    Default English dialects and accents project

    Greeting from Latvia!
    I'm doing my school project about English accents and I have to do it until February (I always put my works on a back burner so I have no time left), so there's a thing I would like to ask for. Couldn't some of you having different kinds of accents (from native English to German etc.) please, please read some lines into microphone? I'd very appreciate your help!
    Here they are:
    Aunt with a salmon in hands is walking on roof of a house in Alabama that's washed with oil. Both of her legs slide while she's wearing pajamas. And now that she's fallen again in the water she's searching for a lawyer. A lawyer, that's eating caramel while walking on fire.
    Thank you!

    Do you want different native speaker accents and do you want people to tell you what they think their accent is?

    And I presume the grammatical errors are insignificant as presumably you're thinking about phonemes.
