Yola, I had to try because of what you said. I was unable to enter, darn it! About the south of England, I never understood why my father, who was close to 40 when he came here, deliberately lost his accent. After my cousins visited, I understood. Although the women, who had higher education, spoke with a more cultured accent, the accent from Devon (used by the husbands) is not as desirable as one from the midlands. Nevertheless, it all sounds like music to me, and the men were very intelligent. (You're right; we all seem to judge people by the way they speak.) There is no one in the states who is related to me except my immediate family! Of course, so many Americans are Anglophiles, they love all British accents. People used to tell my mom they could listen to her speak all day. She was from Glasgow.
