Th e entire pattern of pronunciation typical of a particular region or social group. Accent is a feature of dialect and can be classed as an aspect of non-verbal communication. Th e use of most languages is marked by differing dialects and their accompanying accents. In Britain a range of regional accents still survive and are important signs of regional identity and affiliation. Simon Elmes commenting on contemporary uses of accent found in the BBC Voices survey in his book entitled Talking for Britain: A Journey through the Nation’s Dialects (Penguin Books, 2005) notes that, ‘A striking feature of many of the … interviews has been the way in which specific accents and words are identifi ed as belonging very narrowly to a particular village or town.’
