AccentsSeptember 19, 2008
We all say we don’t have an accent, but we all do—to someone from somewhere else!
To hear the same very short script spoken by representative speakers in different states, countries, and regions of the world, go to http://accent.gmu.edu/browse_atlas.php, click on a region, then a flag. You’ll need your computer headphones or speakers turned on.
Now you can hear the differences between a New Zealand and Australian accent, between the west and east coasts in the US, between Irish and Scottish, and whatever other accents you want to listen to.
