you bloody heros
So, as some of you probably already know, I’m writing my thesis on RP English in media, with an eye on Downton Abbey, in particular.
Now, since this series is full of accents of not so easy comprehension, I was wondering if those who watch it could help me recognising as many accents as possible. Please, do it even if you’re not sure (maybe saying so with a note or something), because part of the thesis is dedicated to how people perceive an accent, so you still would be of great help to me!
Furthermore, a section of the paper is dedicated to The Evil Brit stereotype and (possibly) to the Smart People Speak the Queen’s English Trope, so if you can think of ANY villains who speaks RP in movies and TV series (even animated movies will do), or a character with an RP accent who’s clearly smarter than the others, please, please, help me!
If you can’t help me with the accents, you would still do me a BIG favour if you could reblog this post, so that maybe your followers could see it and help, if they can.
Thank you so much! *hugs*
