There are some strong 'American' traits in rhotic/rural English accents, much to some people's surprise. The Penns (as in Pennsylvania) were a Buckinghamshire family, and apparently Wm. had a strong accent when he went over to the Colonies. My childhood accent was a little closer to Bucks, as I lived in South Oxon; it's gained West Oxon (Pam Ayres & The Archers!) influence over time.

LOL@'hat cawfee'.

Yes, I think I probably am deeper in everyday conversation. The phone does funny things to one's manner of speaking...
