Accent and identity: Catherine and Peter

Duration: 03:33 minutes

Do you have an accent, or have you lost yours over time?

Catherine and Peter have lived in America, Northern Ireland and England, so even they are confused about their accents.

But sometimes the way we talk defines us.

Why is that?

And why do we so often copy other people’s accents?

Catherine and Peter consider their accents, their identities and where home really is.
