anonymouth looks interesting, thank you.>>2840>The same thread is on Lain chan and I'd like to hear your thoughts on my idea about using foreign language -> English common mistakes:
Linguistically, people from different areas of the world who use English as a second (or third, etc…) language make similar mistakes when they translate mentally before they speak.
This is also interesting, and I like the idea of droping hints that suggest the speaker has a different background than they do. If these are subtle enough to be not obvious, but nevertheless solidly present one could give an observer the impression that they have discovered something (and that it classifies the speaker in a way that excludes other identities).
As far as conscious emulation of an specific style, while I am sure those work in some areas, a concern rises as far as being able to actually maintain the impression. Most people speak, mostly normally. They have hints, and mannerisms, but they dont do XDDDD at the end of every line unless they are being a troll. Honestly even the iamverysmart style seems more typical of trolls than anything.
Probably, further, these caraciture impressions _draw_ attention to the speaker, even if they make the speaker differentiated from other identities, they make you strongly interesting – exactly the opposite of what you want.
