really is the only way. Once we get rid of all regional accents,  then we must move on to clothing. All people should wear black pants and black t shirt. Sweaters for people in colder climates. No shorts for people in warmer climates though, too provocative.

  • I'm willing to give up any sense of identity for the good of humanity. We'll have an international day of clothes burning where we'll bid farewell to the old days when we were oppressed by things like colors and textiles.

    Impossible project.

    Fifty years ago it might have been the BBC news presenter's voice in England,
    the Edinborough accident in Scotland,
    the educated in Australia,
    perhaps the Philadephia in the USA.

    Nowadays linguists acknowledge that no accent is value-free - every accent by definition indicates its origin.

    The accent that sounds the most "neutral" is the one that surrounds you most of the time,
    most likely the one where you live or where you grew up. This post was edited by inky at June 13, 2019 5:17 AM MDT

  • Just need a good diction couch. I like the word diction. It’s almost as good as platypus and kumquat.
