Resumen


In England the division between RP speakers, as we may call them, on the one hand, and educated English people who speak Standard English with some different accent, on the other, is a social one. One either speaks RP, or one does not, and, although some people's speech is strongly influenced by it when they go to a university where it is spoken, if the opportunity to learn it in youth does notarise, it might he difficult to acquire it later in life.
