When researching accents around the UK for a project at work, I came across You say potato, which is a great resource to use with students and source of fun. Other useful resources on accents and dialects are:

BBC Voices

International Dialects of English Archive

Sounds familiar?

If you have a strong regional accent and would like to help with our project, please get in touch. We’ll ask you to talk about a subject of your choice for about two minutes, then transcribe the recording and upload it to our university VLE.
