Some of my friends tease me for my Michigan accent. Others say I sound like I'm from Connecticut. If you're looking for an entertaining way to spend a couple of hours, check out this speech accent archive, sponsored by a linguistics professor at George Mason University. The site allows you to listen to hundreds of people--born in cities all over the world--reading the same passage in English. You can sort by geographic region (and click on, say, Detroit, Michigan), or by the speaker's native language (and click on, say, French10: male, Bordeaux, France).
