I've come here in the hope that there may be some genius amongst you who could have a fair crack at identifying a potential country of origin through speech pattern.
On the Movies&TV stack, we're trying to narrow down the origin of the mysterious 'Tommy Wiseau', a cult trash movie director who is notoriously evasive about his personal history, but is absolutely captivating to watch.
According to a recently published journal/biography, we're aware that despite claiming to be from New Orleans and speaking French he is actually more likely to be from a former Soviet Bloc country, but nothing else is known.
Is there a way of identifying what language he spoke by analyzing the syntax and grammatical construction of his sentences? Could accent (as bizarre as it is) be any indicator?
We know this is a long shot, but at this point any clue either way is useful...
