A sign from the gods

Skip the romantic smooshy stuff

Life update my family and boyfriend's family had odd mental health related crises simultaneously last week, in the worst bit of it we sort of updated each other, hugged and coped and it was the most healthy sad week I've ever felt a part of. Sometimes I'm away from him the first night after an extended stay together and the shift from doing the dishes together to only having the intimacy of texts and a nightly call feels unbearable.

theory: we've experienced widespread linguistic shifts to the point where the 60s and 90s have their own accents (kind of like what's now called the transatlantic in the 50s.) when it's daylight I'll find clips as examples.

But even without examples, do you ever watch stuff from the 90s and notice the characters are pronouncing vowels in a very round way, sort of emphasizing their 's's and wonder if it's happenstance and the actors are all from some arbitrary region?

The pain has subsided enough to go back to an occasional pang. If the forums went away, i'd lose my dating AND medical history. There's something to think about, Buddy!

I'll check back in later.

I think I know what you mean with the accents. I feel like I'd be able to pick out voice clips from 90's movies from accents

Yessssssss

I wonder if 20 years from now people will think we have a different accent

Id bet upspeak and vocal fry would be part of it
1 month ago - Wednesday 9/18/19 - 8:04:47 AM EST (GMT-5)
I don't even know what that means
1 month ago - Wednesday 9/18/19 - 8:45:45 AM EST (GMT-5)
I'll need to find clips of that too!
Weird also to think about how we ourselves sounded different in the past

just got back from the psych, home for a bit & get to document accents now

OK, I remember a few of the pretty ladies on TV in the 90s spoke like if the northeast and california had a baby who pronounced the 's's really softly and raised the pitch of its voice

Exhibit A : 1:25 on is dialogue: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0un...

Exhibit B: 0:49 - 1:28 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mdy...

Exhibit C (early 2000s even): 1:00-1:23 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oDH...

Looking up recent interviews with the actresses or clips where they reprise the role, their voices sound raspier and lower - which could just mean they're older OR they've lost the affectation.

Whatever it is, I don't hear it anymore.

For current trends - here's Emilia Clarke demonstrating vocal fry and upspeak
(vocal fry is the scratchiness, upspeak is essentially sounding like you're asking a question while making a statement)

Going to get some work done and think of examples from the 60s to post later today.

I'm obsessed with her and honestly have noticed chicks with thick voices since then

I'm not hearing this difference you speak of!
1 month ago - Wednesday 9/18/19 - 2:15:15 PM EST (GMT-5)
Do they sound similar to each other to you at all?
1 month ago - Wednesday 9/18/19 - 2:17:37 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'm not sure what to listen for. I don't know how they sound different from people today.

Is it just the 60s and 90s? this is so weird, but I kinda hate old time black and white movies because the way they talk makes me anxious in a weird way.

I'm actually super interested in dialects and accents. It's one of my top weird interests.

The mid-60s and earlier had the mid-atlantic (transatlantic) accent. That was one of the things that went out the window with the boomers' counterculture movement.

You're probably talking about the transatlantic accent here.

Arc: Yep! I referenced the the transatlantic somewhere in the OP. It's definitely weird to me as well, that people speak like everyone does now, who may have had very different affectations as recently as 20 years ago when different ways of speaking were common.

Looking for examples from the 60s now

round vowels, enunciated 's'es, high pitched breathy voice, not necessarily as nasal as we sound today, basically. Almost like surfer-lite. It's a recent decade and a subtle difference, I'm not sure how else to explain it.
- -
'60s-'70s: I always think of Charlie Brown.
Lower pitch, rich and somewhat nasally; big, flat, vowels (especially in long vowels like "night" and "people") and an interesting way of pronouncing 'L's and "T"s:

Examples -
1966: 0:38 and on is dialogue https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i1A...
1960s: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Np...
1970: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NkF...

The links wouldn't post properly until now, sorry
The third post is about prejudice just as a caution.

welp, it's been solved by Fred Armisen it's a little less eerie performed by a comedian.
i now feel at peace with accent evolution and able to sleep.
