comment Is posh English an accent/dialect or a style/manner of talking?
@TimLymington everything is subject to change. My question is how much today's language of posh people in different English speaking countries have elements in common.

comment Why is accent less distinguishable when singing?
@Rathony I don't hear British accent in Adele song to be distinguished from Taylor Swift's American accent. If they talk in an interview, I can find who is British and who American, but not in the song. Though, not a good example. Commonsense tells me someone who sings country is American.

comment Minister vs. Secretary
@Drew I mean in English language, each unit of other governments is called ministry, but in English speaking countries, each unit of the government is called Department with a Secretary. Why English speaking people use the term ministry for other governments, but Department for their own governments.

comment How to say hello to a group of people?
@Kris I'm not specifically looking for a creative expression, I just quoted that it is OK to me if an idea is creative and less common.
