    password= straight to the point.

     

    Go straight to the point = aller droit au but

     

     

     

    the different accents in NYC:

     

    In the Bronx, it's punchy and tough /tʌf/.

     

    There is a heavy initial emphasis/accentuation/ stress

     

    on the consonants.

     

    Brooklyn is a nice place to live with a friendly community.

     

    The accent is very lively and up and down. You masticate/chew

     

    the vowels. Queens is very nasal. You sound desperate because

     

    it's a pain to live in. It's very boring.

     

    Staten Island is obnoxious. Eventually/finally, Manhattan is very

     

    quick, stressed out and rushy because they are very busy./bizi/

     

    here the woman is not serious: she is joking/mocking the other accents

     

    she may live in Brooklyn because she says only positive things about it.

     

    She is doing a caricature.

     

     

     

    punch= un coup de poing tough= dur emphasis= une emphase/accentuation

     

    a stress= une accentuation consonants/vowels desperate= desespéré

     

    a pain = une douleur boring= ennuyeux/ennuyant bored= ennuyé

     

    obnoxious= odieux stressed out= stressé rushy=pressé

     

    rush hour= heure de pointe busy= occupé
