They say this song composed of gibberish words was written as a demonstration of what English sounds like to those who do not understand it.
I’ve tried to get a sense for what English sounds like by listening to my TV from the other side of my apartment where I couldn’t quite make out the words. I imagine the experience of listening to low volume would do the trick. But this song, ” “Prisencolinensinainciusol” by Adriano Celentano (starting at 1:37 of the video below), lets you hear clearly and still find it strange. And it’s actually a catchy song. Anyone have any insight into whether it’s an accurate reflection of how English sounds as a foreign language?
