:oops: I am so sorry to do this so late in the project, but I'm not going to be able to complete section 7 after all. My circumstances have changed for the forseeable weeks. I only had three pages done - not edited and not worth salvage. Again, apologies. It's a wonderfully loaded section, very reve...

Oh, and one thing that just bugs me, and it's been bugging me for YEARS: Apple. is it "AH-ple" or "AY-ple"? Well, like hefyd pointed out, there isn't one, single "it is", and that's why people in the British Isles cannot tell you just one thing that applies everywhere in their territory. I know I'm...

Jc, please check out that link I posted above, called "soundcomparisons". If you click RP on the left hand column, you will get a table of words which you can hover over to hear the Received Pronunciation variety of accent for each.
