Sounds Familiar?

Sounds Familiar? [requires Flash] from the British Library examines accents and dialects in Britain.

You can listen to recordings of people talking: for example, Pam from Norwich. There is an analysis of her accent and use of that as a subject pronoun (instead of it).

A few maps show where people use “non-standard” forms such as I were and you was.
