Subject: RE: BS: Language Pet Peeves
about six months ago, the DH and I got interested in a British TV show about archeology. The name of the show is Time Team, and although it's been off the air a long time, we still enjoy it.

Watching the show has cause me to hear many different pronunciations between English English and American English. It's a funny thing, because the books I read about English don't mention them.

It's late at night and I'm tired, so I'm not going to try to list them. Nonetheless, there are so many of them that railing against them is like telling the waves not to come in.

We do smile at all the extra r's in the British speech:

arear
Carenzer (Carenza)
dramer (drama)

We think they're cute.
