I don't think Violet would have recognized Sophie's accent as American, actually. Accents changed a lot in those 90 years.
...but I guess we can say she's assuming that foreign accent = Amurrkan! Reasonable assumption. That or India.

Edit: Also, your background image is too small, so there's a white bar showing on the side. Maybe set the body background colour to black so that it doesn't stand out so much?

actually if this takes place during the 19th or 18th century, then Violet is well in the green for using the word "Yank" to describe Sophie

according to the etymology of the word, it was used as early as the 1700s by Englishmen to describe those in America or of American origin, and since the American continent was colonized by the English in the early 1600s, that gives plenty of time for a variation of different dialects to develop by at least the 1800s.

also, the 80s was a language of its own. RADICAAAAL

great page btw <3 <3

Perhaps Violet thinks the accent sounds stupid and is just bad at pronouncing "W"s.
