Have you heard about accentism? How familiar are you with this issue? Have you ever encountered such a scenario? Maybe for others this is a new issue but it is really happening in the world, even in different parts of this world there are people who experience accentism where the emphasis of speech is different depending on the place of origin, for example people in America are fluent in speaking english while there are other races who have different accents of english so they experience discrimination from people. For example you are from japan or not korea, their english is not quite fluent so they experience ridicule from people. Let us not go away and go to our own country, the Pililinas, we know that we are divided into three archipelagos, luzon, visayas and, mindanao and in this paid area there are different languages but our national language is Tagalog, the philippines has hundreds of kinds of languages so it is difficult for other people to speak pure tagalog even though it is easy to pronounce.
For example, I come from Iloilo and the word there is ilonggo or karay-a so our speech is either with a tone or maybe with emphasis, and when we speak Tagalog there is emphasis, sometimes people laugh when they hear the accent that we have but even if there is something funny we are a little hurt because we have to adjust to the language that everyone uses. In today's world, mistakes are still trendy and other people are still gaining accents but now they are being laughed at and not taken seriously, sometimes you can smile but that's how Filipinos really are, they make jokes even though there are many problems, we are known Filipinos who love nonsense but are good at many things. Maybe Accentism is happening all over the world but I hope people understand that there are different races in the world and that they have their own language.
