Participants from England needed for psychology experiment on regional accents!

#1
Hi people of the Pit

I am currently studying psychology at Lincoln university and i'm completing my disseration on how different regional accents are perceived by different people.

I know this is a long shot but if you are from the Yorkshire/Lancashire area OR from the South East region of england ie (london) and speak with the accent of either of these places and would like to help out a poor bloke behind in his dissertation then send me a private message with email address and i can send you the experiment via email . All information kept confidential of course and ill send you the message using my uni account so you know im legit .

It consists of watching a series of audio and video clips of speakers followed by a comprehension task.

I think it's sick to force kids to take part in hate mongering and sick for spoonman to think its right for any adult to throw anything at a child.

I'm from the south-west, I'd be happy to help, but you don't seem to need it from people from my area.

I'm from Yorkshire. I could probably help.

Does it count if I am born there?

I'm from the south-east/home counties area, but I don't know if my accent would be of any use to you, it's pretty bog standard RP. I'd be happy to help though.

I don't know if it helps you in any way, but I know of some articles that have been written about exactly this subject for Dutch accents. I could point you to them if you like?

So Estuary English accent would be of no use (ie. stereotypical essex accent)?

Don't be silly. We all like to make fun of people from Limburg. Or Groningen. Yes, in fact, a Groninger accent is worst.

say what you want, but that has actually been proven

No. Unless accents are transferred in the first days after birth it's entirely irrelevant.

Best near Eindhoven. Not exactly Limburg, but at least I can relate to them far better than those above the rivers

I was born & raised in Cumbria (the accent there is similar to Lancashire), but I've lived in Wiltshire long enough to have lost about 90% of my northern accent - my friends always know when I've visited my family in Cumbria because I get a bit of the accent back for a week or two!

May be able to help depending on the time - how long are you expecting the videos & task to take?

I'm from Scotland and am offended by this.
But boys will be boys and girls have those eyes
that'll cut you to ribbons, sometimes
and all you can do is just wait by the moon
and bleed if it's what she says you ought to do
