Video: A Brief Tour of the Varying Accents of the British Isles from a Dialect Coach – Awesome Video

Screen Shot 2014-04-07 at 9.58.52 AM

In this lovely, if rather short video, a British dialect coach named Andrew Jack, gives a tour of the various accents of the British Isles. He does not include them all. Geordie is missing but it’s definitely a nice overview.

    hey, that was great, jonathan, but how could you leave out the geordie accent and the
    mackem,for that matter?

    Oh there’s lots more that could have been added, but that would at least double the length of the video. How about East Midlands, Gloucestershire, Herefordshire and Wourcestershire accents, West Midlands – especially Brummie (Birmingham) and Black Country dialect, North Midlands including Staffordshire, Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and S Yorks, Manchester (definitely not the same as Lancashire), Cumbrian, Edinburgh (very genteel), Aberdonian, Orkney and Shetland dialects…
    And I’m sure the brief coverage of Dublin doesn’t do justice to the variety of Irish accents!
