    accepted or known

    Having been trained for several months, Eliza began to speak in a more attractive accent. In time her spoken English became so pleasant that she became ______ as "the London songbird" because of her beautiful pronunciation. Before long she had been accepted into the hightest ranks of society.

    A. known B. accepted

    Are both answers correct?

    (Not a Teacher)

    While both would be grammatically correct, I only see 'known' as the appropriate answer. If 'London Songbird' were an actual position, 'accepted' might make more sense, but as it stands, 'London Songbird' is simply a moniker.
