The New Zealand earthquake death toll is turning out worse than anyone thought

I have been following it on Foxtel, It's very quaint to hear those Kiwi accents, if they didn't re-arrange the way they pronounce their vowels they would sound like Aussies or south Africans.

A becomes E ... I becomes u and so on

My ex brother in law is a New Zealander and when he spoke i always thought his I sounded like E.
Other countries probably think we sound strange with how we pronounce words to.
I have my own language .. gibboish:2fun::2fun:

I wonder how that other Aussie is going, you know the one that's always bashing at his keyboard and looking for Fred
