ハワイアン・ピジョン・イングリッシュ

 健太の仕事場に電話が掛かってくる場合、多くはローカルの旅行社。
でも時には韓国や台湾から掛かってくる場合もある。
今朝はNew Yorkから電話が入った。
以前から健太のホテルのバンケットルームでミーティングをしたいと言って来ている、やはり日本の旅行社のNY支店。
NYとハワイの時差があって(今は5時間かな?)、健太たちがランチの頃彼らはパオ・ハナって言う計算。
あっ、ごめんハワイ語で「パオ」は終わり、「ハナ」は仕事です(笑)!

 いずれの場合も電話の会話は英語が多い。
韓国なまり、中国なまり、NYなまり、、、。それぞれ独特のイントネーションなので、なれないと良く聞き取れない。
韓国なまり、中国なまりは細心の注意が必要。とても聞きずらい。
NYなまりは健太たちハワイの英語に比べると、すごくスムースで綺麗でかっこ良く聞こえる。

 ハワイはアメリカの一部、もちろん会話は英語。
日常生活においても、細かいやり取りを電話でしなくてはならない事が多い。こいつがとてつもなく厄介!
健太が一番困るのは、メインランドのカード会社にクレームの電話をしたり、カタログ・オーダーの電話をする時だ。
電話に出てくる連中は、大抵末端の平社員。それも入社間もない連中なんて事が多々ある。そういう連中は何人だか分からない変てこな「なまり」で喋ってくる事が実に多い。中でもメキシカンなまりや南米なまりが特に多いかな、、、。
アメリカだから綺麗な英語を皆が喋ってくれると思ったら大間違い!
こっちで生活するには、訳のわかんない英語にも強くならなきゃならないんだ(笑)!

 最もメインランドの連中に言わせりゃ、健太の英語こそ「日本語なまり」「ハワイアンなまり」で分らないって嘆いてるかもしれない(笑)!

 写真は今日のマジックアイランド。天気はいまいちでした。

 Part II は、旨そうだよ(笑)!

健太さん、なんていうか、聞き取りやすいかどうかは別として、私には相手にとっつきやすい気がするかも~。イギリス英語とはまた違って。。ある意味緊張しないっていうか。個人的意見ですけど。東京弁が冷たく聞えると言われるのと逆~みたいな感じ。ハハ..

地方や出身国によってなまりは全然違いますよね。正確まで違うんじゃないかって言うくらい態度も違ったり…。私は面白いなって思います。私も毎日いろんな英語を聞いていますが、一番解りにくいのはフィリピンなまりの英語です。え?今の英語?って言うのがよくあって…。

でも、みんなアクセントはちゃんとあってるからたいていの場合は大丈夫です。日本人の英語ってなんだかアクセントまで違ってたりしますよね…

ちなみに、私の英語はカリフォルニアなまりだそうです。自分では日本人英語バリバリだと思っているのですが…

レイコさん

なるほど、「親しみがもてる」ですか、、。少しは安心しました(笑)!
イギリス英語は健太には「口先英語」に聞こえます。口先でしゃべってる感じ。アメリカは「腹から英語」腹からしゃべってる感じ。健太の独断と偏見でした(笑)!

Anelaさん

Part IIの方のコメントで書きましたが、健太はフィリピン英語良く分かります。ワイキキのホテルのハウスキーピング連中は殆どフィリピンのオバちゃん連中です。この連中とはしょっちゅうやり取りしてるので慣れてます(笑)!
Anelaさんの英語はきっと綺麗な英語だと思います。ブロ具を読んでいても何時も努力をなさってる。
でも長年ハワイにいる健太はやっぱりハワイアンなまり、日本人なまりです、、、(汗)!
