My grandmother could recognize what street you were from just by listening to you speak a few sentences. Mind, that was in the days when people didn't move around a lot and you married the girl from number 7 and then took up residence at number 18. Close knit communities, they were.

Candide Thirtythree I think that London is the most likely place to hear any of these accents, and perhaps blended accents influenced by other places. That's just the nature of a large city. People pick up things they are exposed to over time, and it is natural that in a big city people are exposed to more accents more often.

+Candide Thirtythree There are language experts who recon you can tie down an accent to within about a 6 mile radius. I recon that may no longer apply due to the effects of media and mobility. I think is is probably more like 12 miles nowadays. Though who knows, maybe computer analysis will be able to bring it back down again.

From southeastern U.S., she’s charming, spritely and cute as a button. I wonder if she’s considered cheeky? 🤷🏻‍♂️ Not sure the name of the accent, but in Braveheart there’s a line I love. William goes to pick up Murron (🤤) in the rain. Her father’s answer is “not the now”. With the accent, it’s so awesome. OH! And though I doubt Brits even hear it, the substitution of “me” for “my” is simply divine! I know we in the States are annoying as we gush over your accents, but suppressing a compliment IN PERSON is almost asking too much. I try to hold out, knowing we do it so much.

I'm glad you brought this up, It's funny because Stephen Merchant (on XFM Ricky Gerais show) often comments that he is a typical Bristolian, but when I meet other Bristolians, I never think they sound even remotely similar to his accent. Dubliners sound like other dubliners, and Scouses sound like other Scouses, but Bristol is an anamoly somehow.

It's the same in Germany even though the explanation seems a bit more logical since it was seperated into 10701790170109 1/2 (not an accurate number) little states... It goes as far as that for example the average bavarian (not the one from Munich) generally has to be subtitled when talking on tv.

UK regional and local accents are due to people not having any great mobility - at least not until the mid nineteenth Century. It has nothing to do with having been invaded - the last time that happened was nearly a 1,000 years ago. Until the Industrial Revolution, and later the railways and bicycling, most people lived in the same town as their ancestors had done for hundreds of years, and accents remained very localised. You're wrong about travelling 50 miles though - travelling just to the next village (less than five miles away) would be enough to notice significant accent change, and sometimes they'd be more or less mutually incomprehensible. Travelling 50 miles away could mean passing through a dozen different accent zones, although most such local accent variations have given way to regional accents.

come to italy, I guess it's the same here. apart tuscan accent, I think every local accent has also his own dialect. many of them are so much different from italian that a person who comes form more than 150 miles away wouldn't understand half of the words, because they're totally different. E.G. chair is "sedia" in italian, "cadrega" in milan and "scrana" in bologna...

It's not just regions, there are very specific changes that locals can detect from just a few miles. Portsmouth has a southern, round accent with accented vowels almost like Dorset, yet Havant a couple of miles away is a much flatter, more classic South Coast accent. The same in Cheshire; in Congleton, people talk much as they do across most of Cheshire such as in Crewe, Middlewich, Alsager and Alderley Edge. Yet, three miles away in Biddulph (which is in Staffordshire) they talk in a much more midland-affected Stoke-on-Trent accent with the long 'ooook' sounds such as lewk (look) and bewk (book)

​@Sean Leith My guess on why there are so many accents is back in the day there were lots of languages you see, and the way those languages used syllables probably impact the accents of today Like welsh accent sounds like the language in the way of pronunciation I don't know much about the language history of the uk but Wales, Scotland, Ireland and Cornwall spoke celtic languages and because that they sound in the words of my Welsh Mother. "Like uneducated cabbage farmers." North East England was taken over by the vikings, perhaps some old Norse got in the accents? villages did get a bit of old Norse in village names like Grimsby which means "Grim's Village" Grim was the guy who founded it so I guess he's a creative chap Enjoy this rant about history, cabbage farmers and a Norwegian fisherman.

I’ve learned so much about accents since I started DMing. Love learning about these differences through such a small nation.

Yeah, the UK's plethora of accents is pretty crazy, given its small size. I live in Liverpool, for example, and all you need to do is go around 15 miles down the motorway and you have Warrington, whose accent is entirely distinguishable and different from the Liverpool accent. Another 20 miles and you have Manchester, whose accent again is entirely different. Brilliant.

Wow! Very talented! I'm American and can't even begin to do American accents! (Yes, we do have very diverse accents, and no, not just Southern drawl.) If you've ever heard Pioneer Woman, Reed Drummond, my Idaho cousins sound just like her ("cuk" the casserole at 350 degrees) and I think even they sound funny.

I used to live in St Helens, pronounced Sintellins. And they have a northern accent but it's different to the Lancashire accent. And literally a five minute drive away in Prescot, they have thick scouse accents. It's crazy how suddenly accents can change in Britain.

Jack Richards I’m from the countryside in England and I speak sort of like the person in this video, but all I know about scouse is what my dad taught me: “If a’ dint drink me milk a’ wunt be gud ‘nough to ple’ for Accrington Stanley “Accrington Stanley?

Excellent work! I grew up in mid Lancashire (Eccleston near Chorley) and was sandwiched between the accents of Preston and Wigan. You did a Preston accent which was pretty spot-on but how about a Wigan accent? It is markedly different. I have lived in South Australia since 1979 and people occasionally suggest I now have a South African accent. Go figure!

So crazy to me as an American that's there's such wildly different accents so close together. I live in the New England and we have basically one accent for whole region, which is almost 1.5 x bigger than England. Basically there's the sort of regular Ameican accent, the super thick Boston accent, and shades of gray between the two. And that's it.

Our accents aren’t as distinct, but after living 20+ years north of Boston, there are definitely differences between North Shore, Boston city, South Shore, western Mass, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, and Maine that I can hear. But nowhere near as pronounced as British regional accents.

The west county accent (which is rhotic) was much more prevalent in the 1600 and 1700s in England, which is why standard American and Canadian is rhotic. But the Northeast of the Us (think Boston and New York) is non-rhotic and has more in come with standard British English than some would like to admit. It had its influences directly from London influences. Love the study of how different our common language can be and the historic reasons why.

My dad grew up in northern New Jersey (USA) with a mother from Manchester, UK. His family had this idea that they were instilled with proper English from birth, and as we grew up, we recognized that their accent was bizarre! My grandmother used to drill me to say "Look in the cook book" with long oo's, as in pool.

Accents and idiolects are fascinating. I have an autistic genius friend who could pinpoint most of my accent is Pacific Northwestern (U.S.), with bits of Tulsan (My grandma's from Tulsa, Oklahoma), unidentified British English (when I was 14, I was thrilled to have found out my grandpa's grandpa was from somewhere in England, as I loved the accents, so I practiced "one" I picked up from watching PBS shows. That went on for a whole year, until I discovered it was difficult to hide it. Parts of it still sticks in my speech to this day, after I gave up trying to unstick it all.), and a little of a language I made up for a book series I'm writing.
