The American accents were developed when travelling around was a lot eaiser. British accents have a much older origin where people 20 miles away would barely come into contact. Because it wasn't as easy to meet people different to themselves accents diverged a lot. It's like when animals get trapped on a remote island and evolve differently, of course that takes a lot longer to happen than for an accent to change.

Thank you so much Cora. I lived in Manchester for 8 months and I returned to Brazil a month ago. I was missing the mancunian accent. It was hard in the beginning but I learned to love it and now I miss it so much. Expecially when you don't pronounce the 't' like 'water' and 'better'. You are lovely and your accent is beautiful. Obrigada 😊

Even then, I'm from California and my family was originally from Texas/Oklahoma. I now live in in the Midwest and even though I have a typical "american" accent, which i think the influence of California culture on media played a significant role in establishing it as "standard", there are some distinct differences I've noted. Specifically: 1. I tend to run my words together and drop the distinct pronunciation of vowels and syllables. For example, I've met two women named Elaine. (Forgive how i butcher the pronunciation here) One is from California and one is from Michigan. The California pronounces her name "uh-laine", de-emphasizing the E sound (which is how i pronounce it) and the one from Michigan pronounces her name "E-laine" with a strong E sound. Similarly, in Michigan there is a town named "Charlotte" which, in Michigan, they pronounce "Shar-lot" and I pronounce "Sharlet". 2. There is an over-pronunciation of vowel sounds in the northern mid-west states and a substitution of the "D" sound for "Th" in a word. Typically called, at least in Michigan, the "Yuper Accent" (for Upper Peninsula) a saying like, "Oh, Hey there!" would sound like "OOh, hey dere!". Kinda hard to write, but the O sound is over emphasized and the H of "hey" is de-emphasized. I've heard similar accents in Minnesota, North Dakota, and Wisconsin.

Just stumbled upon this entire series because of a convo I had a little while back. One of my friends was talking about "the British accent." I argued that there is no single British accent, just like there isn't just one single "American accent." People in Northern California - where we both live - speak differently than those from Southern California. And it's fairly easy to tell someone from Texas from someone from Alabama from someone from the Midwest US, New York, New England, etc, etc, etc. Of course, he understood that in an instant. But I sense that he still thinks there is only one British accent. Time to send him these videos!

Thanks, really fun series. I've wondered how the 18th Century British English accent evolved into the American English accent in those colonies. When I hear the lovely long-ahh discussion here 2:38 I hear a major difference pointing to the fundamental American accent. Coincidence?

I think the way that Americans generally pronounce 'a' is the same way that the Southern Irish pronounce it, as in 'last' or 'past'. Also the Irish say the word 'sure' so much in everyday life as in 'Sure, amn't I doing it, now!' The Americans say 'sure' a lot in their everyday life too. So many Irish went to America so maybe that was their contribution to the general American accent. I like to think so. I had a lot of ancestors that went from Ireland. I was born in Ireland and mainly brought up in Lancashire, so I have the benefit of both places which are lovely.

This isn't a different accent, it's a real dialect. An accent is a way of speaking that uses vowels or consonant sounds different from the standard. But in this case, not only do the sounds change, but also several words change. So it is a real dialect, a way of speaking understood only by people from the same area.

As stated previously, the Manc accent has it's regions, depending on the part of Manchester you're from. I take issue with "weather" or most words that end "er", weather should be pronounced "wevvuhhh" and drawn out at the end with the expelling of a breath!

My fathers side of my family celebrate our 400th year in America's in 2023. However my grandparents (All three remaining) came from Liverpool, Manchester and Birmingham respectively. All three came to Canada before World War One. They sounded very different in my memories to the examples that I hear on your Videos of these regions. I think a Century of time has had an effect on the English Language. My Manchester Grandmother had influences of Boston USA from listening to radio from that era. We are related to US President FDR and had that accent was learned in schools and repeated on radio. My Liverpool Grandfather was better educated in Victorian fashion. Slightly highbrow he never lost his accent although he lived well into the 1980's. There was very little slang in his speech and was an early pioneer of Radio Shows before ww2. Now I remember the least my Birmingham Grandmother from the foundry district. Her accent was strange She ended words such as Birming-HAM like Berming-JUM I dont know how HAM become JUM! But it was a hundred years ago that they left for the New World. 🤔

