Last Friday Sarah and I completed the final edit of the documentary, The Way We Talk.
Along with a jam packed production folder, the 37 minute documentary was completed and submitted to the University for marking, completing our final year studying at the University of Lincoln. Sarah and I are very happy with the final edit, and would like to thank every single person who has given up their free time to help contribute to the programme.

The Way We Talk
Today Sarah and I went to Camden Market, one of the most multi cultural places in the UK. There we managed to talk to several passers by about the way they talk, discussing what situations they’ve been in where they’ve had to alter their accent. We also spoke about the connotations people often made about their personalities when hearing them talk, e.g. a young lady told us that coming from Essex often meant people assumed she was stupid. The audio is great, and we will be sharing some of it on the blog very soon.
Found this great website which examines the features of regional British accents!
