I watched all of that. I don't know who the guy is, but it was very interesting. There didn't seem to be any real conclusion, that I could find, other than that both the Southern American accent and any and every British accent have moved considerably since Shakespeare's day, and don't really bear any resemblance to each other or to Shakespeare's English any more, even though some changes have occurred almost in parallel.

His Southern US accent was remarkably good. BUT: I am compelled to point out that it's AN accent. The South has many regional ones, and while all can be readily identified as Southern, none is THE accent; his was quite nasal, and not all Southern accents are like that, nor is pronunciation universal throughout the South. I noticed that some in the comments section pinpointed, among others, eastern Tennessee/western South Carolina, but one comment said that the rhythm was wrong. But rhythm aside, I was very impressed, and to his credit the Southerners were, too.

This means Americans (´Murcans :D ) pronounce the letter ´r´ every time it is in the spelling, and never when it is not. *

I returned to this post out of curiosity. I suspect the quote above is backwards. People add and "r" when it is not there, especially after an "a." e.g. "idear" for "idea."

Interesting. Which regional accent is that? We don't do that over here on the West coast.
