    Nasal Twang

    Hi,

    In English pronunciation, what results in a "nasal twang"?

    Which accents have pronounced Nasal Twang?

    Thanks

    Hi anupumh

    Ask a British person what their least favourite accent is, and they will more than likely say 'Brummie' - the variety of English spoken in the West Midlands city of Birmingham. Ask them why, and they will more than likely use adjectives such as 'nasal', 'monotonous', 'miserable' and/or 'ugly' to justify their responses.
