No, not really. Hence the ";)". Although my speech tends to adapt to the person I'm speking to. If I speak to a non-native English speaker or to myself, I speak American English, but when I talk to a British-speaking person, I lose the r:s and even get some [?]s. I suppose it sounds funny although I can't really hear myself and my co-workers don't say anything. Perhaps they're just being kind. :-P ||| daniel _________________________________________________________________ Hämta MSN Explorer kostnadsfritt på
