A Tale of Two Accents

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

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
