I agree with you completely and I pick up on (and hate) all that American accent too.. but it could be a comprehension issue as well.No. I have given you a proper explanation. But instead of providing an argument you are triggered into insult. It is a real concern about Irishness and the way the Irish are speaking. If this discussion was about the Irish in general and the growing Americanization of the way they speak and the way kids from all counties coming out losing their county accent and starting to sound the same, you'd agree. Well that's what my point and concern is about.
I would like the guy to get back into the accent of his county, he'd even get more popular both here and abroad. Now I know Dave reads these threads, and after I criticised his accent before, he started getting his Irish accent back, and that was great, hopefully he has a read of this and takes onboard the constructive idea I am putting forward here, if he is intelligent and thoughtful, without being sensitive about it, he will realise, this is correct and has a point, and he might take it on. It will be good for his Irish audience, and I think his American audience will love it.
Ever seen someone with an accent from this part of the world being subtitled on American television.. speaking English? I have.
