Well the Appalachian accent has always kind of been "stock American" for British TV shows, I've noticed, going as far back as the 1960s. Not that far off, midwest accent, I mean.Terry wrote:I agree with the others. The holiday was the only blip for me. Nice job. Why don't you post some more?
A novel written by an English woman, I read a few years ago, had a few British phrases said by Americans. So it is wise to check.
I saw a funny video a while ago about an English woman going to a language coach to learn American. The midwestern accent is now considered American English. I'm from Boston and I can't even manage a midwestern accent. The "R"'s. If I can find that video, I'll post it.
