    Henry Higgins, forty years old, is a bundle of paradoxes. In spite of his brilliant intellectual achievements, his manners are usually those of the worst sort of petulant, whining child. He is a combination of loveable eccentricities, brilliant achievements, and devoted dedication to improving the human race. This is done by looking at the phonological, grammatical and lexical features of an accent or dialect. Trudgill will have been looking at phonological features alone in this case. If you wish to read more about what his investigation consisted of, Joan Beal explains it in detail in her book ‘Language and Region’. [1] Accents and Opinions.
