Accent Tour Videos
« on: June 21, 2014, 09:00:02 AM »
It's fun to watch those videos where someone takes you on a tour of different accents.  Here's a recent good one demonstrating various british accents:


Anyone have other favorites?

@Mouser - thx for sharing that. Being a closet anglophile (i.e. New Englander) I'm always anxious to learn more about that funny island nation we have so much - and also so very little - in common with. :) :)

She does an impressive range of accents.

I feel like I'm being a fussy beggar if I say this, but I cant let it go:
if she's including Irish accents with the video title "British Accents", she may as well throw in American, Canadian, Caribbean, Indian, Australian, and a bunch of others...

Maybe you would have preferred she called it "accents of the British Isles?" :P

I have enjoyed the accent tag thing in YouTube in the past
e.g.
Scottish accent
Cajun accent

I generally find that people who 'do' accents are good - until you know the accents very well yourself, when it usually fails...
