Accents

As someone with no choice but to speak with an electronic  American accent, the regional variations in how people talk has always intrigued me. I just came across this neat little  run-down of all the major accents of great Britain. I find it quite call, and was especially amused to see where they took their examples from – for the Liverpudlian accent, they selected Lister from red Dwarf. I’m fairly familiar with British accents, of course, so it would be interesting to now see if I can find a similar video exploring variations in how Americans or Australians talk (mind you, they all sound the same to me…)

  1. There are loads of different voices available now…you do have choice, but I agree that there are few regional accents. My son has not had an American voice for about 15 years…
