    TIM MICHIN'S PRONUNCIATION

    This Australian singer is fast at singing and he is famous for his comedic songs. He likes singing bare-foot with wild hair. Here is a clip in which you can listen to his speed in singing and to his connected speech features. I liked it. I hope you enjoy it.

    Try to comment on his pronunciation.

    Doesn't it have one thread already?

    I did enjoy it. I had troubles understanding some words though, especially those less common and/or intentionally mispronounced.

    Re: TIM MICHIN'S PRONUNCIATION

    Maybe I couldn't tell if I didn't already know but I think you can detect his Perth (Australia) accent. It has most features of a fairly strong Australian accent but with the occasional word pronounced in a "posh" British way. Like a lot of non-Americans singing in English he sings with American influences too, so it's hard to hear.

    He also refers to "year 11 ball" which in New South Wales is called a "formal" and in America would be "the prom".

    ETA: Sorry, just realized you said only comment on his vocabulary. I hope it is OK to extend this to his regional vocabulary too.

    I don't think his homework was adequately done for him in the others.
