Now, can you tell me which area of the realm this lady comes from (or pretends to come from)?
I can provide you with subtitles in case you don't understand the torrent of sounds coming out of this beautiful mouth.

Gonna try to find out who the actress is and where she spent her speech-forming yearsDelete
@Lipman: Exactly! That's her! And a genuine Liverpudlian. Wikipedia mentions her appearance in Hotel BabylonDelete
I must confess the last time I guessed an accent was Ulster it turned out to be Manchester (or perhaps the other way round)Delete
Thanks to all of you for 'orienting' the lady accentwise.ReplyDelete
It's the accent of my native area so I'm kind of bilingual. Sooner or later I'll do a post on it.ReplyDelete
@Sidney: Liverpool, like Ulster (and Birmingham, Newcastle, and Glasgow), has default intonational rises. Manchester, like Southern British, has default falls. Hope that helps!
Thank you Geoff.Delete
