More facts about the New Zealand ‘Kiwi’ accent
Not all New Zealanders have the exact same accent. The British Received Pronunciation (RP) dialect has had an influence too, depending on the locale and education level of the speaker.
"My car's puckerood!"
There are some fantastic New Zealandisms including: ‘heaps’ to describe an abundance of something; ‘puckerood’ (from a Maori word) to describe something that’s broken; and ‘she’ll be fine’ to say, ‘it’ll be alright’.
There is an abundance of other such colourful idioms, making New Zealanders stand out from other English dialects to the keener ear. Most people outside the region can't differentiate it from the Aussie accent though.
