Hi,

I *suspect* there was no attempt at an upper-class accent, down here in New Zealand and Australia 'Darta' is the usual pronunciation... it often grates on us when we hear Dayta. That having been said, some people down here do use Dayta, and some change between the two randomly. I'd suggest it's more of a cultural or general accent issue rather than someone attempting to sound classier than they are.

Smile | :)
