Oxbridge and Oxbridge accents
Posted by Word Camel on January 21, 2002
Where did the term "Oxbridge" come from? I'm also wondering if there is such a thing as an Oxbridge accent. I once introduced two Oxford graduates, whose accents mutated as they spoke into something very unlike the way either had spoken before, clipped, fast and rather hard-to-understand. Perhaps someone experienced in these matters could comment.
