    As a Dutch person (or as you call it linguist), I must say: He speaks a lot of languages. Like 8 or 9 and many with different roots. Like Arabic, English, Xhosa, German etc. And getting the rithm and sound of a language is an integral part. It helps if you grow up bilingual to get out from the absoluteness of your “own” language. Then you can switch into one language and keep the rithm and sound of the other. Doubt he ever tried it, but he can probably speak German with an Arabic accent too.

    I just learned today that a lot of the rice that Americans eat is grown in the southern part of the United States, and this rice was once researched by China Dr. Yuan Nongping in the United States. He solved the problem that Americans eat rice expensive.

    US government should stop promoting overseas hate wars and creating overseas wars, and should return to the era of peaceful diplomacy

    The values and economic models of these plans for wars and racial hatred are too distorted and are not conducive to the future peace and development of all mankind.

    It is time to stop and turn our attention to peaceful development, social welfare, environmental protection, new energy, people’s livelihood, and food crisis, instead of overseas wars and racial hatred, religious hatred, and political hatred.
    Hatred does not solve the crisis, it only exacerbates the collapse of the human world and is a form of self-destruction.
    Only peaceful development is the way out and hope for the future.

    The economic hardship, unemployment and the loss of jobs caused by covid is enough to push people into financial venture’s. I’m taking a trip into investing because I’ve lost so much during this pandemic.

    It’s actually raise and lower the volume. And former model C schools are in no way private schools.

    I love Trevor’s accents. I’ve use to play with accents. Like music, some ppl have a ear for it. Every culture has its own sound, pitch, melody, chores, etc. Trevor’s great.

    I believe it makes communication easier.

    When I visit my family in the South, I’ll go back to full Southern drawl in mere minutes, but when I return home, it can take weeks to readjust to the local accent. Because I’ve lived in Arkansas, California, Michigan, Oregon, and I’m married to a Jewish New Yorker (oy ve!) my accent gets all jumbled. People can’t figure out where the heck I’m from, and it’s funny to watch them try to guess.

    I don’t have a gift for plausible accents, however when I was a nursing aide I found that when I’d speak to the residents in a similar speech pattern to theirs they’d be more inclined to trust me to clean them up. Most of them came here from Mexico, and I grew up near West Texas. I’d use the more formal sounding clipped speech pattern when speaking with them instead of the sloppy Southwestern pattern I grew up with. It works!!

    You’ve shown this one before, Trevor (many many months ago). How many times are you going to milk this stuff?
