Phonetics and Phonology
Hi everyone again!!
I �m working this  year as assistant on Phonetics and Phonology, and I have to tech English varieties. The trouble is, that I have plenty of theory, but I don �t have audio, material. So, I need audio material on: Irish English, Australian English, New Zealand English, South African English, and if possible any other variety. I would be very glad if you could help me with some material.
Thanks in advance.

Try www.elllo.org because you will find audio files with different accents (Canadian, Irish, American, Australian...) Select www.elllo.org in the search bar in the top right-hand corner and then type a keyword (sports, food, ...)

You can try this:

Online pronouncing dictionary - British English pronunciation



Online English dictionary with pronunciation - American English


Enter the word in the box under "Dictionary > Find", then click on the loudspeaker sign.

Online phonetics resources-link to many links


Here you will find a long list of resources and links to online demonstrations and illustrations of a variety of phonetic phenomena.

 I think the last one should be very useful for you!
