You may have sat around the table compared accents with people you’ve met on holiday, but it turns out Aussies can put a spin on even the simplest of words.

According to Melbourne social media user, Tiffany Krylov, Australians have been roasted for the way we pronounce the word ‘no’.

In a video on TikTok, Tiffany explains we tend to say it as though it has “two syllables.”

“And I mean I get it but you know what? I’m embracing it because the way that we say it is so much fun,” she exclaims.

The self-described ‘pronunciation queen’ also says the word much be said with “considerable inflection in the sound.”
