Sorry to interrupt, but I think you'll find there is a huge difference between the Cornish accent and the Yorkshire accent, or the Brummie accent and that of say someone from Essex.

Okay accents...try this :-) http://accent.gmu.edu/browse_language.p ... ge=english Lot's of variations of the same paragraph in different regional and national accents

This is best collection of lots of contemporary accents spoken in English across the world http://www.ku.edu/~idea/europe/europe.htm

Or this http://www.bl.uk/collections/sound-arch ... tml#listen

This British guy's take on the difference between American and "English" is quite intersting too. http://www.peak.org/~jeremy/dictionary/chapters/

Have at it lads and lassies huge variations Loads of fun for all the family

Originality means writing music from the heart, not screwing around to try and make something "different" than what comes naturally.
