"The April rain, the April rain,
Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
The cuckoo through the April rain
Calls once again."

Mathilde Blind, April Rain

Scousers and Brummies have the ugliest accents in the British Isles, study finds

A survey of what people think of regional accents has come up with no surprises when it comes to the accents from Liverpool and Birmingham.

The accent reckoned to be the nicest to the ear is from southern Ireland (but isn't always the easiest to understand).

There are some amusing links to follow to hear accents (but don't worry about the goat's accent...)
