Thom, you're the best and I love you ..... BUT
please don't say frAHnce. You're not French. You don't have a French accent. You should say frANce.
Listen to any British speaker. They NEVER try to use the accent of the country from the word they are saying.
They keep it real and just say all words as if they were English words. The main reason, in my opinion, is that it always sounds
pretentious. For those with a discerning ear, it sounds goofy to try to immitate an accent that you don't really speak.
I'm from the south, and I cringe when someone not from here tries to sound southern.
