Recording of the Week: Ever heard a broad Norfolk accent?

Listen to this speaker from Mulbarton in Norfolk. You can also read via a link on the same web page a lingustic analysis of the lexis, phonology and grammar for this recording.

Accents-and-dialects 'Recording of the Week' highlights gems from the Archival Sound Recordings website, selected by British Library experts or recommended by listeners. This week's item was selected by Jonnie Robinson, a specialist in sociolinguistics & education at the British Library. The recording was made for the BBC in 1998 for the Millennium Memory Bank, one of the largest single oral history collections in Europe, that along with recordings from the Survey of English Dialects collection includes many other recordings of Norfolk speakers from Norfolk.
