fake kansai dialect

Use of the kansai dialect based on what is seen and heard on TV or yakuza movies. Use of fake kansai dialect will lead to nothing but laughs and jokes from Kansai natives and non-natives alike because that is exactly what it sounds like, fake, not only in word usage, but also in pronunciation.

Because of stereotypes of people from Kansai, a lot of yakuza movies take place in Kansai (ie. Black Rain), however, most actors and actresses are non-natives, thus, it sounds awful when they speak in the kansai dialect.

It can be kind of related to a West Virginian talking like a New Yorker or a Bostonian talking like a Texan and vice versa. It just doesn’t work.

An example of nise kansaiben is my node of nandeyanen.
