Today we Tour British Accents... why not

How'd she do Frugally Challenged?

  1. Not too bad but I don't think people from the various regions would be fooled. The local accent from around me (Lincolnshire) wasn't included - in fact she missed out the entire East Midlands. One of the characteristics of the Nottinghamshire/ Leicestershire area is the pronunciation of "New". Most Brits would make it rhyme with "you" but in Notts/Leics they say "Noo", rather as Americans do.

    Just in case you are wondering, I use received pronunciation, the first one she mentioned. It's becoming more and more common - anyone who has lived away from their home region will tend to go for RP. Regional accents were a definite no-no when I was younger but these days they are OK.

    Thanks for finding this one!
