Russ Kent asked for information in this thread regarding websites where
his students can listen to American dialects. This site, the Speech
Accent Archive, may be a good starting point. It's compiled and
maintained by Steven Weinberger, George Mason University:
http://accent. <http://accent.gmu.edu> gmu.edu
Samples of native English speakers reading the same text can be found
A large number of US regional accents are included, as well as British,
Australian, etc. You can listen to the texts being read and there are
phonetic transcriptions of each speaker's pronunciation.
