I swear, every language always has

  • the sophisticated accent where everything they say sounds intelligent even if they’re saying the dumbest shit imaginable
  • the funny accent where anything they say is hilarious even if they’re describing how they’re gonna murder you
  • the unintelligible accent where even native speakers can’t make out what they’re saying half the time
  • the sexy accent where everything they say makes you want to rip your pants off and fling your crotch in their face
  • the average accent which is the accent everyone typically thinks of when the language gets mentioned

ambedo n. a kind of melancholic trance in which you become completely absorbed in vivid sensory details—raindrops skittering down a window, tall trees leaning in the wind, clouds of cream swirling in your coffee—which leads to a dawning awareness of the haunting fragility of life.


i love talking and languages and accents and laughs and how people have different pronunciations for different words and how people all have different laughs and i just really love voices
