Hello and welcome to British English
with Joel & Lia. Today's video is all

about BBC English so sometimes referred
to as RP English, Received Pronunciation

or BBC English which is the way everyone
used to speak on the BBC way back when

so in this video we're gonna talk you
through three features of BBC English in

the second part of the video we're gonna
explain that this is no longer really a

common way of speaking in the UK or in
London but you can absolutely use these

features if you're learning a BBC accent
for perhaps an acting role or

just out of interest and we're gonna
just talk a little bit about what people

in the UK think about BBC English so
here we go the first feature of RP or

BBC English is the 'u' sound such as the
word Duke or during so in contemporary

London English we would probably say
during or during which is 'djuring'

or Duke (juke) the Duke of Edinburgh had a
great time during his trip to London

which is perfectly fine but it's not
technically correct and not correct in

the BBC English accent so we're taking
away the 'j' sound and we're just saying D

U next to each other during Duke so it
might be really hard to hear maybe you

can't hear the difference but
certainly when you speak to someone

who's very much old school RP and you
hear them say during or duke

and often these people are a lot older
and they will correct you if they hear

you say juke they'll say it's Duke
yeah similarly I had a teacher tell me

it's tissue not tiss(h)ue and the same
with the word issue instead of I said

what's your iss(h)ue so you know
there's like there's no correct way to

say it both are acceptable it's just
that if you are trying to learn a BBC

English accent for whatever reason it's
these tiny tiny things that will

make the difference the next one is to
do with stress placement in words like

cigarette so the correct way of saying
cigarette in an RP accent would be

cigarette in the same way that you would
say laundrette not laundrette yeah

cigarette, laundrette it's cigarette
laundrette hmm it's a very silly thing

it's a tiny tiny thing but again if you
want to do a BBC English accent it should

be cigarette not cigarette it's just it's
just stupid, it's a really silly thing and don't feel you have to speak like this if

you're learning British English if
you're learning British English then

you're in the right place because our
channel is actually about how people speak

in 2017 that are sort of our age if you're
looking for a TV programme perhaps to help
you with BBC English I might recommend I

might recommend that you watch something
like Mr. Selfridge where most of the

actors speak with BBC English because it's set in Selfridges an English department
store back in the... when it opened so ages
ago yeah definitely or The Crown on

Netflix which is a series all about the
Royal family and when the Queen was

younger so of course they've all got BBC
English accents so it's a really good

one as well yeah so the third example
that we found for sort of tweaking this

BBC English sound that you might be
going for is the T U sound after

each other so similarly to the D U
sounds from Duke and during we've got

the TU sound in words like tuna
instead of t(ch)una what we would say or

Tuesday instead of a T(cho)uesday or I'm
getting on the tube

instead of I'm getting on the t(ch)ube or I'm watching
YouT(ch)ube you should say I'm watching

YouTube I'm watching YouTube which sounds
so weird to us. it almost sounds

American, like if you really really listen, I'm watching YouTube and that's probably
quite important that's how it differs to
American if you really listen they would

say YouTube but we would say tube so
we've got a slight it's called a

diphthong where you go from one sound to
the other tube instead of tube it's like

you're dipping, you're actually dipping your tongue. So instead of tube
it's tube. Thank you linguistics expert
Joel. Clapping myself. I've got a cough, I'm sorry

I've been coughing all the way through

Thank you. You're welcome.
He doesn't like to be touched. You're fine.
this video isn't saying that you should
speak like this it's simply to help you

learn a BBC accent if you're perhaps
going for an acting role or you're just

trying to learn it out of interest yeah
this is how some people still speak and

it's useful for you to get some context
in how British English was pronounced

back in the day to how it is now it's
just good to get that a little bit of

history I think hmm people are still
talking about this because very recently

in the news
a guy who works on a mainstream show he

works for the BBC he announces the
lottery so in September of this year it

kicked off people were phoning up and
complaining about a guy who works on

mainstream television because he
pronounces the 'th' sound 'f' so he replaced

his words like Funderball instead of
Thunderball. Or Free instead of Three

and people were phoning up and
complaining and radio stations were

talking about this and there was an
article in The Guardian where he sort of

told his story we'll link it in the
description it's really interesting to read

that there's people out there which
are called prescriptivists

prescriptivists who still care that
people who are on television don't speak

the way they used to fifty years ago
yeah it's just silly it's just really

stupid most people are like us
which are called descriptivists where we

just think there's no right or wrong ray.... *making fun of Joel's mistake*

think that there is no right or wrong
way to speak the way that everyone

speaks is perfectly valid and we are
just describing the way that people

speak which is what we do on our channel
yeah whereas prescriptivists will say

that is wrong this is the right way and
it's just totally stupid. it's only a

very small proportion and again it tends
to be older people. I just noticed the

word stupid I've just s(h)tupid that's another one in BBC English would be
yeah stupid so TU in like tuna and tube

stupid so you've just you gotta just
sort of accept it this is the way the

older generation usually tend to be and
this association comes with sort of like

people that are on television have gone
to a private school have been educated

in say Eton or Cambridge, Oxford but
it's not true and there's so much

diversity now in the UK on TV and
mainstream media there's no correct way

to be this is just what's happening. Definitely, I think we said it at the
beginning but just to reiterate people
used to only be able to get a job with

the BBC if they had the BBC English
accent whereas now you get people with

all sorts of regional accents on the BBC
so it's just not a thing anymore it's

just a silly attitude to have and it
will probably work in your favour if you

don't have a BBC accent because they're
trying to move away from that old-school

mentality and just bring other people
onto the platform whether it's the way

you speak or the way you look so yeah
diversity is king gotta tick that diversity box

Tick that ethnic box.
Greek! Did I mention I'm Greek? Give me a

job. Give US a job! Connected to a Greek exactly... I'm a male and white so it's not really um
and RP... not really diverse. So fingers crossed for Joel Wood everyone!
anyway that's it for today's video if
you enjoyed it don't forget to give us a

thumbs up and if you did find it useful
if you're working on a BBC English accent

let us know if you found it
useful in the comments yeah and don't

forget to follow our social media as
well we're @JoelandLia on Instagram

Twitter and Facebook on all of it take
care bye
