australian vowel


It All In The Arrrrrrrs

a: Australian vowel ~
b: Boston accent

What: "one of the most obvious things I've noticed about Australian singers who sound American (to me) is the long 'a' vowel - in most American regional accents this sounds to Australians as though it has an audible R sound at the end of it - 'carrr parrrk' - whereas in an Australian accent that vowel is like a Boston accent only more so. There are other things as well, of course."
