If you're new to North Carolina (welcome!), you probably think we all sound the same.
Ah! But the trained ear knows a Boone accent from a Johnston County accent. We've got many different dialects within the state.
It's the same in the United Kingdom, and a great Web site lets you hear the different accents and dialects from our English cousins.
Enjoy! You'll never watch "Are You Being Served?" or "EastEnders" the same way again.
