之前外國朋友教我一個英文單字 - mellifluous。
"A mellifluous voice or piece of music is smooth and gentle and very pleasant to listen to. [formal]
I grew up around people who had wonderful, mellifluous voices.
Soon the room is filled with Bates' mellifluous tones.
Synonyms: sweet, soft, smooth, honeyed More Synonyms of mellifluous."
"[...] yesterday I was watching an episode of the detective series
'Father Brown', and there was an actor in it who I recognised but
couldn't think where. When I looked him up, he was in 'The Bank of
Dave', the film I watched on the plane. That's a funny coincidence. He
is called Angus Wright, and he has a distinctive appearance and very
distinctive voice. I wondered where his accent is from, and found that
he is the son of a top British diplomat so lived in many countries as
a child. You can see his showreel here ('Father Brown'is actually at 4:55):
His father was said to have a 'mellifluous' voice, but I can't find
any clips at the moment, but there is a good word for you."
就在飛機上看過另一部Angus Wright演過的電影 "The Bank of Dave"。
發現Angus Wright的父親是英國外交官，而Angus Wright小時候也在國外長大，造就了他的口音。
網路上說，Angus Wright的外交官父親有著mellifluous voice。
"I managed to find a video of his father, Lord Wright of Richmond,
speaking in the House of Lords in 2015. You can definitely see where
Angus gets his voice from!
He mainly spoke about foreign policy, particularly in the Middle East,
as he had been a diplomat."
我聽完Angus Wright的父親Lord Wright of Richmond講話片段，
"I didn't really think what type of men's voices are 'mellifluous'.
I guess the men's voices that are considered most pleasant are deep,
smooth sounding ones. For example, John Brunning from Classic FM
(a bit like the man in the video you linked describes a presenter on a
jazz radio station). Some black American actors have great voices,
for example Morgan Freeman who you mentioned, and James Earl Jones.
Many people think Welsh accents are particularly pleasant, because they
have that slightly 'sing-song' quality. Maybe you would like the voice
of Richard Burton, which is both deep and Welsh:
I don't think the Taiwanese man in the video you linked songs
mellifluous. His voice is quite fast and not at all smooth."
但我看到他特別點出也許我會因為Richard Burton的威爾斯口音而愛上Richard Burton的聲音。
"What I really meant was that Welsh accents are considered pleasant and
also interesting because of the way they sort of 'sing'.
That's why I thought it might sound pleasant in general.
I didn't mean to you specifically.
Interestingly, in the 2005 film version of 'War of the Worlds',
the same quotation is read at the start of the film by Morgan Freeman.
He also narrates the closing lines, which are quite famous and taken straight from H. G. Wells's book."
後來，外國朋友又看了另一部電影，Anthony Hopkins主演的 - "The Remains of the Day" (長日將盡)，
"Anthony Hopkins has one of those mellifluous, subtle Welsh accents
that we were talking about the other week, like Richard Burton.
You can hear it in any trailer or clip of the film.
It's annoying that all the trailers seem to be for American audiences.
