random thought: enunciatiation

My tongue is too big for my mouth.
My lips are dry and stick to my teeth.
I’m speaking through a mouthful of gravel.
My vocabulary is lacking.

As a Canadian, I think that people with English accents sound more intelligent than do Canadians or Americans. Is it therefore true that to the ears of the English, Americans and Canadians sound less intelligent?

I perceive English accents to sound lyrical and intentionally slow-paced; I hear my own voice as a rushed, nasally mumble.

Take a breath. Slow down. Enunciate. Use your words.
