Anyone need help from a native English speaker?

I'm a native speaker of Midwestern American English, and if anyone has questions
about English and English speaking nations I'd be happy to help as best I can.

English isn't terribly hard, but vernacular English is tricky, so hopefully this
will do some good.

Actually, diversity in English accents is far greater in the United Kingdom.
In the UK, it is possible to guess the accent of someone from 10 miles away while it takes a far greater distance to do that in America.
Moreover, even within America, diversity in dialects decreases the further west you go.

An example of linguistic diversity in the UK:

That is a stupid thing to say and I am now going to spend the next few days working to prove it

Actually I'm getting ahead of myself

You wanna know the reason why things seem to get really boring in the west until you reach California? (which is severely misrepresented though)
Because *nobody* lives there. Seriously. Most of those states are out populated by cities.

And it makes sense that a small country would have every aspect of distance shrunk. It's why some of the small, old American states seem so eclectic.

But uh, yeah keep in mind that the "decrease in diversity" toward the middle-west is true, but for kindof unfair reasons. Those states are often completely empty for hundreds of mile.

I'm still confused why they completely forgot about cali accents, especially surfer and hispanic ones, balling up one of the most populated states with some of the least and declaring them to be similar enough to be unimportant. Odd to me.

I am completing my education; such a depopulated state doesn't have the academic community I need. That state is mostly empty, with a few farmers, if that.

I may move there someday if I ever want a place detached from complicated life; it might be a nice place to retire.

Are you an American?

If so, it was such a terrible thing that has happened in Las vegas.
Were you OK?

Yep, I'm fine. Its disgusting and slightly terrifying, but I guess I should be grateful that it wasn't worse. There were 22000 people packed into a stadium not much bigger than a large gym. If it had been a bombing attack it could have killed hundreds

I'm glad you're safe.
but it was a tragic incident,

Even the Japanese media that has been hardly covered overseas news,
did the case extensively.

I hope that the bereaved can recover from the heartbreak as soon as possible.

How far can you recognize "three" sound?
10m? 100m?

106 :名無しさん@英語勉強中 :2017/12/13(水) 11:19:57.11 ID:ENU6+b4W0.net
If you pronounce "three", can an american hear it from far?
Sounds "th", "s" and "t" would not be heard from far position, I think.
Especially "th".
If you can recognize it, the pronounce method of "th" in educational TV is wrong, I think.
Do you agree?
Or do you explain the right way?

107 :名無しさん@英語勉強中 :2017/12/13(水) 16:15:14.49 ID:P1KCkQbrH.net
>>106
Yes, yes they can. Americans don't have any issue hearing the difference between th and s, and t is too aggressive of a sound to miss.

Additionally, there aren't very many words that can be confused with "three". Perhaps "tree" could be confused with "three", but in most sentences switching the two wouldn't make sense.

If you want to say three, you exhale, moving your tongue from touching the back of your teeth, to slightly outside of your mouth.

108 :名無しさん@英語勉強中 :2017/12/13(水) 21:22:49.32 ID:ENU6+b4W0.net
If I have a lack of a front tooth (an large one), can the "th" sound reach to a man standing 100 m away?
If my 2 front teeth have a slit of 2mm distance, can?

109 :名無しさん@英語勉強中 :2017/12/13(水) 23:46:38.16 ID:/p/sFxwVH.net
>>108
you mean if your front teeth were completely missing?

I don't think you'd be able to make the sound at all>>108

110 :名無しさん@英語勉強中 :2017/12/14(木) 17:51:30.78 ID:nRgiuwoR0.net
I can't believe that.
Japanese people speaks even if they lost a front tooth.

When you say "devastate entire industries",which does this imply?

A:devastate some of the industries in the nation completely.

B:devastate all industries in the nation

This is a quote from President Trump's tweet.
Some people are wondering the meaning of "entire".
They think it implies destroying "certain" sectors of industries "completely".
My opinion is that "entire" just means "whole",
so the sentence means:destroy all industries in the nation.
Which is right?

115 :名無しさん@英語勉強中 :2017/12/17(日) 02:55:05.50 ID:arUHi2cX0.net
>>114
It's A: devastate some of the industries in the nation completely.

116 :名無しさん@英語勉強中 :2017/12/17(日) 03:42:09.60 ID:qpPLH5g20.net
Thank you. So that means wiping out textile industries, for instance, and never refer to whole industries.
Could you add some explanations for it?
Maybe it is too clear for native speakers to explain but I'd be happy if I can hear the reason.

The original tweet is here.

>never refer to whole industries

I'd like to correct this sentence to make my point clear as follows.

>never refers to "all" industries

Sorry for continuous post.
The very first definition of the word might be the answer.
I maybe completely misconstrued the meaning of the word.

Don't listen to anything Trump says. He literally just lies when he feels like it.


Regardless, if someone were to say some event "devastated entire industries" within a nation, the meaning is a little complicated.


This event would seriously harm some industries to the point of collapse, and industries connected to the industries harmed;

However it would not completely disable all industries.

That phrase would usually be used for massive economic or environmental disasters, or perhaps the result of wars,
