Are there any special distinct characteristics about YN's English? Agrosians speak very quickly and use a plethora of profanity. The Agrosian accent has a blend of characteristics from both the Boston and New York City accent, with hints of Southern New Jersey/Eastern Pennsylvania.

Are there any special distinct characteristics about YN's English?

English is widely, the most spoken language across Republic of La Boca. It is clearly similar with British English in matter of vocabulary, spelling and grammar.
The main characteristic, is that boquense English is highly a non-rhotic dialect, that is, /r/ is not pronounced after a vowel, except in case of the called "linking R", in such case, the r sound is pronounced.
Another distinctive characteristic, is that our dialect borrows words from other languages.

Are there any special distinct characteristics about YN's English?

The fact that hardly anybody speaks it. It is the tongue of slaves, while Binary is the language of the free. Someone who has actually installed the English Language Data Pack is almost always an overseer, a spy, an offworld conniver or drug dealer, or a diplomat.

Another distinct characteristic is that the ELDP was developed by General Carjack, an immigrant from the Earth who was raised in the United States. Because of this, we speak American English with a combination of a Michigan and a Florida accent, with a few bits of other dialects thrown in.

MineLegoEquestrians tend to speak English with a fast accent (meaning that they pronounce it quickly). For example, let's say you're gonna say, 'we're heading to the mall,' a MineLegoEquestrian saying will make it sound like 'wer headin two de maul,' or you're going to say, 'you better hurry up!' It'll end up as 'u betta huwwi up!'
