The meaning of "Speaker" in various phrases and sentences

The author of this is saying that someone has his own special approach to the "concept," but the author wants to know why is it so important that his concept be studied more. Why is it that this other person's approach is a new way of thinking that deserves attention?

Q: What does I was wondering if you, native speaker, can understand clearly all the dialogues in games like GTA San Andreas, or any other (with all that idioms and accents), movies like Interstellar, etc. Thanks in advance. mean?
A: Generally, yes, I can understand all of that. Accents are usually understandable if they are not too thick (personally I occasionally have issues with Scottish accents). If I am not familiar with an idiom (which isn’t likely), then the context of the situation helps with understand the idiom.
Q: What does The speaker is moving the conversation along

it means the speaker wants to continue the discussion or wants to stop it and started a new subject?
i dont understand whole of it and i dont know the meaning of along in this sentence as well. mean?
A: 'Talking' isn't a position. That is what the speaker is doing. He/she is talking. The word 'move' is used because the speaker is continuing the conversation. I think 'moving' can be used to say that something is continously happening or something is moving forward. Hope this helps. :)

If I was born in England, I first learned English, so I am a native speaker of English. Later in life I learned French; I am a non-native speaker of French.

Example sentences using "Speaker"

Q: Please show me example sentences with I done said, i done did. Why do native speakers say done before verbs in the past tense .
A: I wouldn’t say “done did” is incorrect. There is a stereotype that it sounds uneducated, but it’s a common way to speak in certain regional variations of English. For those variations (like parts of southeastern US) it’s perfectly fine, if informal.

As a non native speaker you should probably stick to the more standard construction though (eg I cooked dinner instead of I done cooked dinner, I drove all the way instead of I done drove). The standard will be understood everywhere. It may sound strange to native speakers if a non native speaker uses done did, and other non native speakers will probably find it harder to understand.

2) mountain, curtain, sentence

which region of the US pronouce these words with a stop"T"? Are these words pronounce with a stop''T'' the majority?
A: I don’t know about specific regions or accents, but I don’t consistently use a hard T with any of the words. Depending on what I’m saying and how I’m saying it changes if there’s a “t” sound in the middle or not. When I speak normally, it’s pretty fast though, so maybe I generally don’t use the T sound.
I’m from Florida, so we don’t have much of an accent by the way. :)

I think it depends on how someone is saying it, because sometimes I do say them with a hard t sound.
Q: why native speakers oftentimes use "like" when they talks about something?
A: The people who do this seem to need to keep talking without having enough to say. They include these extra meaningless words "like" that communicate nothing but fill up the silence.

(By the way as you are asking about UK English you might want to know that "oftentimes" is another Americanism and it would only be used in US English.)
