Am I too late for the accent tag thing?
I might be.
So I did 2.
One with the whatever accent I try to have when I speak english...
I sound meh.
And another one, with the good ol' french accent...
I sound horrible.
Enjoy or whatever. Now I can listen to everyone's.

I'm glad that this is in the Regional Differences thread.
I like your accent.

ACCENT DOUBLE REACHAROUND
I admit I was very confused when I started the first link and your accent didn't sound French.
I'm super glad you decided to record one, I knew some of it might be weird to answer since you're a native French speaker (so like, obviously you're not saying "grandma" and "grandpa" you know!) but what kind of terms and pronunciations you'd have learned because you're native French speaker. Like, I was half expecting you to say "trolley" instead of "shopping cart"!


Also I wonder if anyone else is realizing how incredibly weird it is that we call a bug "daddy long legs"?

We call crane flies Daddy longlegs, and there seems to be references back to 1744 of them being called Father Longlegs. So it appears this mystery is lost to time.

I was never really bothered by them until just. I looked them up just and saw a close up of their creepy head. :tastesbad:
I've always hated them and they were common in the winter back home. Normally I only had to worry about them when going in or out of the house 'cause they were attracted to the porch light, but I remember when my BF and I were working our crappy truck stop job, he had left the windows rolled down when he got home from work one time. And when I was leaving for my graveyard shift that night I was scared to get in the car. He came out and tied to shoo most of them away, but well, I was driving 80 down a dark freeway WHEN I REALIZED HE MISSED ONE. :chagrinedamber:
So THAT was fun to deal with! 🙃

We call crane flies cousins, because everyone thinks they're related to mosquitoes, even though they're not.
And my brother the spider expert tells me we call Daddy Long Legs Opilions.

What do you think of mayflies? (Wiki says that they are called "up-winged flies" in the uk. Wiki also says that they are called hadflies or fishflies in Canada and the upper Midwestern U.S. )

I've never heard the term "crane fly"... I call those "mosquito eaters," and I just asked @Avidro and he calls them "mosquito hawks."
