Link: listen to real speech accents!

I found this link today, thanks to Jami Gold on Twitter. It's a website where you can go and listen to recordings of different speech accents. They have a terrific search page where you can specify the native language of the speaker, gender, place of birth, and age. You can even specify details about the accent itself! This is a fantastic resource for those working with dialects.
