Description
Everyone has an accent, though many of us think that we don't. We all have our likes and dislikes about the way other people speak, and everyone has something to say about "correct" pronunciation. But how did all these accents come about, and why do people feel so strongly about them? From reconstructing Shakespeare's accent to the rise and fall of Received Pronunciation, actor Ben Crystal and his linguist father David travel the world in search of the stories of spoken English. With an emphasis on Great Britain, the Crystals probe this contentious and seemingly insoluble dilemma, providing humorous and perplexing examples along the way.
