In recent months, many have been written about the Duchess of Sussex, from speculation about her relationship with other members of the royal family to an endless debate about how much she curses her baby.
Now even her accent became the subject of discussion.
When the Megan movies that are born in California are shared online, the same suggestion often turns out: did she accept the British accent?
Some experts say they can hear changes, but others are not convinced.
] "It seems like something in the idea that the Megan Markle language has changed a bit, at least in some settings," said a physics expert and pronunciation, Dr. Jeff Lindsay.
"There are occasional loud sounds that sound a bit more British.
One example is her more British" all "pronunciation when she met the crowds in Cheshire in June 2018 compared with her speech said the same word in an interview with her engagement and Prince Harry in 2017, he said, but "the differences are subtle," said Dr. Linsey.
And Dr. Lindsay, an honorary lecturer on linguistics at the University College London, added that her intonation is more British than American when asking yes / no: "Have you done this for us?"  Marisa Brooke, an associate professor at the Department of Linguistics at the University of Toronto, said that the Duchess "had developed a style that sounds very anglo-aristocratic for public interaction."
The examples he stressed was the Duchess, who said: "I appreciate it's "in the same clip from Birkenhead (above) in January 2019.
" The voice is that it is even further in the mouth than one can expect for the American English language. "said Ms. Brooke, believing that this could be a consequence of life in southern England.
Ms. Brooke, who studied changes in emphasis from senior figures, said:" I think that much of it is intentional on her part.
"She has developed a style to be used when talking directly to the British public.
" Such situations where people could judge it in public instantly, where it really brings to it benefit for the British and aristocratic. "
"If this is a consciousness, I do not think that it makes it manipulative, either a parable or something," Mrs. Brooke said, attributing any change to the "unique position of the Duchess."
"She is a man who is very much affected by those who usually joins the royal family – this makes a lot of sense. It's not that she changes who she is.
" It's like that, what she changes, how she dresses – this is like an extremely fantastic outfit.
"I would call it a reasonable resource to be able to rely on, given how unlikely it changes the circumstances – and how dramatic it is."
"Surprisingly, if she spoke as a queen"
Phonetics Professor Jane Setter of the University of Reading agrees that there is some difference in the expression of the duchess in public since its transition to Great Britain, but "it's not huge."
Professor Setter said that the crowd "will make a difference" because of what is called placement when people adapt their language – consciously or unknowingly – to the people they talk with.
"We all do this to a certain extent – we speak differently with different people," said Professor Setter.
"In the social role as the one in which Megan is now, where she must meet many people and basically make a good impression on them in a short period of time, the opportunity to do this is very useful."
] "But it was It would be strange to take it too far. I do not think the British will perceive her if she suddenly starts to sound like she was on the EastEnders scene – or she spoke like a queen.
"She is the one she is, and it's important that she be authentic. Language is part of this."
Accents can reflect different things about people, said sociolinguist Dr. Ella Jeffries of the University of Essex.
And for someone, like a duchess, whose success may depend on an attempt to fit, changes in accents can occur naturally and quickly.
"Many different factors play an important role in who adapts, how they adapt and why," said Dr. Jeffreys.
"One who has a strong affinity with the region in which they grew up and is very proud of their heritage, for example, may not change the way they speak a lot – even if they move to the rest of the country or even abroad. 19659007] "However, someone with the parties who put on the map trying to" fit "or sound like they belong to a new group – British royalty, in the case of Megan – could find housing quite naturally and quite quickly
Can its background in acting activity play a role in how easy its emphasis can change?
"Of course, any potential trainer with the accent that she has, will make her more aware of the differences – and potentially better to simulate," said Dr. Jeffries. "But on the other hand, perhaps she has better control of her accent than others, and if she decides what she wants, she may remain firmly American."
And Professor Paul Kerswill, a sociologist at York University, is even less convinced. that "there is really nothing to go on."
"Megan is fairly consistent in its emphasis … is it really the" FedEx Girl "in 2011, or a lawyer in the Courts of the same year," he said.
" In the interview with Harry, the same thing applies: the only moment I felt that I had some kind of received pronunciation at my disposal
Interestingly, he added that the clothes of the duchess could be the cause of any change in accents.
"It has been proved that appearance, ethnicity and age affects what we think we hear, even if there is no difference in what is being played in audio," said Professor Kerswill.
Accent Megan: Examples of American English versus standard British
In the American English, "all" is pronounced more like "ol", while Br itons pronounce the word "orl." The duchess uses the more British "orl" when said "Yes, we all had a good day, I think," says Dr. Jeffries.  Consonances
In words ending with "t", American speakers usually sound definitive "t" weaker. The reporters of standard British English explode "t" – this means that it is strong as on The Duchess seems to be doing it, says Dr. Lindsay, when she says "sweet" here and here. Americans tend to just use the intonation rise, while in the British English field falls, and then rises. Dr. Lindsay says the duchess accepts the British style when she says: "Did you do this for us?"
