British Library dialect site

From Lifechanges … delayed on February 11th:

bq. This morning, the story that the radio awoke us with was about the British Library’s new Collect Britain website, and specifically the collection of English Accents and Dialects. The site features audio clips from the “Survey of English Dialects” and the “Millennium Memory Bank,” capturing regional variation in English language.

Also picked up by language hat and Trevor / kaleboel, and emailed to me by Tim Slater.

Northern English accents are online now.
