Default One Woman, 17 British Accents

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FyyT2jmVPAk

Being a Yank I can't vouch for how accurate this is but I did find it very entertaining. Plus I find her kind of cute. Like me some women in glasses. Yes, yes I am shallow.

Very entertaining, and some pretty accurate accents there.
She missed out Black Country, which is the other part of the West Midlands.
My mate asked his girlfriend, who was from Manchester, why she never spoke to his mother.
She replied that in the five years they had been together she hadn't understood one word his mother said.
Understandable, we call Birmingham for example, Brummagem.
'I sid im yesterdee' I saw him yesterday.
I'm hearing it less and less nowadays, not sure why, but it's certainly unique.

All the best.

Aren`t these actually dialects, and not accents ?

I thought Robbie Burns was an Ayrshire poet.

Anyway, Stanley Baxter was good :

She doesn't get the North Wales accent right, as it's rather more guttural. This chap gives a pretty good rendition of a number of regional Welsh accents:

North Wales at 1:06, but it's worth listening to the whole clip to appreciate the differences in accents throughout Wales.

I'd say they were accents, Jon. The timbres and cadences are very different between each.

I can pull a better London accent from my backside, and I'm German! Best London Accent ever is Brick Top in Snatch (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WcG3JRIF05w)

Also, no scouse. What an omission.

Apart from all that, I love it!

Gareth, which area of Wales would you say Talfryn Thomas's Mr Cheeseman was from?

Hmm.. I remember being taught that countries had accents, and regions were dialects.
For example, you can have a Welsh accent, but not a Cardiff accent.
