      4 We’re Largely Stuck With Our Accents. If we’re learning our accents before we actually talk, it makes sense that we tend to stick with the accent we first develop. Although bits and pieces of another accent or language might sneak in if you move somewhere else, it’s unlikely that you’ll ever pass for a native speaker in another region. The Accent book. Read 3 reviews from the world's largest community for readers. Life is beautiful and yet immensely hard. As individuals and communities /5(3).

      Taking the idea at its most extreme, there are plenty of people in my city, Glasgow, whose ancestors, were Cantonese speakers, Polish speakers, Irish speakers, Urdu speakers, who speak locally-accented English. Language is not genetically encoded in the brain, which is what this would actually mean if there were a “neutral accent”.   I also know the original book, The Magician’s Guild, was written by Australian author Trudi Canavan, so on reflection it isn’t so odd to have local narrator Richard Aspel voicing it. Still, I wouldn’t say Aussie accents for fantasy audiobooks are the norm.

      But you're not going to find someone from Greenwich who hasn't been all over the world. The upper class tends to lose its accent because they're more likely to travel. And because they want to. Whereas with Welsh, he can be a middle-class man with working-class roots and still have an accent and it not be an issue. Steven Knight. Man People Roots Liverpool. Justin Timberlake is the single most talented human being I've ever met in my life, and it sickens me. He is, like, 12 years old or something!
