[Background Music] There are so many different types of people who live in Brooklyn. Brooklyn is an amazing place because of that. So we're going to go for a very stereotypical, general Brooklyn accent. Just to give you a flavor of it. So you put your lip corners really far forward. And it's a very urban sound. You see? In my oral posture that my lips are doing a lot of the work. It's also fun to notice that the Brooklyn accent, where your lip corner's very far forward, is also very similar to that urban London sound. That cockney sound. So Saul's daughter studied law. You'll notice that it's a very similar shape in the mouth. Let's look at some sound changes for the Brooklyn accent. So there are no r's at the ends of some words. So like, there, player, flatter become theah, playah, flattah. And the ah sound in thought, dog, and law become a diphthong. So they become a two element sound. For thought, dog, law. Sometimes that th sound, thin, thick, this, that become very dentalized. So it's thin, thick, this, that. So you hear those hard, flat sounds. The back of the teeth. Thin. Thick. This. That. You start to hear the musicality of the accent. T's are very dentalized. So they're very pushed up against the teeth. So Tony takes his time becomes Tony takes his time. Do you hear the difference there? Tony takes his time, and Tony takes his time. The st sound in stretch becomes stretch. I love that one. So what's the musicality of this general Brooklyn accent? Well it's a very urban sound, like we'd said. It's got a lot of power to it. You use emphasis with volume, and less with pitch variety. But don't take my word for. Go listen to some native Brooklyn speakers, and let the accent reveal itself to you.

Hard to find a Brooklyn native these days. It’s full of foreigners and out-of-towners. The native accent also depends on the ethnicity of the speaker. Huge differences.

I am an Australian-based writer of crime fiction. In the novel I'm working on right now, I have a character from Brooklyn, living in Australia. He pronounces ‘murder’ as ‘murdah’ and ‘sister’ as ‘sistah’. Do you think that is a correct rendition of a Brooklyn accent?

I completely disagree with the speculation that NY accent is a consequence of New Yorkers having to speak loudly or "wide". It was obviously a consequence of Irish, Italian, German and Jewish immigrants trying to speak American English but failing to pronounce words properly

My Dad was born in Brooklyn and apparantly he has an accent. He still does with some words. Since he somewhat helped teaching me some words, sometimes I'll say something and just be like *"wth I've never even been to Brooklyn-"*

I just finished "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn" and they mention the main character having a strong Brooklyn accent. This was during early 1900s though and Brooklyn had many Germans, Irish, etc at that time. I'm curious if the accent was different then vs now.

Her Brooklyn accent is an old one. Sounds like Bernie Sanders. The younger native speakers don't sound quite like that.
Angie Canegitta (10 months ago)
I'm from Brooklyn and I have never actually heard this accent in real life. You would only really find it in people 30's and older who are white. Its because I lot Brooklyn have Caribbean people, like my dad and it also has many Asians like my mom.
