Where I come from some young people talk like this:

These video clips are from a British comedy series.
Estos videos son de Britanico programa de humor (Is this sentence correct? I’m trying my best to construct my own Spanish sentences)

And in my town and others near me people talk like this! It’s the Essex dialect, bit different to a standard London one but is very similar to Cockney.
This one is an Essex dialect:
Esté es Essex dialecto:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NxT5w...eature=related



...And this one is Cockney dialect:
...Y esté es Cockney dialecto:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n-KAx...eature=related


We shouldn’t get accent and dialect mixed up though. An accent is how someone sounds from a different country like a Scottish accent and English accent. A dialect is the regional differences of word pronunciation and use from region to region, like Essex dialect, and a Cornish dialect...just thought I would add that.

What kind of accent is the first British comedy clip?

The difference between 'accent' and 'dialect' that I have learned is actually a bit different. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I have learned that an 'accents' are mutually intelligible ways of pronouncing the same language. For instance, I have a southern US accent, but it would be no sweat for me to have a conversation in English with a Californian, a New Yorker, a New Zealander, etc. On the other hand, 'dialects' are mutually UNintelligible ways of speaking the same written language. For example, a Mandarin-Chinese speaker would not be able to have a spoken conversation with a Cantonese speaker, but would be able to communicate perfectly well in the written language, because the written Chinese language remains the same, regardless of dialect.

This is a long post. I've hidden the videos, so loading the page won't be a problem for slower connections. (Let me suggest not to quote the whole message)

I have mentioned some times that there is no such thing as "Latin American" Spanish, and maybe there is no such thing as a "national accent" in many countries. But there is a standard Spanish where we understand each other.
As an example, I have selected some interviews with high-level politicians from many Spanish speaking countries.
I chose politicians because regardless of what they say, they will use this standard language. And I chose interviews because they speak relaxedly and naturally, so their accents are appreciated.

And...The accent of this man is completely different from what you've heard before:

*The link for Equatorial Guinea accent was no longer valid, so I found this one. Listen to the interviewer; the interviewed man is speaking Spanish with his French accent.

Very interesting... (although time consuming!!!)
(Mujica, Uruguay is maybe the most entertaining one!)

I include here some "genuine" Spanish Castilian accent, with our "hero" Adolfo Suárez... who is the architect of the Democracy in Spain...



Curiosamente, el Presidente de Guinea Ecuatorial, tiene un acento bastante peninsular en la mayor parte de su discurso... aunque tiene unas vacilaciones entre la "z" y la "s" ('th' and 's' sounds) que no estoy seguro de que sigan una pauta concreta...

Me falta escuchar a unos cuantos de los otros presidentes... pero me parece que falta un acento cubano...
Lo que me recuerda a un chiste de Mao visitando a Castro... que pongo en el hilo correspondiente...

@Pablo: Consumidor de tiempo, sí... y no veas buscar las entrevistas.

Y cierto, me faltaron al menos Cuba y Panamá.

Así que Panamá:





Las entrevistas con Fidel Castro tienen muy mal sonido, pero se subsanará la deficiencia del acento gracias a la televisión de Miami:

¡Muy interesante!

Now, checking something else I found an English (Georgian accent) which sounds interesting to me... (there are some words on the ad I cannot totally get... but overall one can follow it pretty well.

http://www.donzellajamesforsenate.co...Day-Ready.html

I take the voting for this already occurred... so no vested interest on my part to promote this political leader... (although I personally like the lady and the kids talking...)
