Guess the Accent Game

Here's a neat game where one tries to guess the accent of people reading poetry. Catholicgauze's score 29 points (7 out of 16). Try and top that as you realize you only know accent stereotypes and not the real thing. (Hat tip: Foreign Policy Blog)

I got 31, my linguist neighbor only got 17! But, he doesn't get out much...

Very interesting blog, by the way.

I got 8 for 30 total points. Tough game - I do have to wonder how much these people represent their areas in some cases. The Glasgow one was the easiest to get both parts, IMO.
