    The British Accent

    In the British accent I hear some distinguish pronouncing like the letter R when it is at the end of the words it becomes vowel letter and some words like the following :

    Can, laugh, dance the a is pronounced with grandiloquence unlike in the American accent .

    Please : it's pronounced like Plaise

    I hope who remarks other distinguishing pronounciation of the words in the British accent to not be ungrudging to us
