G'day mate: 'Lazy' Australian accent caused by 'alcoholic slur' of heavy-drinking early settlers'

Australian "drawl" created from interactions between early settlers that were frequently "spiked with alcohol", claims communication expert

The distinctive Australian accent is the result of a “drunken slur” caused by the heavy drinking of the early settlers, according to a communication expert from the country. [...]

“The average Australian speaks to just two thirds capacity – with one third of our articulator muscles always sedentary as if lying on the couch; and that's just concerning articulation,” he wrote.

“Missing consonants can include missing ‘t’s (impordant), ‘l’s (Austraya) and ‘s’s (yesh), while many of our vowels are lazily transformed into other vowels, especially ‘a’s to ‘e’s (stending) and ‘i’s (New South Wyles), and ‘i’s to ‘oi’s (noight).”

Most experts believe the Australian accent – known for its flat tone, nasality and elision of syllables - developed from the mix of dialects found in the early colony, whose residents included convicts and settlers from across Britain and Ireland.

Various myths have arisen to try to explain certain features of the Australian drawl, including the claim that Australians mumble to avoid swallowing flies.

Nah mate, its just "straya"..

I just got off the phone to my father and he is very Australian like the OP.. My brother and i imitate him on the phone to each other.. "Gday mate, its ya fattda"

This guy on the train the other day asked me a question about some homeless people he saw, i thought he was from over seas cause i couldnt understand a thing he said, he was from the country.. I am well spoken.. I have never said gday once in my life.

So yeah, diff accents in diff places to an extent.. But not as extreme as in the USA.. Boston? Louisiana? New Jersey?

I don't buy it.

People will always find a way to make/drink hooch of some sort, and we all still go on talkin' ~ and more or less being understood.

I'd like to see those yo-yo's take a stab at ALL the dialects, in the UK itself as well as the US and anywhere else English is spoken.

Yeah, the article comes from the UK, and wow, do they have some slanguage going on.
So does the US.
People from Louisiana with the Cajun thing, or older Floridian natives from inland, you have to really strain your ears to get some of it.
Finland Svensk is also quite different from the Swedish version, where they sound like they speak it with a French accent and a big ass piece of lung butter in their throat.

I doubt it's the alcohol. If that was the case we'd see a lot more languages with the same slur drunk.gif

I was wondering how the English 'Oy' word(?) came about and now I know. Perhaps a combination of laziness and drunkenness.
