The French speak English with their unique French accent, and so do the Russians, Japs, Koreans etc. And they do it with their fair share of pronunciation inaccuracies etc.
What's the big deal when Siingaporeans speak Singlish? Even if it's at Ms Singapore World pagaent, do we hear participants from each country speak in "Queen's English"?
What I am trying to understand about the Ris incidence: I know, that if I take a lousy photo (one that makes the person on the other side of the camera look not so nice) I would delete it rather than show it to the world. People have asked me about wanting to be shot from this side or that side because its their best side.
If I took that "photo" of Ris, I wouldn't have put it up for the world to look at what is a funny incident (I personally see the incident as funny, nothing to do with Ris being able to speak proper English / Sing-ish or whatever). That video didn't make Ris look nice.
Which one of us would do that to our children or spouses?
Not to count like this Japanese guy?
what ris did was, not only her accent is a forced one with tonal ranges flying all over the place and her speech content...i'm surprised i eve finished listening!
I dun think it matters what language/dialect Ris speaks.
Its painfully obvious that she lacks basic public speaking skills and wit. She over-compensates by trying to be 'interesting' and trying to fake a god-only-knows accent. Her mannerism and poise needs to be polished as well.
Frankly she is no different from those American teenage bimbos you see on the numerous trashy progams on MTV. Sure they speak in relatively perfect English. But 30 secs into hearing them speak and I want to reach for a shotgun.
All you fans of Rissie...
