Topic: Why do Yanks pronounce 'twat' like 'twot'?

Anonymous A started this discussion 2 months ago #60,872

Why?

Because it's the indisputably correct way to pronounce it, duh.

That's their perception of how RP dialect English sounds.

RP is RP. The whole point of RP is to standardise English pronunication via the phonetic alphabet. There is no "perception" of RP, it would be like the Yanks deciding that as far as they're concerned 2 + 2 = 168.

I say them according to the rules of Received Pronunciation and its phonetic alphabet.

If it were truly a phonetic accent, it would sound harsh and exact, as though spoken by the Finnish.

There is no "Scottish" you dumb fuck, they speak English. If you mean the Scots' accent, then for the third time I advise you to familiarise yourself with the phonetic alphabet.

Since America is the hegemonic world power, basic reasoning dictates that black americans > white americans > any other race from any other nation. Which means, simply, that black americans are the top of the racial heirarchy. Thanks for the agreement!

(Pssssssttt.....go check out how much of your national debt is owned by China...)

This 'basic' (I commend your word choice here by the way) reasoning relies on a false equivalency between 'hegemonic world power' and culture. America was at its most globally powerful and culturally relevant when it was grinding the blacks into the dust. You see the flaw in your 'logic' (sic)?
