  • Bill Pellowe, Kinki University Kyushu School of Engineering, and ELT Calendar.
  • Robert Chartrand, Kurume University.

Today we discussed accents, starting with a look at an online quiz that can accurately place your accent to a region of the USA with only 13 questions. During the conversation, Bill mentioned a website that has compiled recordings of a wide variety of accents of English; he couldn't remember the name of the site at the time, but here it is now: International Dialects of English Archive (web.ku.edu/idea).
