It’s placed the Australian in either New York or southern Florida, and actually I can accept this.
So @hisnamewasbeanni and I are apparently from more or less the same area, without actually speaking anything that even vaguely resembles the same language.
In conclusion, Australia doesn’t know what it’s doing when it comes to language.
Alternate conclusion: surveys designed to evaluate American dialects may not work perfectly when conducted on non-Americans?
Nailed it. Rockford and Aurora are like an hour away from where I’ve lived my whole life. Uncanny.
