Ack, I have just been reassigned at work to handle incoming international calls as well as the domestic ones I've been handling for several years. This means I have to become an expert at understanding a whole new range of accents. It's weird enough talking to people with Southern accents! Now you expect me to learn a bunch of new international ones?
I just took a phone call from Tel Aviv, Israel. I discovered that the letter "l" when pronounced by someone speaking with an Israeli accent sounds remarkably like the letter "n." At least when pronounced by the particular someone I was on the phone with, anyway.
