Following up on the quote of the day: Sometimes I have to pronounce English words while speaking in German, to a German. This can happen when I order a "Singapore Sling" in a bar, or talk about a "public viewing" of a
soccer game football match. Or, when driven to extremes by late-night hunger, and the only place open is a Subway shop, which offers "Turkey Breast" or "Italian B.M.T." sandwiches. To make myself understood, I have to pronounce these English words with a fake German accent. Otherwise, I get blank looks. It’s creepy, I tell you. Even creepier is having to pronounce my last name — which is a German word — the way Germans would pronounce it, instead of pronouncing it in the flat, nasal American way I learned it.
Maybe you can file this under ‘experiences native English speakers should have more often.’
