Abstract or Introduction
This paper is about the differences between American and British accents. It shows differences in vowels, consonants and stress.
One of the reliable ways to identify someone's nationality is by asking them to speak because when someone speaks, we will be able to figure out and listen to their “tune” of language that is, the intonation that accompanies their utterances. This “tune” is commonly known as “accent”. By a person's accent you can know if they are from England, America, Australia, etc. This is because accent is intricately connected to nationality or race. Therefore, it is legitimate to say that Americans and Britons are distinguishable mostly through their accents. Though both speak English, the manner in which they speak it is not the same.
