In malaysia, we learn british english but more influenced by american english through entertainment and stuff. As result, we tend to speak both at a time that we developed manglish (british+american+slang from our own mother tounge). Even before this, we must write using british english in exam but now we can choose either british or american english as long as we write consistently throughout the essay.
I'm American (born in Florida) and I've heard of pish-posh, which is like 'that's silly' or 'ridiculous' or 'nonsense', but I've never heard the use of the word "posh" by itself. I do admit that it sounds strange to me because I just never heard any American say that. But now that I have an understanding of the word posh, I can safely say that its equivalent to the younger generation of American slang would be: One Republic is lit or One Republic is awesome (using One Republic as an example).
Your formal British email was great (& funny) but there were a couple of mistakes. Enquiries was pronounced wrong. You said it the American way. ... If I spell it vaguely how it sounds it should be En-choir-ies.... Yes, I mean like the church singers. Say Choir and you are getting close to how I'd say Enquires.... Yes of course there are regional differences, but you were reading it as a "Posh" person would, so I think my advice holds true.
Then you did a soft T in "Chatting"... again wrong because Posh people do not do that. It would be a hard T.... Soft T is really only East London, and you can't really say they are that Posh !
Amazing that you are able to mimic so well though, you are truly advanced, but even the best can learn a little more. :) xx
Aluminum and aluminium are not pronounced differently, they are spelled differently, hence the different pronunciation. Your spelling of the American "aluminum" was incorrect and used the British spelling.
Learn the language not the accent. Accents varies from country to country. I am from India and I speak in British English but my accent is not like them. As long as people can understand you, you can use any accent you want. Doesn't have to be British or American specifically.
It's quite strange. I watch a few BBC shows, like Sherlock, and tend to pick up on the British slang and begin to say those words around friends and family. I also tend to pronounce some words in a more British way, but other times it's in a more American way.
you are doing a good job.
here is my suggestion about different kinds of English.
LET US SAVE ENGLISH...
from disintegration and fragmentation....
Now that the English language has become the lingua franca,
it is extremely important to unite The English language in order to end confusion in spelling and pronunciation between,...
New Zealand English
South African English and
Indian English....etc, etc.
Nothing can be done about the accent. we all know that. But we can certainly agree on spelling and pronunciation. let us encourage the linguistics and politicians from all over the world to get together and agree on two things:
1-one spelling based on Oxford dictionary only.
2-one pronunciation based on Oxford dictionary only.
we can not go on with so much confusion forever. we need to take action now. let us get to work to unite the language that is playing such a vital role in uniting the world.
Zulfiqar Tareen, a friend of all, the enemy of none.
bad, bad example. i stopped watching once you said "Kim K is posh"
too much generalisation.
not every brtish is posh. in fact it is only spoken by 2% of the population.
and posh itself is referred to the upper-class people in the old days. U.S had posh people, and so did every other country.
and the accent posh people spoke in the england is called R.P, and the US is general-american.
once you go to wales or Scotland which is still U.K and definitely is British (British people are everyone living in the British aisle btw, not in the England or U.K or G.B), no one ever speaks R.P
I just became aware of the accents last year. Before that I couldn't really tell the difference between British and American English. Once you notice, it's really hard not to notice. And as a foreigner with English as second language, British English really sounds better, somewhat noble even.
I am complete USA born and raised and I heard of posh before. I do impressions and accents a lot so I have heard of it! I also notice how some people including me say "d" when there is a "t" like better but "bedder"
