I went to London, England for the first time several years ago and in no time I was speaking with an English accent.
It changes your mindset too.
Which is my main point about having a Lexington accent. I don’t change the way I pronounce things. But once I drive into the Lexington city limits a reflexive change comes over my entire being and I start to think of everthing in terms of the UK Wildcats basketball team.
Without me ever even opening my mouth.
