Britain is made up of England, Scotland and Wales. Very different dialects. So you mean "English accent". On top of that, there are very few places with the stereotypical accent- a tiny part of London, and Oxford. I was born in Nottingham and raised in Cheshire, and I can't for the life of me put on a "British" accent.

"Her majesty's united kingdom of britain and northern ireland" My apologies. I usually go on the assumption that the Irish do not like being called British.

Britain also includes Northern Ireland.

Oh God, Northern England accents... they butcher the very language their nation created.

i come from a part of england that doesn't really have an accent, do i just say english?
genuine question
also how did i get here

I don't really have an accent either, and I change my dialect slightly depending on whom I'm with. I go to college with two Mancs and a Liverpudlian, I have a very rough and chavvy accent then.
But when talking to my more distinguished friends or adults or people at the parties my friend throws in her Ormskirk student house, I tend to take a more regal tone. And I honestly have no idea why.
The point is, I don't have a recognisable accent and can't imitate other accents. Just call it English or refer to your county.

I think what people imagine as "English accent" is RP, refined pronunciation, which most of British tv shows and such prefer to use. So they're kind of right since it is the "standard" English pronunciation.

You've obviously never watched a panel show, Misfits, Skins, any soap operas, or most actual British tv shows.
If you want a good example of accent range, watch Game of Thrones.

Sorry if this is a bit off topic, but since you were born in Nottingham, do you happen to know of Fowey?

I say British accent so I don't have to distinguish the difference between the English accent and the English accent to all the retards out there (I'll even go so far as to say American accent, which just sounds wrong). Plus, you guys all sound the same to us Americans, sort of how Asian dialects all sound the same to westerners (when in fact, different dialects are DRASTICALLY different).

Other things I've seen -
1. Get into rural Texas, and tell me that a southern drawl doesn't exist.
2. The Jersey area can hold a heavy Boston accent (depends on who you talk to), as well as other parts of the New England area. Compared to a neutral accent, you could argue that just about everybody there has one.

Off topic - I heard somewhere (forgot where), that the (American) English accent is the more evolved/developed form of the English branch of the Germanic languages. Is that true?

In the same way that that's the more evolved/developed form of the troll face, yeah.

You're talking about dialects. It's two different things; a British accent is someone from Britain (even if you're from Cheshire, if you went to America or Australia or something your accent would still be recognized as British). But dialects are the parts of the country that sound different. Like South London dialect is completely different from North/West London Dialect. But they're both British Accents.

1. dentists are untrustworthy and shouldn't be allowed near mouths
2. the only way to keep that woman alive is to keep her drunk
3. plastic surgery and photoshop aren't used as much
4. when your beer actually tastes like beer and not piss then we talk
5. not sure what you're talking about here. T.V. series? cause British TV produces breathtaking shows. sports series? cause at least they play the same games as everyone else

Everybody can speak English, except the British.
