    Hey You Talk Funny!

    [​IMG]

    Hello Allkpoppers.

    Let's call cease fire on the The Great Twice War and talk about something stress free. ;)

    Like people and their speech styles!

    Tell us about your speech/writing style!

    Is there anything interesting/odd/weird/cool about the way you talk or write?


    Me:

    You may have noticed I use a lot of religious imagery/words in my manner of writing.

    I reference the concepts of heaven/angels/devils/etc. and other religious ideas a lot in my writing.

    My curse pattern also reflects religious influence.

    Jesus Christ. Holy smokes. God d-mn. Heavens no. Etc.

    You may be thinking... So?

    Well it's odd because I'm not religious.

    I'm actually atheist (I don't believe in God).

    Neither do I believe in other gods or spirits or the supernatural of any kind.

    But due to where I'm from and how I was raised, (in an almost entirely Christian area) those ideas and words found their way into my vocabulary and how I speak. How I talk about the world is to some extent related through a religious influenced lens even though I am a non-believer.

    Anyway cool right! maybe not

    ;)

    Well slang in new zealand is different..

    I also say words that would be considered bad online, not going to say them with sjws everywhere. But its because new zealand is much more chill.

    @pulchritudinous knows what i mean.. i think lol

    I never write lowercase n's the proper way. They're more like smaller versions of capital N's

    When I write English I used "well" and "though" all the time. I think I also tend to make long sentences and I find my own texts bit heavy to read, maybe it's like that for others also. It's just that my grammar for sure isn't best possible ^^; ... and then this ^^; , yep it's my most used emoticon. I'm not even sure how others interpret it, but it's mix of ^^ and :sweatr:.

    People have criticized me for speaking in a calm and silent way, as if I'm hiding which I haven't realized until I was told so. I also mispronounce words sometimes and forget what I was about to say. As for writing, I guess my inner poet shows sometimes hehe..

    same i never swear in my native tongue but constantly do in english
    i actually have a tendedncy to talk rather loudd, especially if im comfortable around the person im speaking to, i tend to lose awarness of my volume
    all of my friends i learned english from where in east coast so when i speak english, it has a mix of boston, brooklyn, jersey, and my own accent from my native language...and it sounds rather odd

    Do you do it with just "N" or more letters?

    I have a weird way of writing too.

    I make my strokes from the bottom up sometimes rather than the correct way (top down).

    I learned wrong.

    Normally just "N" but if I'm speed writing I notice that I do with "E" and "A" as well. Only when I speed writing tho, like talking notes during a lecture
    I don't know why
    :whatr:

    I use "........" a lot in my sentences and I tend to use emojis a lot since they make me too a bit more energized :)

    And I try to sound more mature than I am :D
