Summary: What the Doctor hears when Amy speaks.
It doesn’t happen often.
Amy’s diction is much more polished; the strength of her accent worn down by years in Leadworth and a proper education.
She’s an emotional girl though, and when she’s frightened, or sentimental, and especially when she’s angry, he can hear the remnants of a full-blown brogue and it takes him back to another life, the regeneration that was most cruelly taken from him.
Amy has no idea, of course, and it makes her accent even thicker with rage when the Doctor smiles in the face of her fear or irritation.
Sometimes he does it on purpose.
