“Received pronunciation” is an accent of Standard English in the United Kingdom and is defined as “the standard accent of English as spoken in the south of England”


RP enjoys high social prestige in Britain and was being thought of as the accent of those with power, money, and influence, though it may be perceived negatively by some as being associated with undeserved privilege.
