I love listening to different dialects and this video is a great example about how accents differ depending on our origins. Although, the U.K. has more varying English dialects than the United States, it's only a third of the size of Texas! It's believed to be like this because U.K. communities were more isolated before the phone was invented in the 1930's, therefore there was less outside influence on each dialect. And similar to the general American accent that broadcasters use in the states, the U.K. has a parallel accent called Received Pronunciation (R.P.) that you will hear from U.K. broadcasters. So take a short listen to this video and tell me which is your favorite British Isles accent?
