A little obtuse perhaps but hearing Graeme McDowell after his win at the US Masters golf championship and his ridiculous mid/transatlantic accent, i was thinking about how accents do change and etymology and stuff. Anyways i have always thought it a little odd that our American cousins pronounce the word buoy so very differently ie booey where as we pronounce it boy.
