Subject: RE: BS: A tour of the British Isles in accents
Yes, Eliza, you well understand my post.
The "Standard English" I referred to was what we were taught in school. "Pronounce the "g", don't drop your "h"s. Neither my Dad nor I have thick accents but when we talk to each other, both our accents get much thicker. Carol gets a big kick out of that. It nothing like what we hear here in the "deep south"
