    Australians seem to draw out and "chew" their vowels. It's interesting how regional dialects develop.

    It's interesting how we learn language. I was listenting to an NPR program the other day and they were interviewing immigrants to Australia. (I guess they have lots of them that don't really want to assimilate the culture.) One woman was from an asian country. She had broken "english"........but she had an Australian accent. It's to be expected, but just interesting how when we learn language, we learn exactly the dialect we hear. I guess that makes sense.
