received pronunciation

The standard accent of British English, which is typically spoken in the south of England. While RP is not intrinsically better than other regional accents, it is typically the accent native to, or adopted by, Britons with power, money, education and influence, a tendency that began in the early 20th century. It is the accent spoken or adopted by most doctors in the UK.
