This is sort of a silly, geeky explanation of a New Zealand accent: http://youtu.be/cr1TUE1doJ8

Yes, we are all too familiar with that 'eccent' here. The fush and chups. We can always pick a Kiwi and they often wonder how we know. They think their accent is 'normal'.
I recall posting her 'to die' joke on this forum some time ago, when we were discussing the Australian accent.

Oh dear!
If I hear a "North American" accent, I always guess that they are Canadian. USA people don't seem to mind being mistaken as Canadians but the reverse appears not to be true. Here, we are only 5 miles from Wales... :)
