My British accent is more like Jennifer Coolidge’s in Austenland but maybe if I watch this video a few more times I’ll get the hang of it. Which accent is your favorite?

What a glorious melange of accents! No wonder Henry Higgens pleaded “Why don’t the English teach their children how to speak?!” I like the posh accent in London, the Glasgow accent, and the Northern Irish accent. Some, like Liverpool and cockney are amusing, but too dense to discern. I love the way your Mister can imitate so many of those accents!

I suppose national and international TV and movies are smoothing it out a bit, but what country doesn’t have its high and low accents? Who would expect a Southerner with a thick drawl to be a brain surgeon?
