A Tale of Two Accents

Posted by T. Greg Doucette on Mar 25, 2010 in Randomness

It’s been truly, truly humbling to have both regular readers here at law:/dev/null and my fellow Legal Eagles enjoying the performance I posted yesterday of my closing argument in NCCU Law‘s annual Mary Wright 1L Closing Argument competition :)

But there was one unexpected side effect to folks who don’t normally hear me talk all of a sudden watching me on video: ¬†apparently I have completely different accents depending on the venue :beatup:

I mentioned on Monday that I was running for Treasurer of our Student Bar Association, and on Tuesday all of the candidates had an opportunity to give speeches to about 50ish students. ¬†The video from my particular speech is below — which I’m told is how I normally talk.

The odd thing is that I generally don’t “hear” myself when I give a speech, so I don’t even notice the accent (or lack thereof) at any particular point in time. Not entirely sure where it comes from or where it goes…

On a totally unrelated side note, sorry for bombarding y’all with videos of me over the past few weeks! I’ll probably go on a video hiatus here shortly and stick with text entries for the next little while :)

I’m off to go work on UNCASG meeting prep. Have a great night everybody! :D
