Do native English speakers read /int/ posts in their respective accents? Do they imagine their accents?
For example, do Brits read American posts in a Texan accent?
>>
I read them in my voice in my head. Every post, unless I know it's written by a nigger then I read it in my head like an ooga booga nig nog degenerate

No. But I do read Australian posts as if I had -40 IQ.

I read them in an American accent I guess. Unless a Brit or Oz is writing in an obnoxiously British/Australian way. Example being: Oi mate u'll hook yah in the gob, swear on me mum.

Almost every Australian I read in Zyzz's voice, with the exception of the incensed SJW and politically angsty ones, which I read as girly Lelbourne poofcakes or chink immigrant voices

Brits I give a LADS ON TOUR accent. The SJW and political ones I sound out like Corbyn or paki accents

Americans I just read as annoying teenager accents, except the really edgy ones I read like "heh, nothin personall, kid" type mallgoth voices

Canadians I read as diaspora accents

Germans can't pronounce it. There's a video on youtube where they try to pronounce it and only one of them manage (by cucкfeed or someone like that).

They're not missing out on much 2bh. A book too long for its content and an alcoholic US president.

I don't really read anything with any accent, unless the accent is specifically part of the conversation and/or the post seems stereotypical for a country.

Like, if an American says something absolutely insane about guns and hamburgers, I'll start reading it in an American accent. If a Québecker types perfectly normally in French but says "marde" at some point, my brain just automatically reads everything with a Québec accent because it's funny.

Nah, it's the whole "uirrel" thing.

Squirrel seems like it should be pronounced, well, "skwee-rell", but it's not. On top of that, having a "w" and a "r" so close to each others is *really* difficult for native speakers, it just never ever occurs in our language - heck, both German & French don't even have an English "r", we use a guttural "r" so that's some added difficulty.

Many others. But depends a bit on the level of english of the person and also the region they come from.

As a rule, BRs have trouble with th. Think, thought and others all are difficult words

Do people actually speak the words that they read in their head? I don't read posts in any accent.

If it's shitty broken English I'll read it in the accent of the poster's country, but otherwise it's generally in my own voice. Unless it's a Brit or Australian. I read it in their accent because it's fun
>>
>>51198757
As far as native English-speaking accents, definitely British, then Irish, then Australian. Scottish accent is easiest

Which American accent?
>>
New York/New Jersey accent is most intimidating
>>
My inner voice sort of has an accent, I guess, since it follows American intonation and American pronunciation rules, but it's not very pronounced.

So to answer your question, I read everything in an American accent.
>>
>>51204549
Scottish is easiest? What the fuck? No. The easiest are the ones that are most similar or that we're exposed to the most (like British RP)

I don't have an accent voice in my head. What the fuck is this nonsense? It immediately turns into concepts, not someone speaking it to me.
>>
>>51210360
>concepts
I've heard about people not thinking in words, but in "concepts", but it just sounds like a lot of bullshit to me. I think almost exclusively in words and I tend to vocalize everything that I read and if I don't do that I don't really understand what I'm reading.

I read everything exactly as if I were to read it out loud, but just in my head.
>>
>>51210683
I don't have an inner dialogue when reading. I automatically associate the words with their meanings.
>>
>>51210848
Well, you never had to bother learning English, since it's your native language. I guess I force myself to read everything out in my head in order to improve my fluency and my accent.

I have few people to speak English with, so if I didn't think in English my English skills would be pretty shit.

But since I have been thinking in English for several years, I'm perfectly fluent now.
>>
>>51196933
I forget what that voice is called in psychology, I just call it my thinking voice. I speak like a canadian but my thinking voice has an gay english accent for some reason.
>>
>>51210848
>>51210360
This. I don't have a voice in my head unless I read something extremely British/Aussie like "Oi imma go to th pub n have me sum fush in chips
