A second poll of BrE pronunciation preferences was carried out in late 1998. It was based on a self-selected sample of nearly 2000 speech-conscious respondents, who answered a hundred questions about words of uncertain or controversial pronunciation. The findings allow us to answer questions about lexical incidence and sound changes in progress.
