I can’t figure out if dialects and accents that differentiate us from each other are good or bad.
I know some folks take lessons to lose their accent so they can be accepted on some level, say into a broadcasting career or into a group who all share a particular or peculiar way of speaking.
Is this a sad commentary on our capacity to accept the diverse or is this a way to share better with each other?
Is this a trouble to consider or a difference to celebrate?
Is this something that a deaf person has little understanding about or would a deaf person think that’s a dumb question?
