english with an accent

Recently announced on Linguist List is a companion website for English with an Accent by Rosina Lippi-Green. I use this text as primary reading in a class I teach called Language and Society, whose focus is on addressing issues of folk linguistics.

Accent has an important impact over English Language. There is british accent, american accent, chinese accent etc.. If you know british accent very well then there are good scope for you.

Thanks

I was on an exchange in Birmingham, England.... I really love the british accent, i met many people from eastern europe, china etc. i think it is interesting how everyone speaks english with a totally different accent. Well, I would love to have a british accent cause i think the german one is not that nice. Linktextdurgo

Maria..I am not really agree with you..Better if you say that know English, but change your accent according to the persona and place.

I have recently written a book on language learning and I wonder if you and your readers would be interested in commenting and critiquing? I have posted the first three draft chapters online, and I'm looking for proofreaders and reviewers.

Regards,
Rick
