Evaluate the idea that British speakers are subject to prejudice because of the dialect they use.

i’m sorry i can’t be of much help but can you talk about accentism? For example the London accent is more “highly regarded” specifically by say Americans. If you were to ask an american to do a british accent they would initially do a london accent and say “bloody”. Whereas somewhere such as yorkshire or birmingham is seen as “not as smart” perhaps or not perceived to be as “posh” you could say. I suppose this links more to the region you are in. Sorry if this is no help!

if im honest i have no clue, im in my first year of sixth form and it been very confusing. To be honest i think she made the question up herself, as we havent even fully discussed the subject of accents and dialects.

It means that just by the way that they speak, they will be judged. It’s like judging a book by its cover

oh that’s annoying, I too am in my first Year, if you were up for it it would be nice to compare what we have done? As accents and dialects we have kind of covered (well the basics) and we have just started Power and Gender!
