Ive just seen finding nemo, and thought it was an exellent film. But im now in a bit of a dilemma over a shot in the film, where the seagulls speak. Do they say:

Mike

Mine

Mate

I thought it was mike but thats doesnt make sence, what do you think?

eek


i belive…

mine

"Mate" or "Mine"? | Fasty | chathamtownfc.net chathamtownfc.net

Are the seagulls in Finding Nemo saying "Mate", "Mine", or both? Please let it be "mate"!! :D Anyone know for sure? PS: I wanted to make a poll but I can"t find the option :shrug:


As I said in there, I’m all for “Mine”. Unless it was some weird Monsters Inc. joke, but then they’d have to say Wazowski too.

whoa what the heck? there’s a petition and everything?

maybe there are alternate releases of the movie, which uses “mine” and “mate” for each country like harry potter did with “sorcerer’s stone” and philosopher’s stone" =P

edit:

ok at first it just seemed crazy to me how the sounds of the words mine and mate sound could be interchanged, but now that i think about it from an australian accent point of view and not american-

american Mate = “mayyyyt”

american Mine = “mahhh-iiine”

australian Mate = “mahhh-iiite”

australien Mine = “mohhh-iiine”

that’s actually really interesting! american Mine and australian Mate definitely are the two closest sounds, especially since nobody annunciates the letter t as an exploded consonant these days.

sorry if i’m off on the ideas of the aussie accent, but i do listen to aussie webradio a lot so i’m not just going from crocodile dundee and foster’s commercials =P

anyways i doubt anybody else will find that as interesting as i do, but it was odd to step back from the fact that we’re all typing the same language here and realize how differently it probably sounds inside all of our heads.

hooray for the internet making me actually stop and think of something from another’s point of view
