Plain & Fancy

A few years ago, at a public meeting Dan was attending for work, a woman rose to comment. She had no discernible accent ... except when saying the name of our city, which curiously caused her to become British for just a moment before reverting to Yankdom at the next word.

Alex-ahn-dria. So elegant. So posh. Who wouldn't want to live there?

We've been saying it that way ever since.

It certainly passes the locked teeth test. If you can say a word without moving your jaw and it has a letter that can be drawn out it is posh. Try Sylvia and Ashton.
