I gotta tell you that I'm not keen on the idea of suggesting that the other language elvish groups are speaking is some kind of mutated English. I'm not saying I can't be sold on it, but I do need to give it some thought.
Are you going to try and have Paul Bettany speak with an Italian accent?Finnish and Welsh accents for Noldor and Sindar? Italian for the Teleri? Hebrew for the Dwarves?
And I guess Germanic language accents for Beorians and Hadorians?
Awkwardly Tolkien used Welsh to represent the Dunlendish linguistic background in Buckland, though.
RP accents can be for the Ainur, but as superhuman (and superelven) talented linguists, I think they can use the accent associated with whatever language they're speaking at the time. Or RP for Ainu telepathy.
Orc actors would of course have their voices obscured by computer effects to make them sound like rocks grinding or smashing together.
As an Italian-American who grew up around Italian speakers, I can tell you that Italians who can speak English with anything resembling fluency do not sound like this.the Teleri speaking with italian accent I´m not convinced of...
The Idea comes from Quenya being based on Finnish and Latin right?
The Guy in the Roman Vid or the native Italians in the other vid? I´m convinced it DOES make a BIG difference when you live around native Speakers or if all yo ever heard was some english at School or Popsongs on the Radio... but we were talking about accents?
That was the idea behind having Dori, Nori, and Ori speak different accents. Nori would be apart from the family for some time and pick up a different accent. The idea with him was that he spent some time as a thief (just look at the scene when the Goblins start tearing open their packs and a whole bunch of metal goods from Rivendell is thrown out of Nori’s pack).You mean the Peter Jackson movies?
I request that we not make different members of the same family speak in different accents. Unless they're Elves who haven't seen each other for centuries. (Bofur I could hypothetically understand ... except they really would all just have the same Khuzdul accent.)
