Guys, help, quick! I need a look for when you find out you're gonna have to start working weekends and he's trying to cheer you up

(tbh i didnt know what to put but then admin sydni was like hol up, this’ll fit)

Do you happen to have any pictures of this bea…

Do you happen to have any pictures of this beautiful man w the hair he had in the attack on bangtan dance practice?? I'm desperate pls 💜

yes!! im p sure he took this selfie the same day as that practice

aaand here are some more of joon’s cute bangs + black hair:

1. i think a lot of accents do that with certain letters! for example, american southern accents don’t really put a “g” on the end of words. i once said “pudding” and cat made fun of me and told all of our coworkers.

2. @pekkalastrega send me a voice memo on whatsapp!!! i wanna hear! and i think it’s neat how accents change with emotions, ie. my southern accent comes out much more when i’m mad

3. ??? how in the heck do you get british/australian from southern? iiinteresting.

4. i don’t really think those words are super different? i mean, i definitely have gone to school/college with people who say “trash bin” and almost everyone i know in the south calls it a “roundabout” vs a traffic circle, but i do know people who call it the latter. and obviously i can’t speak for everyone in america

y’all are rad

1. hmm, i think the closest thing i can person…

1. hmm, i think the closest thing i can personally relate that to is like… each of the regions of the state i live in have different accents. they’re all distinctly southern, and like they can understand each other, but we all have different words we use in different ways, i guess? language is NEAT.

2. do they tell you what accent they think you have? that’s interesting – i know you can also pick up accents if you consume them in media enough, but i imagine it’d have to be a lot

3. i imagine you’d pick up an accent how you learned it, but english is my first language and therefore i have no authority on saying so. any NNES wanna weigh in?

My mum is Ukrainian and my dad is Russian. So …

My mum is Ukrainian and my dad is Russian. So growing up I spoke mainly these two languages, with heavy lean on Russian. (The Ukrainian I spoke was a local Ukrainian, which means it was a compilation of Ukrainian, Rusin, German, Polish and a bunch of other languages making it incomprehensible for outsiders) but the one thing I'm ashamed of is that bc I've been living in the EU for years and mostly speaking English now I have a "European" accent speaking Russian 😭

okay maybe i should know this but? is that like a personal shame or is it considered “bad” in general or? 

i think local languages are reeeally fascinating because of how they tend to be developed!

I guess I have a midwestern accent, but it&rsq…

I guess I have a midwestern accent, but it’s more of that “center of the country not really an accent” accent honestly, but I regularly will find myself speaking with an English accent for no reason. Think David Tennant on Doctor Who or Jessica Jones. I used to do it because I thought it was cool when I was a superwholock but now I can’t stop. Please send help.

it’s absolutely an accent if you ask people not from the midwest

also that’s the funniest thing i’ve heard. how long has it been happening????

accents: midwestern, but i lived in new mexico…

accents: midwestern, but i lived in new mexico for years so i've got a bit of that, and when i start drinking i slip into my southside-milwaukee dialect which is,,,,,a lot rougher than how i normally speak. fave linguistic things… milwaukee-midwest accent: great lakes vowel shift, still pronouncing the difference between au and o (like "caught" and "cot"), bubbler, tyme machine, northern wisconsin accents; new mexican accent: "it's all sick" "do u want a coke? what kind of coke?" /nerdmode

iiinteresting! re the coke thing, it’s weird because i think that’s also very commonly associated with the south (ie southeast) and i don’t do that and never have? i def agree there’s a difference between caught and cot, though!

i’ve made people in my office do words from the accent challenge and it gets p serious real quick

about the accent thing: a lot of my family is …

about the accent thing: a lot of my family is southern, while I'm not. So when I go to visit them I find myself slipping into an accent like pretty fast like scary fast. But usually I have the standard mid-western/northern accent from the US and I guess it's an accent, I've never thought it as one but my southern family likes to point it out sometimes. But it's scary how fast I fall into the southern accent when I'm around them for maybe just even a day or two.

oh yeah, that definitely happens!!! admin cat and i both agree that it’s almost a survival tactic to slip into a southern accent when you’re down here, lmao. like… southern people are so protective of their own kind and you’re immediately labeled as an outsider if you ain’t got the accent.

also: mid-western accent is absolutely an accent sadlkjfhs we know y’all

do y’all have accents? which accents? what’s your favorite linguistic thing about your accent?
