its not a question of accent, but the grammar..first of all, they do not need to speak english...and next, if they speak, they need to do justice to the language.not all persons need to be well versed in english...seemaji is not educated, she does not feel shamed to say she does not know how to read or write, she is so honest, no show off...Germans give a damn to english...but these women speak english to show off that they can speak in english...but the day, they face someone who knows proper english, they will be utterly screwed...my plain question...why speak in English, if you dont know the language..its like, .if one does not know how to dance, why claim and show off ...this discussion is very much valid, as being a viewer, I can ask "why showing disrespect to a language"..
i do not get it either, if u do not know the language properly, its ok, but why ruin it by speaking wrong english?
i have no problem with accents either, all of us have an accent, even the British also have british accent, except may be veena's ASSSSSSSSSSHHHHHHHHMIT ()
The problem is these people in TV try to pose as if they are native English speakers, when clearly no one expects that from you . We get it, you r celebrities and people want to see how progressive you are, but this is hilarious.
As far as accent goes, i have no issues. some of my wonderful professors have weird accents, be Indian, or italian or german, so its ok., but if you are cautious and u r speaking slowly then the accent can be corrected.
if you hear the word "schedule", a german will pronounce it in a way, an American in another way, a British in some other and an Indian..
the question here is not about accent or about ST ..its in general about the english of the women contestents...the word "stiletto" is just an example to start the discussion..
exactly and all of them are correct. a normal german guy has trouble pronouncing 'this' and they say 'zis'
a greek or italian will extend the shorter vowels.(you know what i am talking about)
closer home, my tamil friends mostly say yem instead of m, and i find that natural. if some one all of a sudden speaks in a diff accent , the person sounds so fake . and they get caught trying to pronounce 'w' or 'v'.
while writing you have time to think and write, while speaking you do not. so if you are not very good in a language, u tend to make mistakes. all these are understood, but then why show off, clearly when you are not even allowed to speak in english just for the sake of speaking it?
and not now, its been like that from day 1.
specially when veena starts her ' i love you " stuff in english, i want pause that part and ffd it. and also sara. uff my god. Sweta ,i feel, is relatively better.
