    Looking at the American thread got me thinking about a British one.

    As I have noticed from the many friends I have @ South Park Studios, they find my accent to be quite strange, and from what I can tell certainly from American members, they are generally used to either London / Southern, or Scottish (Glasgow) accents.

    How would I describe myself?

    Lived near East Midlands Airport all my life, further education I did up in Sheffield, South Yorkshire. I have actualy got a North Derbyshire / South Yorkshire (Sheffield accent), and same is true in the slang I tend to use too.

    My YouTube chan here, with me demonstrating some slot machines I have restored, so you get an idea what I sound like....

    Any more of you British \ Irish \ Scottish \ Welsh , want to jump in, and show the world what you sound like?

    I was born in Surrey and despite moving to Essex when I was 5, and then on to Norfolk in adulthood, I still speak with my parents' 'BBC English' accent.

    I just finished doing a voice over for a cartoon with a somewhat exaggerated Essex accent; does that count?

    Heh, pulling off a southern accent (Especially a chav style one), is harder than it looks, but hope you managed to pull it off.

    One thing I forgot to mention, is I have two voice styles.... my normal one on youtube, and my callcenter / telephone one, which is quite different.

    interesting. not being or familiar with the variety. are there any stars or movies that would be representative of the variety of accents? I would like to appreciate the fact that I can at least id people I meet with some knowledge of where they may be from. Language and dialects interests me a great deal.

    good thread.

    Point of fact for the title of this post, Wales and Scotland ARE British.

    I miss my elders. My great grandfather was Irish and his offspring spoke with his Irish brogue. I loved to listen to them talk when I was little. The r's would roll off their tongue and the accent would come out strong when the guys all got into a heated argument.
