Accentuate The Point

| OK, USA | Learning | June 5, 2015

(I am in a first-year French class. The professor is a native of France and, while fluent in English, speaks with a heavy accent. The student in this exchange is a friend who is from Oklahoma and speaks with a thick drawl. He has just finished reading a sentence in French.)

Professor: “No, no, no! You are speaking French with an Oklahoma accent!”

Student: “Well, why not? You speak ‘Oklahoman’ with a French accent.”

Professor: *pauses, thinks* “You have a point.”
