Belfast girl speaks using her accent


‘Who speaks properly?’ Hilarious moment girl with an American father and mother from Northern Ireland mimics their contrasting accents

  • Kyra demonstrates the ‘Northern Ireland’ accent to her American father
  • Her father, from Belfast, asks the toddler to repeat words using his accent
  • She then repeats the same words using her mother’s Northern Irish accent 

This little girl demonstrates what it is like listening to her parents who have different accents.

Krya lives in Belfast with her father, who is American, and her mother, who is from Northern Ireland.

And, rather than speaking in just one of her parents’ accents, a hilarious video reveals that she can just switch seamlessly between the two. 

Footage, filmed at her home, shows her father asking the little girl to say ‘down’.

Kyra, pictured, copied her mother and father’s contrasting accents in a short video clip which was shared online. Her mother is from Belfast while her father is from the United States

The girl does so, perfectly mimicking her father’s vowel sounds and intonation.

Her mother then asks her to repeat the word, and she does so in a thick Northern Irish accent, pronouncing it as ‘dow-en’.

They then repeat the exercise with the word ‘towel’ – which is elongated to ‘tow-elle’.

Her parents then get her to say ‘mouse’, which ends up as ‘m-owse’.

And ‘now’ is turned into ‘n-oi’ when Kyra copies her mother.

The parents speed through a few more words such as ‘cow’ and ‘power’ – which loses its second syllable in Belfast, by being turned into ‘pawr’. 

Both laugh at the different responses the girl gives to each of them.

Finally Kyra’s father asks his daughter: ‘Who speaks properly, mummy or daddy?’

Unfortunately for him, Kyra responds: ‘Mummy,’ as both parents laugh, and her fathers asks hopefully: ‘You sure?’

The parents, who did not reveal their names, filmed the adorable footage on February 23.
