Why do you have American and british accent?
Imagine a group of people who live together and speak the same way. Any change in the way they speak (their dialect) will either pass to the whole community, or drop out of usage.
Imagine some of those people move elsewhere and start their own community. Each group may develop different slang and dialects that spread through their own communities, but not to the other one. Two different dialects have been born.
This is why Britain itself has many accents, so it's no surprise that when some of them colonized what is now today the US, that those people developed their own too. Another important factor is that the US took in a large amount of Irish immigrants, their dialects combining with the current residents to form the US accents used today.
Of those two, it is closer to the British, but the Kiwi accent has evolved quite a way apart from there so as to be a completely different accent; it is closer to the Australian accent than either American or British.
There is nothing different between the American and the British accents. The New England accent is different.
Robert Pattinson does have a british accent but only uses his American accent for the Twilight series movies. But yes he is British.
Why does my accent change I'm 100 percent british and so are all my family but my accent changes from SLIGHT british to fully American why does this happen to me I sound especially American at night?
It is probably because you live in the states now and everyone around you has an American Accent. It is weird for me, because I have a closer British than American accent, and no one I even know has a British accent, so I guess mine is like a freak thing. (and no it is not a lysp or talking difficulty. everyone has actually told me I have a British accent, even British people..)
They got it from the British actually. The British had what is now the accent commonly known as the American accent during colonial times.
As an American living in London it is quite easy to get a british accent (or fake one) you can either take speech classes with a british teacher or go live in England for a while and see the accent.
Does Robert Pattinson fake an American accent in twilight Or does her just use his regular british accent?
He uses an (awesome) American accent.
I believe that in American English the accent is in the middle (the second syllable), while in British usage the accent is in the beginning of the word (the first syllable). American: lyooTENant. British: LYOOtnant.
No. She is an American. But she knows how to do a British accent :)
Employees working in call centres, BPOs and various other offices of American companies need to speak English in the American accent. Likewise, there is also a need for many employees to speak English in the British Accent. There are several accents, however the most common accent training requirements are to learn the American accent or the US accent and the British accent or the UK accent.
British! Her accent is merging into american, due to living out there and role requirements, but she is definitely British :)
Yes they do.
It might help if you spelled "beautiful" and "American" right.... just saying....
No, he is British, as you can tell by his accent :) x
The British accent was the original although accents slowly change with time. It is interesting to note, however, that the original British accent was more like the modern-day American accent, and research has shown that it is the British accent which has evolved more since colonisation of North America. Originally, both the British and Americans spoke with a rhotic accent. Rhotic essentially means an accent where the letter 'r' is pronounced strongly after a vowel… Read More
Harry Styles speaks British which in the end is the same as American but without the british accent.
Sometimes it is necessary to speak like the Native English speakers in certain jobs.

Americans have an accent known as the American accent. People who do not have the accent hear it, but to someone that has the accent it can not be heard because they are used to speaking it. British people do not have an accent but to Americans and other countries they do for example.
She must have had to to play the role in Narnia but when she is not acting she still speaks with a british accent
I'd say it was Midatlantic. More of an American "prep school" accent than a british one.
If they can talk with a GOOD British accent.
Being British he has a British accent.
If I am an American will my voice start sounding like a British accent after living around British people all the time?
After a while, it will sound a little British to your American friends when you return home, but you will still sound American to British ears.
Americans do have accents, British people do have accents. When one has a different way of speaking than another then it is noticed. When a British person hears an American person speaking, the American does have an accent to the Brit. Answer Everyone has an accent! That's how British people know that you are Americans, and how you know that they are British! Strange question!!
With lots of practice, yes.
You can't, it's impossible.
That depends on whether you were raised in the US or the UK.
It's not just British, most people seem to lose accent when they sing.
Here accent was "standard" Midwest American, although her precise enuciation of words (as was the style for film actors of the time) may sound vaguely British.
yes, he has a british accent.
Of course he has an accent. Everyone has an accent. To Americans, he has a British accent. To British people, he speaks normally.
Personally, I love the British accent and wish that I could hear it all of the time. No certain part of Britain has an accent that bothers me. Every American will have a different opinion and remember Britain has a huge range of different accents.
If the nun is British, she probably will have a British accent. If she's German, she'll probably have a German accent.
Most British think the 'American accent' is a little odd. I have realised there are many different American accents, from living in Canada many years.
Yes, she does. She was born in england. On of her parents is british and the other one is indian. In the movie she was able to do an American accent. Hugh Laurie does the same thing on House.

Why do Australian and British actors easily adopt American accents but American actors cannot do British or Australian accents?
Regarding just the Australian accent: Linguists and scientists have studied the Australian accent, and come to the conclusion that it is almost impossible to reproduce accurately. Its many inflections, use of "schwa", and mix of influences on its origins have made it a completely unique accent.
he has a british accent
As British people consider the British Received pronounciation (RP) the standard pronounciation of British English, people in North America consider General American (GA) the accent which is more difficult to distinct as belonging to a particular area. The accent is not only present in the United States but it's also common in several parts of Canada. The General America accent is mostly similar to a generalized Midwestern accent. Many newscatsers and politicians attend accent-reduction classes… Read More
British, in real life. He does a American accent. I think in the show he's Canadian or from Cali
- British - Spanish - French - Italian - Austrailian
British singers often sound American because the act of singing smooth's over a lot of the features of the British accent. It may also be a stylistic choice to emulate certain artists.

The Boston accent is similar to that of the English accent in London, but the words and dialects are different. It is the same accent that was spoken in Boston during the American Revolutionary War , when Massachusetts was one of the original British Colonies. And, is pretty much still spoken today.
It isn't- i mean, who doesn't love someone who has a British accent?
