Gentleman Jim, our authentic English travelling companion, is doing his utmost to maintain a proper British accent. (Just today, a waitress said to him "I love your accent, I could lie down and listen to you all day." Jim said, "I'll make you a tape."). To avoid pronouncing WATER, “watta”, instead of “wortor”, he has appointed me (Jason) his dialect guardian. Nice move Jimbo. Pick a guy whose accent is part Aussie, part Anglo, part something you can’t quite place. Just the person for adjudicating on pronunciation issues. Uh huh.
