What does English sound like to non-English speakers?
Among the English-speaking population, we often characterize other languages as having a distinctive, stereotyped sound. Swedish, for example, sounds like the Swedish Chef with his “BORK BORK BORK!” Likewise, the sound ”ching chong” is used (often in a racist manner) to characterize the sound of Chinese languages to English speakers.
Is anyone here a non-English speaker? Can you tell me what sound is used to characterize or stereotype English-speakers in your culture or language?
