I'm originally from the east coast of England, from Lincolnshire, but I lived and worked in the south west and the south east for several years. I think my Lincolnshire accent has almost disappeared, but I can still hear the two-tone vowels of some words, and I still have the dead-giveaway short northern-English vowels. If I was a convincing Lincolnshire dialect speaker, I'd add some here as I find it very poetic (as did Alfred, Lord Tennyson, who wrote many poems in Lincolnshire dialect). However, I think my pronunciation, while not RP or BBC, is clear. I now live and work in the Netherlands, and several non-native speakers have commented that my spoken English is clear and easy to understand, so I'm pretty confident to record samples on this website. My spoken Dutch, however, is a completely different matter and in this respect I'm a user rather than a supplier!
