How to (Not) Speak With a British Accent
This YouTube video is getting some buzz around language circles—and not the good kind. I don’t think this is how the English really pronounce coffee.
John Wells has a more detailed dissection of the video on his blog.
The lesson here is not to post YouTube videos on a subject unless you really know what you’re talking about.
(Hat tip to Wishydig.)
Update (a few minutes later): I just found this parody video made in response.
