An audio tour of the accents of the British Isles

As always, I have no idea what to call that hunk of islands over there – sometimes I think they have as many names for themselves as Facebook has genders – but this is a very cool and quick survey of the various accents of England, Scotland, Ireland, Wales and whatever else I’m missing.


What’s interesting is that even to an American ear, you can hear the differences, and many actually sound familiar (Torchwood fans will recognize the Welsh accent).

(I’m told that in order to better see my Facebook posts in your feed, you need to “follow” me.)
