    There is something that has to be understood straightaway about the British: As soon as you open your
    mouth, your listener puts you into a social category. “Language most shewes a man: speake that I may
    see thee,” wrote the playwright Ben Jonson as early as 1641 to point out that your life could literally depend on the way you spoke. The principle of respecting the King’s English was already well established by the mid-seventeenth century and we have to go back some two-hundred years further to find where it all started.
