Czech accent example

Recommended Posts

Here is a good example of a Czech accent speaking English, for all those Chernarussians out there.

http://sandymillin.wordpress.com/2011/06/18/pronunciation-problems-for-czech-speakers-of-english/

Chernarus is based off of the Czech culture, and I encourage using some easy to remember Czech words like "Ano!" for yes.

Notes:

1. A Czech speaking English tends to pronounce silent letters, like the g in -ing, and the -b in bomb.

2. They replace w's with v's.

3. They replace the th sound with a d,f, or t.

4. The stress is on each first syllable of the word, with the last word in the sentence emphasized.

5. It is a kind and restrained accent, with very precise pronunciation of each sound.

6. The r in the middle of a word is usually rolled, almost replacing them with a d, while the ending r's are usually pronounced normally.

how do you compare a actor or director to the average czech?

A Czech director has the same accent as a Czech mechanic or soldier, I'd imagine..

It's just a good example to study and use as a base to practice a more authentic sounding accent if you RP on VOIN.

As a player currently playing as a Chernorussian, this was particularly helpful. I have leant towards text lately, as its really difficult to pull off such an accent when you have a strong Essex accent, but I will work at it. My main source of material for the accent was Niko Bellic from GTA 4.

Thanks for the thread necro. I would never have thought to search for this. :D

I haven't seen this before. Milos Forman is really not an example of the average Czech person when it comes to their accent and general skill of speaking English. A far more relevant, at least accent wise, example is this:

Thanks for the link. It was hard for me to find Czech accents speaking English back when I made this. I'll put that in the OP when I'm back at my desk

Thanks for the feedback. I thought I'd screwed up in some other, more egregious way.
