Too busy for much today. I did see this guide to Nottingham's lovely inimitable accent on Left Lion (again).
I was listening to a Podcast (ark at me!) from The Times a few weeks ago - an interview with Paul Weller. I remember him being interviewed in the late 1970s on TV - he had a hatchet of an accent then. You wouldn't think that there was a regional accent in Surrey, but our Paul had a peach of a one.
Today he has a nondescript middle England update of RP.
I listened to myself on that Little Atoms show a few weeks ago (admittedly, probably putting on my telephone voice) and my near-undetectable Stabbeau accent depressed the life out of me.
