I'd say my hubby would help coz he's a kiwi, but to be honest he has a bit of a South African accent too because he lived there for almost 7 years so probably wont help. :)
Mikkiblu - would love to chat and make friends

Yeah, the Maoris sure do have their own accent and the Pakeha their own and then their are a gazillion foreign accents too.

I was reading an article on the Herald site about accents the other day. They are trying to figure out how the Kiwis all developed the "same" accent so quickly. Normally different regions develop different accents, but here it is the same all over, eg. compare the Afrikaans accent in Gauteng vs Cape. The scientists also say that the Kiwi accent is still developing and isn't the "final" accent. The steady influx of immigrants is changing the accent all the time. So maybe the Kiwis will start to say Boerewors properly soon :whistle:  ;D

Although I must say I find people from Otago and Invercargill seem to have a more prominent accent

Talking about Invercargill, I see they have their own exclusive tv channel.  Crazy,  it's like moving back in time, especially the ads.   Sure they sound different to the rest of New Zealand.
