    why do newsreaders talk the way they do?

    it's as if they have to put emphasis on each word they say and put a small pause between each word.


    can't they talk like proper people?

    It quite simply makes them easier to understand and makes them easier to listen to. Professions where public speaking is a primary skill use similar techniques.

    i understand your point, but that's not what i mean.

    it's as if they're concentrating on something else when trying to speak.

    put them in a conversation mode perhaps when talking to another reporter and they talk like normal people having a conversation, but stick them back in front of their auto-cue and it's as if they're trying to maybe listen to what their producer is saying in their lug rather than concentrating on talking properly.

    it may be just me but it does my bonce in.
