QuoteOriginally posted by: outrunQuoteOriginally posted by: katastrofa"Я сегодня тебе принёс не букет из пышных роз, не тюльпаны и не лилии, а всего лишь петунии"I think itąs a Belarusian person "speaking" Russian.Thanks for the translation.A lot of people I know uses strange voices when talking to cats, my wife always lisps, and in California they voice fry (frog talk)"College-age women end sentences in the lowest vocal register, a creaky vibration called vocal fry, possibly to broadcast themselves as part of a social group." -- that's in case I ever wondered how much I've missed with my high-school social life :-)The mannerism is indeed annoying and I've met it a couple of times (in 30-somethings who desperately wanted to appear young), but don't worry, The Guardian is already on it: http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfre ... male-voice
