    Thank heavens for making a difference between Mexican Spanish and Chilean Spanish. Not something you see very often. I devour these videos.

  • Molly FC (1 day ago)

    I wonder what people think of Pedro Pascal as Oberyn's imitation of a Chilean accent

    Jennifer Lawrence does what I call "a general nonexistent Eastern European accent"

  • RaidsEpicly (6 days ago)

    I love his casual Xhosa flex during the wakanda section, as he actually does the correct click. I'd love to see a video of him just doing some accents for fun and talking about them.

  • Kammy Hornsby (Feb 7, 2019)

    I love when people know a ridiculous amount about obscure things. Now I’m going to binge these vids

  • Kammy Hornsby (6 days ago)

    Exactly!! One of the primary definitions of the word of obscure is “not well known”, which suggests that something that is obscure is not common knowledge. My mother-in-law studied linguistics as her major, and not even she can speak this knowledgeably on the subject. It is not common knowledge, or “well known” subject matter for the vast majority of people (including some specialists). I’m not sure why people feel the need to behave in such a dunce manner for the sake of being a know-it-all. If someon...

    NorthernLights is correct, though. A well established science that's available at nearly every university isn't an "obscure thing". It's just an area of expertise. In the same sense, medicine isn't an "obscure thing", but only experts know ridiculous amounts about it.

    I would entrust my life to this man

  • Matthew Pezzulich (Sep 17, 2018)

    Please never end this series. The amount of knowledge and care this series has is incredible!!

  • mook_butt (Mar 15, 2019)

    100% agree

  • MissChanandlerBong12 (Dec 10, 2018)

    I grew up in the Pacific Northwest and it wasn't until I watched this that I realized that cot and caught could be pronounced differently. I'm shook.

  • Molly FC (1 day ago)

    I always catch flack for the way I say words like "bag" and "wagon" pretty much any word with A followed by G. Sounds like "beg" or "weygon"

  • Plumpest Pigeon (4 days ago)

    +Sarah CarneyAnother Aussie here, can confirm we pronounce Caught as Cort really emphasing an 'r' sound.

    Everyone: Hong Chau's Vietnamese accent is so racist!Hong Chau: I'm Vietnamese

  • Júlia (Mar 28, 2019)

    OH so erik’s got a tattoo?? AND a beard?? 100000x hotter

  • Fatima De Orta (6 days ago)

    Júlia I want him to teach me EVERYTHING

  • Charlie Wright (Feb 7, 2019)

    Jennifer Lawrence’s accent in Red Sparrow was tragic. It was just so over the top.

  • noir (5 days ago)

    lmao y’all mad

  • tbd (Apr 17, 2019)

    Over-the-top is her acting and personality. She is horribly overrated.
