When Spanish speaks English, several pronunciation characteristics are audible. It may be slight errors or distortions due to the intensive use of the mother tongue that does not apply the same rules as English. The most common speech defects are the pronounced rolling of R (Spanish is a language with rhotic sounds) or the end of syllables with d or t, b or p and v or f that are often confused and interchanged. Also the sound sh is pronounced s.
Example: 'I push my red car along the river' becomes 'I puss my rrret car along the rrriber'
Variations between continents (Europe for Spain, America for Mexico/Brazil) may exist.
The intentionally degraded writing process to reveal pronunciation flaws is often used in novels or transcriptions of lyrics to give them some strength.
This tool is not made to stigmatize Spanish people or their accent, but rather to humorously render the phonology of the Spanish accent to simplify its imitation.
dCode does not propose an audio conversion of the Spanish accent but an idea of its Spanish pronunciation in writing. To listen to an spanish text, use Google Translate: here (link)
