    Default [OT] British + American accents


    suck it brits

    http://www.nicholasjohnpatrick.com/p...ritish-accents

    Americans in 1776 did have British accents in that American accents and British accents hadnít yet diverged. Thatís not too surprising.

    Whatís surprising, though, is that those accents were much closer to todayís American accents than to todayís British accents. While both have changed over time, itís actually British accents that have changed much more drastically since then.
    whos speaking the wrong english now?

    lol. I always find accents intensely interesting. I have a brutal Boston accent as well, so go figure.

    HAHAHAHA written by an American and you believe it.........


    For a start, there is no such thing as a "British Accent" because Britain specifically mean Great Britain which is England, Scotland and Wales. If you mean the UK that includes Northern Ireland so you see it plain as day that the dickwad from Baltimore doesnt even get the first facts correct.


    Also, BBC English..? Yeah we all know about it but it accounts for a tiny percentage of the population... bit like saying that all Americans sound like Joey from Friends "Ey ow you doin'?"... and thats just stupid


    Whatever mumbo-jumbo you wanna come out with, you will always and forever be speaking ENGLISH...

    Im English, I speak English.
    You are American, you speak English.


    I woke up at 6am today and thought fuck it ill get up and do some work and this has brightened my morning up.

    Thanks Theory old chap... tally hoe

    I speak english too. In my language, 'balm' is not the same as 'bomb', 'Kahn' is not the same as 'con', and 'lager' is not the same as 'logger'.
