What's more important to you? Pronunciation or the content of speech? What we value says more about us than the person we admire/look down upon for their accent. Also, all accents are apparently not equal: English spoken in French/Spanish accent, muy sexy; South Indian, not quite. #RajinikanthJudging YouHard
The other day, I witnessed an individual lecturing a [very likely] underpaid and uninterested waiter on how to perfectly pronounce “en-chi-la-da”. At a Mexican restaurant in Dhaka. That.
Must have felt like a major accomplishment. Shocking that the Nobel Committee hasn't called yet.
