I linked a friend of mine to a best of GB video recently and asked him what he thought. He came back with an unexpected reply, "They sound like you."
I'm Australian, so he clearly wasn't talking about the accents (Brad Shoemaker aside) so I thought about it and realised I have definitely incorporated a bunch of little ticks and habits into my dialogue. Two major ones - the rising two-syllable "uuu-uuummm" (you know the one) when thinking about something, and a good solid "huh" upon hearing something interesting. New recruit Austin Walker is a fantastic proponent of "huh". HUH.
Has anyone else noticed something like this? Surely YEARS of listening to these folks talk has rubbed off on a few others?
