Note:This competition is now closed for judging,once complete a second thread with a poll of the top 5 will be created.

Judges:
1.noxiosimitator
2.uhh_me?
3.Kensai
4.lucid_strat
5. carmel_l
The judges will not be participating and are not British.Judging will take place after all entries are submitted.


Everyone said this sentence to take part,thanks to Rabidguitarist for this.
"And then: birth, flowering and decline are very general, very vague notions under which, to be sure, everything can be arranged, but through which nothing can be understood. Decay itself is prefigured in the living; its shape should therefore be just as much grasped in its specific characteristic as the shape of life. Finally, when we glance at history, are Epicureanism, Stoicism and Scepticism..particular phenomena? Are they not the prototypes of the Roman mind, the shape in which Greece wandered to Rome? Is not their essence so full of character, so intense and eternal that the modern world itself has to admit them to full spiritual citizenship?"
-'The Difference Between the Democritean and Epicurean Philosophy of Nature',Karl Marx

After the judges have made their decision a second thread will be made,including the top 5 (top 10 was too much to ask) samples. A poll will be put up and UGers may vote for their favourite accent by UGer,not area. The poll will be closed after 2 or 3 days and the UGer with the highest number of votes will be crowned as winner.

If you don't know how to pronounce the words, can't you just listen to the entries so far?

And by the way, I didn't realise that was going to be a problem when I picked the material, it just happened to be what I was reading at the time.

There is no such thing as a British accent. You can either have an English, Welsh, Scottish, or Irish accent.

i'll judge if you need another one.

also you have an extra "is" in your phonetic version of scepticism, it should be more like skept-is-izm.

edit: bah, can't open imdeth's file. cbf downloading anything to be able to open it, so i guess i can't judge.
