What's this accent?
I was curious.
I downloaded the Librivox recording of a 17th century treatise translated from the Spanish entitled Chocolate, an Indian Drink.
I should have known better.
There's some curious information buried in there, but you know what 17th-century people are like: they "prove" something by argument based on definitions rather than by investigation. Chocolate is "hot and dry" but also "moist and cold". It is obviously compounded of quicksilver and sulphur. Good grief, I hope not, since "quicksilver" is mercury ...
Anyway, what I wondered about is this: what is this lady's accent?
LibriVox » Chocolate: or, An Indian Drinke
I mean the one reading Section 3. She doesn't sound at all like jimmy Moore, for example.
