What is the exact question? What level is this at? Does it ask anything about standard English and RP and the differences? These tend to go together as people confuse standard English with RP, thinking that only speakers who use RP which is supra-regional can use standard English, when anyone with any regional accent can use standard English.

Is this an essay or a small question?

It's for a presentation (just 1 slide on it), it says 'Explain and illustrate 'social and regional dialect'; accent and received pronunciation: standard English. Any ideas? Thanks a lot
