:-) Funny how its just a few sounds that are dead giveaways (Forest grew up in London and then moved to Dorset and has a few odd vowels in from the latter, and can't pronounce three as anyhting other than free thanks to the former. Not that I tease him about it, oh no... ::innocent look:).

Can't imagine hearing father/bother as the same word, somehow!

My accent is general educated Northern but Americans used to have *such* trouble with it, myself and a friend with a strong Preston accent used to have to slow down and flatten our speech and repeat things a lot for the American students at university in our first year, so if [livejournal.com profile] imc has quite a distinctive accent I bet he'll cause no end of head-scratching. Mind you, never mind the US folk, I can't order stuff from local Chinese or Indian takeaways over the phone because they're so attuned to Liverpool tones they just can't work out what I'm saying ::sigh::
