He had originally (in 1908) used 'Standard Pronunciation' but came to sharply regret having done so.
This is an undertaking in progress to identify and exemplify, far more fully than we know of appearing anywhere else hitherto, the differences between the General American and the General British accents of English. "Long i" meaning /aɪ/ and "short i"meaning /ɪ/ 29a. Certain writers have taken up the expression 'Standard Southern British' no doubt in some cases influenced by seeing it as the choice of Francis Nolan one ofnot accord official recognition to any such terms.
These are the two most widely known and least regionally affiliated varieties of English pronunciation. The "short o" of earlier English 29b "Short o" before stops etc 29c. Regarding this SSB, the designation Southern is clearly unsuitably limited and the term 'standard', which Jones came to reject so very emphatically, is undesirably controversial. From this it may be gathered that the Jonesian term 'RP' Wells chose to use in 1982 and the term GB are in effect synonymous.

Consequently they are the two chosen as models by most of those who feel inclined to aim at adopting a fairly close approximation to a native-speaker variety of English. The most full and up-to-date description of GB is to be seen in Alan Cruttenden's unrivalled classic The phonological symbols used in this work have not been adopted as preferred choices from among any existing transcriptions but have been selected with the purpose of representing GA and GB in such a way that as far as possible their unity rather than the differences between them should be highlighted.
