I now have 300+ followers! Thank you, everyone, whether you’ve been following me on the long term or you’re fresh to my blog.
There was going to be a lot more to this picture - a LOT more - but I hadn’t planned it out very well and the framing was poor and I couldn’t get the poses right and aaaagh.
So, I’m just going to leave it as this. I’ll let you guys imagine the scenario - it’s more fun that way!
A tour of the British Isles in accents: for those who would be tempted to mention “A British accent” and leave it at that.
…Smart to remember, too, that all these regions will have microregional variants. The Dublin accent referenced here, for example, is only one of at least five or six that I can identify, and I bet there are a lot more I’ve never heard or can’t tell from one another. Ditto for other regions in Ireland. The “Irish accent” as normally heard in US TV and film until quite recently has never been much more than an overstated, artficial “Dublin Stage” accent.
Equally, what most people in the US think of as “the British accent” beloved of movie villains everywhere is usually the so-called Received Pronunciation or RP, a kind of by-blow of the BBC’s refusal for a long time to allow its announcers to use anything but an approved version of the Home Counties “posh” accent. (This dialectic “glass wall” has finally started cracking in the last decade.)
oi followers watch this
that last line got me
Accurate. (Brandy’s accent is the Somerset/Dorset region wooo)
