do americans really like an english accent as much as it is implied on the internet? i don't know if it's true or if it's just an exaggerated internet thing. i'm from england and i am curious.

But I like Irish and Australian accents way more..

Whenever someone says "british accent" i can't help but imagine a terrifying voice that switches between scottish, welsh, cockney, after every word.

A "British Accent" could be any of many distinctive accents... starting from 4 different countries and then the multitude of different accents within the countries.

Thanks, mister Pickypants. You know what he means, if you are a yank you have the same interpretation and if you are a brit you know which one they mean. He means someone who speaks BBC English. Though he may recognise a London and a Midlands accent as "British" he means BBC English. And you know he means that.

do the people on tumblr ever take small breaks while talking? or do they just keep on talking continuously until they run out of breath?

that is actually really clever. but being from england, there really isn't an exact British accent is, there must be at least 50+ different ways of speaking across the country. People a couple towns over sound different from where I live. And the general misinterpretation is we all talk like high end london people who use words like 'loo' and 'crumpet' it's called a ******* toilet.

I know a girl at camp who had a British accent and everyone knew her, she was rather popular. On the last day, she wasn't speaking with an accent. When people asked her, she said that she wanted to pull it off for a whole week but got bored pretending. She had everyone fooled, including me, and I was a councilor.

British accent but not from England?
So maybe she was from Scotland, or Wales, becuase they are also in Britain?

Why does everyone assume that British people come from England? It's not the difference between being Dutch and coming from the Netherlands (which is the same thing), there are literally three countries in Britain.
