I love the Derby accent in midland England and the cockney accent in London! I also enjoy the New York and southern gentleman/belle accents.

I can put on a good English accent (I think it's RP, whatever it is, damn I sound good). My normal accent is a lot like Harry Connick's. I really love a true Cajun accent from Lafayette or thereabouts, it's one of the most beautiful lilts you'll ever hear. If I had to be born all over again, and could speak with any accent, it would be the one Christopher Hitchens uses.

Scottish accent for me.

I have a so-called "RP" accent. I've never heard it referred to as "Received Pronunciation" accent before; only as speaking the Queen's English, or as being posh. Having lived in Florida for the past 12 years, though, it has been somewhat diluted. Not sure what effect New Orleans will have on it. LOL

You will most likely adapt to Yat in some years time. I'm curious to see what it does to my accent as well.
