Submitted online, here are the responses I have received so far:

‘Accents and what they can signal are too important to ignore' yet accent modification ‘can certainly be mentally tiring’

‘I view it as a form of acting.....generally I would much rather speak in my natural accent’.

'I feel too posh when…with people with stronger northern accents'

'There’s an enormous prejudice against people from Liverpool.....it becomes second nature to become a chameleon in certain company’
