What English Sounds Like

Published 15 Dec 2009. Tags: language, music.

Italian singer Adrian Celentano wrote the song Prisencolinensinainciusol in 1972. It’s lyrics are actually gibberish, but they were intended to sound like American English.

If you happen to be a native English speaker, and you’re curious how you sound to speakers of other languages, now you can know! The imitation’s spot-on. OLL RAIGTH!