I think it’s fascinating how you British have so wide and distinctive accents (and dialects). It is almost like in sweden. In Norway they have wide accents and dialects too and speaks very much dialect with un-understanble vocabulary. In sweden we have heavy dialects too but not as widely spoken as our heavy distinctive accents. Denmark on the other hand doesn’t use dialects as much as sweden and the accents are less distinctive that in sweden. I know about two swiss people learned swedish from two different teachers with different accents and when the two swiss later spoke swedisg to eachother they first thought it was different languages😅 Not many languages have as distinctive accents (or dialects) that non-speakers can hear that two speakers speak differently. And many languages (for example german) have so distinctive dialects that they’re pretty much their own languages... and when the germans speak without local vocabulary i don’t hear much difference at all. But already before i learned english as a child i could hear big differences between two brits speaking in a movie if they had different accents and no that i understand them i hear it even more. And spanish for example. I learned spanish in school during higher ages but i already was very familliar with it since I’ve spent a month in spain every year which now adds up to almost two years in total. Ant to be honest. I don’t hear big differences of accents within spain. I hear big differences between latin america and spain but not within spain.... well the catalans and valencians that has their own languages as native have often a little colour of that in their spanish but hey... those languages already are very similar in accents;) I’ve been to britain too. And I noticed that people spoke with different accents no matter what age they had. Just like in sweden. They didn’t necessarily spoke dialect but with distinctive accent. The same thing appears in sweden. We speak with quite distinctive accents and put in some local or regional vocabulary in some places without thinking about it. Most people don’t speak “pure” dialects and many aren’t even able to since they don’t know all the vocabulary. It’s fascinating how there can be such big differences in pronunciation within the same country depending of location in some languages. I know about especially three provinces in southern sweden since they were danish until like 300 years ago (on of them is my home). I understand how dialects can be built... with slang for sertain things that later become the “normal” way of saying it in that area. But a dialect doesn’t necessarily have to be pronounced so different from another or from the standard language.

In some areas of the UK your accent can dictate what strangers think of you before they even know you. eg. On hearing a West Country, Geordie or Brummie accent people might wrongly assume you're thick. With a Scouse accent the assumption is that you're not trustworthy and always trying to scam someone. A general Scottish accent gives someone credibility which hasn't been earned yet and Black Country people are all assumed to be comedians. There's something calming and direct with a Manchester accent that you don't get elsewhere. Absolutely no airs and graces. It's comparatively easy for strangers to understand and it's warm and friendly just like the majority of people from that area! ps. Please don't think I'm biased as I don't have a Mancunian accent.

You wouldn't think that there are so many different accents on an island that's mostly flat. I could understand it in a place like Norway, or Switzerland, where people are isolated by valleys and mountains. I stream some Brit shows from time to time and sometimes I have to turn on the Captions. I remember when my 3rd cousin Finn came to America in 1999. When he visited the old-timers in Minnesota, who still spoke Norwegian, he was stunned when he heard a dialect from them that he hadn't heard since he was a child sitting on his granny's lap in Norway. He actually broke down when he heard it. It reminded him of a childhood faraway in time that had vanished in the mists of decades - and it overwhelmed him in a gush of emotion.
I just went through a pronunciation course and the very same reading was used to check our pronunciation at the beginning and the end of the course. Thank you! Thank you! From the very South of Mexico i. e. Acapulco.

One thing that I found interesting is how Cora pronounces "bath" like a Yank would but Anna uses the longer pronunciation of the "a", but with "Happy" Anna uses the same type of "a" that Cora uses in bath. Weird how language evolves.

Would be good to do a Salford one so you can see how it changes on the other side of Town. We sound nothing like this but most people would call us Manchester too.

While this is probably geared toward non-native English speakers, I wish you'd put the phonetic symbols for the vowels that the native speaker uses so that I can see the difference. I'm an actor and these are helpful for quick accent studies. Thanks for doing them!

I used to live in Manchester and I had this accent until I moved to London lol. My accent sounds pretty mixed now as I've been living in London for 7 years and i used to live in Manchester for 8 years and it's pretty cool to hear it again.

This is an interesting one. To me it sounds like a good accent for an authority figure to have. Cora's "don't keep me waiting" had almost a hint of menace to it.

No . You are easy to understand As someone from just outside Manchetser the only Americain accent I can see us struggling with is a really strong Amercain accent ( especially Southern accents ) which use a lot of local lingo . Then it becomes impossible. The futher South in the USA I have gone in the the harder it was to communicate.

When I visit Manchester 14years ago for my first time, it was too hard to understand Mancunion accent. As a Korean I have learned English during school time only in USA accent. But after 1 year experience in Manchester I could understand Manchester accent. And now, many years passed and I miss the accent. After watch this video, I miss Manchester city centre, tram, primark(😂) and many faces of old friends. I miss Manchester. I want to visit there again with my husband and child.

Cora sounds more like shes from Oldham / Rochdale than straightforward manc, but it's largely spot on. Btw, as a manc, my mum would give us a clip round the ear if I ever said "Wevver" instead of "weather", so I reckon that's got more to do with class than regional accent.

Really good. The only one I wasn't sure about was the dropping of th for f or v. I'm from Lancashire and many of my relatives, old and young, from Manchester. Never heard that. Wonder if that's a new variation from estuary English. But there's lots of diversity in the accent...I'm from West Lancashire and it's much more subtle than the Manchester accent but still clearly north west England! Proud of my accent though and won't change it even though been living in southern England for a long time
