In lands I never saw -- they say
Immortal Alps look down --
Whose bonnets touch the firmament --
Whose sandals touch the town --

Meek at whose everlasting feet
A myriad daisy play --
Which, Sir, are you and which am I
Upon an August day?

Scousers and Brummies have the ugliest accents in the British Isles, study finds

A survey of what people think of regional accents has come up with no surprises when it comes to the accents from Liverpool and Birmingham.

The accent reckoned to be the nicest to the ear is from southern Ireland (but isn't always the easiest to understand).

There are some amusing links to follow to hear accents (but don't worry about the goat's accent...)
