What if English actually SOUNDED like this??

From Dr Geoff Lindsey.

Ever wondered why the vowel symbols most widely used for ‘British English’ don’t sound the way they do in the International Phonetic Alphabet? It’s because they were chosen long ago to describe an upper class accent that’s now considered, well, a bit ridiculous. Anyone who wants to cling to these symbols today is totally disregarding the reasons they were chosen!
