we always get mixed up for poms, in movies when they try to do the Oz accent,
Yeah, that's sometimes because they get Pommie actors to play the parts... like the guy in JAG who had the hots for Mac (and who wouldn't)... he sounded more Pom than Aussie.
And another thing! Not only do the Yanks mess with putting Poms in Oz roles, they messed with the English language and replaced the S with a Z in words: like realize = realise and customize = customise. I mean, what a crock! Not only is it taking liberties with a language that worked perfectly well for centuries... it's only half a job, in that they don't use noze = nose; hoze = hose, and uze = use.
Not only that, smelt was/is perfectly acceptable in 'real' English as the past tense of smell, but that's not good enough for the Yanks... no, they had to insist it is smelled, which is technically incorrect because that's how somebody is described after they peeled one off. I mean, if the past tense of smell is smelt, and the past tense of feel is felt, in following their smelled logic, then why don't they say feeled instead of felt... or worserer instead of worst?
Worse still, when you've learneded proper English wot wos invented by tha English centuries ago, it's bleedin' annoying to have some jumped up, johnny-come-lately American spell checker tellin' yer it's bleedin' well wrong.
