Regional Accents

Regional accents dictate different pronunciations
For example:
glass and glass
grass and grass
raspberrry and raspberrry
tomato and tomato
potato and potato

Have noticed recently that more newreaders are applying 'local pronunciation' to place names.
Best example is Newcastle being spoken as Newcastle.
This also applies to international names - Afghanistan has been pronounced as Afghanistan

(Hang on? This doen't work when written down)
