Of course we say Plunkbat.
EASL sometimes find perplexing how you natives insist on spelling out acronyms that you could easily read as words, but then you fail to do that consistently.
So mistakes due to some sort of irregularity have a chance to be missed unless exposed to the real thing. A lot of EASL tend to stick with people from the same area or they listen to other EASL, so they might even come to speak some sort of dialect or pick up mistakes without realizing.
Being EASL myself, and somewhat spongy when it comes to language, I loathe to listen or talk to EASL that are still at the stage of prominently featuring their accents or native language patterns. Like I don’t have enough shortcomings or make enough mistakes on my own that I have to be affected by your horrible way of speaking,
(For those familiar with the HotS scene, I can’t stand listening to Grubby. I appreciate that KendricSwissh is German but it’s not obvious)
Of course, most of them find perfectly natural all the inconsistencies in their own languages, even after they’re pointed out to them.
You know, fish and water.
