Received Pronunciation (RP) is a standard form of English that is widely recognized and used in education, media, and professional settings. It is also known as the Queen's English or BBC English. RP is not a fixed or uniform accent, but rather a range of varieties that share some common features of pronunciation. Some of these features are:

  • The vowel in words like bath, grass, and dance is long and open, as in father.



  • The vowel in words like lot, cloth, and thought is the same, as in pot.



  • The vowel in words like nurse, bird, and work is a schwa, as in about.



  • The consonant /r/ is only pronounced when it is followed by a vowel, as in red and carry. It is silent when it is followed by a consonant or at the end of a word, as in car and far.



  • The consonant /t/ is often pronounced as a glottal stop, as in bottle, especially in casual speech.



  • The consonant /l/ is clear when it is followed by a vowel, as in light and play. It is dark when it is followed by a consonant or at the end of a word, as in milk and tall.



  • The consonant /j/ is often inserted before the vowel /u/ in words like suit, cute, and tune, making them sound like suit-yuh, cute-yuh, and tune-yuh.



  • The intonation of RP is generally level or slightly falling, with a rise at the end of questions.
