I wanted to check my e-mail and instead of typing my user name, I type Ruslana

I've been accidentally typing or writing Ruslana a lot lately, am I crazy? Maybe, I've lost it.

flipsty,
yes, American accent sounds better to me as well. When we study Phonetics, teachers say, that in GA(General American) the -r- sound is allowed, while in RP(Received Pronunciation)-the standard English, there is no -r-. And since we in BG have many -r- s, GA sounds more natural to me. But I understand RP better, because all our teachers speak RP probably.

General American

I've never heard of this name before. The Standard American accent is the one from the Midwest.

yes, American accent sounds better to me as well.
Not Philly though, right?


while in RP(Received Pronunciation)-the standard English, there is no -r-

That must be the Queen's English.

What type of R does Bulgarian have? Flapped like Russian? Rolled like Spanish? Uvular like French and German? I done forgot (or plum forgot Cowgirl talk).

yes, we studied that it is used in its pure form only in the Parliament and the Royal Court.

And I don't know what is Flapped either, but, yes, our -r- is like the Russian.

The Philly accent sounds very unpleasant to me.

Heah'ya-doo'en? = How are you doing?
Wood'er = water
Yor-unz = yours
Stew-er = store
Steah'nd = stand

Here is an mp3 from a language learning forum:

when you write it it looks far more strange than when I listen to it. It looks familier to me-perhaps I can't distinguish gifferent accents of American. Is this the accent where -t- sound is pronounced almost like -d-, as in "city"? And I forgot whether it is British or American English, where New York is pronounced like /nju juo:k/ or /nu jo:rk/, or I mixed them???

I think it's because in English the difference in how we pronounce Latin characters is significantly different from all the other languages, it's probably the most unique, EA sounds like , OO sounds like etc.

Is this the accent where -t- sound is pronounced almost like -d-, as in "city"?

Actually, T is often pronounced like D in the middle of words, I say cidy.

/nju juo:k/

That one is British.

The one with Ruslana videos on MySpace.

There seems to be a 15 year old Albanian on MySpace, also.

There's a hi5 site with a complicating URL, that Nikoleta likes Timbaland, Eliott Yamin from American Idol and Amistades Peligrosas.

Yesterday I received a beautiful book in the mail (post), from Biblio-Globus (they're store in Moscow is supposedly the largest bookstore on earth) " " :



Audiobooks are supposed to be a great resource for language learners (they say).

Alice ?? In Wonderland-is this it? And now you're not going to read but to listen to it? Strange that it is still called a book I've read it. but as far as I know, there is also a second part, another book.

It's a book with a CD, so I can read AND listen. The English title is "Alice's Adventures In Wonderland" it's always been one of my favorites and the second book is "Alice Through The Looking Glass".

I would really love to Charleston, but I keep looking around the room for hidden cameras or something, thinking someone might see me and think I'm trying to learn Riverdance or something.

http://youtube.com/watch?v=s58iTzznkp0


Goes like this:

1. Step back with your right foot.

2. Kick back with your left foot.

3. Step forward with your left foot.

4. Kick forward with your right foot.

5. Repeat.

I'm not sure about the kick, it looks kind of sideways...

these steps as well as the step-dance have always seemed interesting and very difficult to me-especially because of the speed. It would be nice you to put your own camera in the room and soon we could watch the modern variant of Charleston on youtube
