Here is a really stereotypical German interval in a whacky comedy referred to as "Papy fait de la resistance".

Jacques Villeret dram Hitler's brother and also speaks (and sings) through a an extremely stereotypical German accent

If you discover an occasion to watch this movie that is quite hilarious.


Aspirating voiceless stop in French. An interpretation pronouncing the sound adhered to by one "h" sound, or a puff that air. Examples: pronouncing "P"-sounds like in "pin" rather of "spin". Pronounce "K"-sounds choose in "cat" rather of "scat". Pronounce "T"-sounds prefer in "tone" rather of "stone".


this is not just German, but additionally American. Aspirated plosives room not really a thing in French, as (to mine ear and also in mine experience), french has an ext of a true voiced/voiceless contrast.

Listen come a french human say peau (skin), vs beau (handsome, pretty).

/p/ is unvoiced in french, maybe only slightly aspirated, and also /b/ is certainly voiced, i think, but in English it 's much more like:

/p/ --> other than after an additional consonant, like it "spot", wherein it is realized as: /b/ -->

the french voiced/unvoiced difference is most salient (in my experience) in children. At any time I had heard a young kid say beau or something other /b/-initial word, girlfriend can definitely hear the pre-voicing, to the allude where it practically sounds choose mbeau, however père sounds much more like 'bear' in english, however with a slight pause to develop up pressure to do the plosive. That sounds favor a contempt "poppy-er" version, for this reason mon père sounds favor

a stereotypical German accent would say "sh" rather of "J" sounds, "f" rather of "V" sounds... I'm not certain what rather exactly, those room the two that involved mind.

For French through an Austrian accent, i m sorry is similar, watch La Grande Illusion. Here's the trailer. Go to 3:20. The famed director and actor Erich von Stroheim to be born in Austria. Https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hctrYzVYmfM

Jules et Jim attributes Oskar Werner, another Austrian. Here's an excerpt: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vy3c6zN4h18

If I had to generalize, I'd say that a German or Austrian accent in French sound thick, together if the indigenous aren't being completely articulated.
