    I love your accent :ahee:
    Incidentally your accent (bar the "grass" and "bath") is more or less how I hear my accent sounding.

    No lol. But I refuse to call myself a Lawyer until I have been met a uni offer. I did get 7 law books for Christmas though.

    Nice. In all honesty, I feel *most* intelligent people have a similar sort of accentless accent. Not RP, just well-spoken.

    Refused to take bait.

    I did some research, and con-tro-versy is American whereas con-trov-ersy is British.

    Actually my economics teacher (EconPlusDal on YouTube, a lot of TSR Economists use him during exam revision times) pronounces 'little' as 'lit-al' and not 'lit-tul'. He's a Nottingham lad too

    Still a very intelligent man though, but I'd like to see a chav explain some complicated science to me.

    Contro-versial
    Contro-versy:dontknow:

    I'm confusing myself with some of these words and forgetting how I actually say them.

    If that's true (I have a feeling it's true pragmatically but I don't think you could call it completely American - my Latin teacher insists on it being called contra-versie and he's very British. And ridiculously knowledgeable) then America's right for once. But that's not possible so it's not American #controversialstatement

    I have three teachers with Cambridge degrees, and all speak with that accentless accent (except one speaks with a scottish lilt bless him). So do my intelligent peers. I guess it's what you're exposed to.

    That's sort of cute. The fact that I was more scientifically aware aged 10 also makes it slightly sad though :sadnod:

    ... I'm sorry but that is BAD LOL
    For our recording we should also read the Betty Botter tongue twister; 'Betty Botter bought a bit of butter...'

    Or 'big black bugs bleed blue blood' then swap the blue and black around! Also see my edit lo
