Domi Posted October 18, 2005 Share Posted October 18, 2005 Partially the last posts here: http://chosenofmystra.net/forums/viewtopic.php?t=1709 and Kulyok's comment on writing for more than one character made me think: How many accents and modes of speech are utilized in BG/mods? I can think off hand about the following: 1) 'Old English'ish - mainly substitutes thou/thee for you, adds doth/dost and uses 'tis, 'twas etc. 2) Dwarvish'ish - Scottish-ish (?) Mainly substitute of ye for you 3) Cutsey version of the above: substitute ya for you, and 'eating the -ing's' (ie somethin') and using conversational verbs (dunno) 3) I will never contract anything mode 4) 'commoner speech' in BG that I can't reproduce, but it uses the substitute of consonants rather than vowels (ie Tranzig in BG1) From the literature, the most memorable accents were: 1) In Jordan, the Illianer's accent (I do be going downriver) 2) Troll's accent in Williams (mainly characterized by long unusual nouns insterad of adjectives, ie I will do it with speediness) Link to comment
