Accents

I can tell Petra's a New Zealander because I overheard her asking Travis for the heckey sec (hackey sac) the other day.  She also says hee-ah, thee-ah, everywhee-ah (here, there, everywhere) with a conspicuous lack of "r's".

I can tell she's Canadian because she says carry and Gary to rhyme with blurry and furry.  And because she pronounces house and out with that wonderful Canadian "w" (howse, owt).

    Adorable. Sofia has a funny accent. Some of her words come out British-like but mostly American. I can tell she has picked up some Australian things already, too. She should have an interesting accent after being here a while. People always ask me, "What kind of accent IS that?"
