It's called Foreign accent syndrome and it's more common that people realise.
Foreign Accent Syndrome Gives Sufferers an International Sound - ABC News
I have one friend that always goes 'Is it sex o'clock yet?'
Usually gets a reply from me that sounds like a very grumpy old dog whos just been woken up by a little kid - AKA growling, and a bunch of swearwords
Ive got a friend who has earned the name Chilly-bin, and her sister I call Jandals. That stopped the cracks pretty soon!! I still call them jandals, and whenever Aussies talk about wearing their thongs (pfft) I get images of them wearing underwear on their feet. I usually end up saying so too.
Well, I didnt speak english until I got to primary school, so through school I had a bit of an accent. Now apparently I just sound like a wog (I can say wog because I am one ) haha. I dont think I do though... Until I hear myself on tape - ugh.
I'm a bit of an oddity. LOL
I have a very wide, variety of frends who all come from different countries/etc.
&.. I tend to pick up on their accents alot haha!
John, Mubark, Motasim and Sudde are some of my closest guy friends who originate from Africa - its so... CUTE to hear them talking to eachother in their language sometimes (Although they know english perfectly) LOVVVEEE their accent.
Then Linda & Lena - the Hmong sisters. I know a bit of Hmong and when they convo in Hmong, I can pick out phrases and remember them. I LOVE their accent too.
OH. I LOOOVVVVEEE the NZ accent! My guyfriend Sean - is a kiwi - hearing him talk is awesome! People always say stuff like "Say 'i have a wooden deck'" which comes out as 'd*ck' haha!
I have a very aussie accent basically, but I do pick up on other peoples accents and can speak like them for awhile

Men and women alike just swooned at my aussie accent in the states. The barmaid I gave my half eaten tube of vegemite to wanted me to sit there just reading the phone book lol.
Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.
fully sik wogs are the ones who have that stupid forced accent, for example Oh ma gawd bro dats so hektic.... my brothers in law fall into this category
its bizare my husband is the 2nd eldest yet does not have this accent, but the eldest and 2 youngest do, go figure. (if my husband spoke like that I would smack him with my shoe)
Whats even worse is hearing girls speak with it. Does anyone actually know who made up this accent? it seemsto cover Lebs,Greeks,Itals,Serbs Egyptians + so many more and even some Aussies at times.
Its not just limited to western Syd either
