me and the british accent...

there's something about a british accent that just draws my attention. i don't know why, but no matter how crass the person speaks, if he speaks with either a british, australian, or scottish accent, i'd be listening to him speak all day. it doesn't even matter if it's a lady or a man! i love how kate winslet talks, as well as jude law. and sometimes it's not even about the accent, it's about enunciation. i looove how john malkovich enunciates everything he says so well.

I agree with you that the people you mention has a really cool accent. But have you ever listend to someone from the inner London? Or a re real scotchman? You wont be able to understand a word and belive me, then it's not so nice to listen to any more :-)

Phlamingho, I agree with you that British accent is a very broad concept. Indeed, it will be lovely if one speaks London accent, but unless one born and nourished and educated in London, one might not be able to speak the exact London accent. Plus, there are several accents in London, so which is London accent?! LOL. Anyway, the received pronunciation based on the accent of the Southern England is pleasant to ears.
