Q:Hello, I've been browsing your previously answered questions regarding dialogue in search for advice pertaining to how to write dialogue that shows accents in speech patterns, but I haven't found much. Do you have more advice or resources on how to write accents? I'm particularly interested in how to write a British or Welsh accent, but any advice on writing accents would be much appreciated! Thank you in advance!
Well, British accents don’t exist first of all, so that’s my first piece of advice to you.
Other than that, I would highly recommend looking at accent challenges on YouTube to hear a variety of English and Welsh accents. I Google searched ‘tumblr accent challenge welsh’ and a whole bunch of videos popped up. You could do the same for the English part. Hearing them for yourself is the best course of action to take, imo.
Otherwise, links because there is already a lot out there on accents and I don’t think I could make any useful contribution to it all.

I hope some of this helps…! Best of luck.
I’m sorry, but you guys wrote “British accents don’t exist.” It’s supposed to be a singular British accent does not exist. Normally I would not make a fuss about this, but there is a very annoying myth that you can speak in a way that is “accentless” and it is very easy to misread this. Until I clicked through to the article you actually linked I was scratching my head in a very, “Oh not this rubbish from someone that doesn’t have any voice training again.” manner.
Look, I’m sorry if my typo offended you, but… really?
I do this for free and in my own time and I’m a bog-standard human; although I really do try to keep my grammar, spelling and punctuation on point, I’m not perfect and I will make mistakes from time-to-time.
All I can really do at this stage is edit the post, but that’s not gonna change what has already been reblogged… that’ll be tomorrow now too because I need to sleep. I have to fit this in around my full-time, awkward-hours job, so I’m not always in top condition when I come to answer questions for you guys. Please understand… and I’m sorry once again for your annoyance…
I’m not offended or annoyed at all?
Typos happen. I know that better than anyone. Heck, I think it’s idiotic to get stuck up on types. I was trying to as politely as possible point this one out because it critically changes the meaning of the sentence to a common misunderstanding. No offensive was taken or meant. What annoyance existed disappeared when I realized it was a typo.
