Watch Your Words
How we talk has an effect on how we relate to each other. Sometimes we give away where we’re from in how we speak, an accent. So the question is, is it mocking or endearing when we try to talk like someone from a different region?
We’re learning it probably depends on the individual who is doing the imitating and their relationship to the person they are imitating. If you know the person well, they would know your intent. If endearing is your goal, make sure you know your audience. If it is endearing, it can be a celebration of where you are from.
