We love wasting hours at the Speech Accent archive at George Mason University. Where else can you listen to the English accents found on the Mortlock Islands in Micronesia? The mad linguists behind this archive's recordings found someone to say, "We also need a small plastic snake and a big toy frog for the kids" purely for our amusement. Surely this archive would help Alan Ball make True Blood sound realistic. Listen in, and compare these real accents to what you hear in typical SF. [The Speech Accent Archive]
