"i wish i had a british accent"
ah yes, the british accent
the singular british accent
this is a grossly oversimplified map. if you think there are only that many accents in Yorkshire, you couldn’t be further from the truth.
I think it’s perfectly legit to talk about wanting a British accent though! I have a British accent, because I am from Yorkshire and Yorkshire is part of Britain
until Yorkshire devolution anyway >.> If someone says to me “You have a British accent”, they are being factually accurate - I don’t blame a non-British person for not being able to pinpoint where my accent is from (especially as I bet a lot of British people wouldn’t be able to either)!
