Ah, you've saved me doing it then. Well, the first one, anyway. Although I suspect these days I've got a touch more Yorkshire than I imagine.

Um..? Nice Oxfordshire accent, especially in Pop goes the weasel. Some experiment on dialects, presumably?

Your voice is uncannily similar to that of the preschool secretary at Peter's school. I *just* spoke to her for about ten minutes and came home and listened to you speak You sound just like Linda. (Yes, you have the same accent, but the *voice* is so close...)

Ah, you should have got someone else to transcribe, just to prove to Tony that the Brits heard the 'a'!

You have a very pretty voice.

FWIW, we spent a few days this summer with people from Yorkshire and their accent was SO broad and hard to understand, particularly for DH, who is NOT a language person to begin with. I quite enjoyed it, much like trying to understand another language.

I listened to this at home, and now I am at work, so I can't re-listen to confirm, but you do say merry/marry/Mary differently, don't you? Or at least a couple of them?

I'll have to do this tonight -- I say all of them exactly the same way, which is apparently less common than I used to think!

I love it! Your "polite" voice is definitely higher than your "broader accent" voice. It is very neat to hear the difference between marry/merry/Mary since I've always been on the end of those conversations that wonders what the heck you Brits are talking about.

interesting that in 'coffee' in Oxfordshire accent you can perhaps hear the beginings of what became the New Yorker's 'caw-fee'.

A UK -moved-to-USA friend of a friend reported that her child came home from school one day having leant the two 'o's - the long 'o' as in 'coffee' and the short 'o' as in 'hot', i.e. 'hat cawfee'. Which freaked them out a bit.

I think you do sound bit deeper in person, from what I can remember.
