Interesting. So, Mark, you identified those actors' accents as "Oxbridge". I've noticed that when it comes to British actors there are some quite discernible vagaries. Michael Caine vs. Robert Newton for example, the London low-lifes vs. whatever accent those pesky royals put on...do all these variations have their own title? Wot's up there, guv'nor?

^ Especially pertinent as the Cornish are afraid that Brexit will cost them their unique tongue.

As Bill Bryson points out in his excellent book "Mother Tongue" Britain probably has more different clearly discernible accents and dialects for its size than any other country. Given our unconscious sensitivity to matters of class many of us have an inherent capability of recognizing one from the other.

My wife was a Hertfordshire lass bred and born and had a Herts accent. When we moved to Solihull in the West Midlands we had an electrician in to the house - he had a strong Black Country accent. I had to act as a translator between them and they also resorted to writing rather than speaking

Caine hails from London's East End whereas Newton was a Dorset man - two very different accents. However Newton's Long John accent was greatly exaggerated Devon (the next county along) one - he was really hamming it up in that film. It's about as authentic as Dick van Dykes faux Cockney accent in Mary Poppins

There is a big difference between a Cornish accent and the Cornish tongue. One is a distinctive way of speaking English whilst the other is a Celtic derived language
