    Some studies are indicating that language facility (and especially multi-lingualism) may help delay the onset of dementia.

    Seems a good thing, ne' pas? Lang lebe das Geriatric Forum.

    The thing I like about Australians Robbie is that they speak English without an accent. Pommies and Yanks have a pretty broad accent but you Scots sound like your speaking another language. Can't understand a word you're saying. Next time you hear an Aussie speak listen to how clear and unaccented it is.

    I speak to Aussies every day and I can distinguish absolutely no accent. If I speak to a Pommie or a Scotsman I can distinguish a very strong accent.

    OK one of two reasons for that. 1) you sound like they do or 2) you're deaf.

    I know you fly the Aussie flag so I'm going with #1. 😉

    Hey....you're probably right. I just thought us Aussies spoke without an accent. Good point. Never thought of that.
