Some new additions have been added to my portfolio in the past couple of weeks.
Experimenting with Type.
Traditional cockney saying Apples and Pears … Stairs. Just trying to get used to how type is formed and representing sayings.
ISTD thinking is taking me down numerous routes with this ‘Sound Bites’ project. Looking into expression, characteristics and accents used in day to day like. It is not about the image this video portrays it is what it is saying. That ‘Uncool’ nature to sound like you know what your talking about. This current habit to add words onto sentences to make them sound as if there a question when they might not necessarily be? “Join me on the band wagon of uncertainty” The urgency to speak with authority.
This video touches on the attachement of words and phrases to the end of sentences. Something I have noticed in my initial study of Accents/Dialects. This urge to put ‘like’ at the end of sentences? is it recognised from certain areas?
interesting video for thought….
Live the language - London
Current study into language/accents has brought me here. The series of videos focuses on ‘living a language’ in London, Barcelona and Paris. The typefaces considered are shown to be relevant to that particular city. Random words from the scene are pronounced in the forefront along with a bracketed breakdown. This relates to trying to breakdown and make a distintive recognition between one accent and another.
