    thank you for those links, Tdol, i've been digging thru them but i need something different, namely transcriptions of differences between english regional accents.
    something, like here:
    Lancashire dialect and accent - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    but concerning only phonetics and about more than one accent,
    like a phonetic comparison.
    can you help me?
    thanx in advance.

    Why not compare that to Yorkshire: Yorkshire Folk Talk - pronunciation.

    because i do not need Yorkshire accent
    what i need it either of these:
    staffordshire
    dudley
    southampton
    littlehampton

    OR

    i posted it on "analysing language" but maybe you will be able to help me.
    as in my country [and not only] IPA is the only one phonetic alphabet i can use, i need someone [best would be british] to help me figure this one out:


    definite article occasionally ® [?]; definite article + V ® [D] (the other [DUD@] girl); H-dropping; Yorkshire assimilation (I were too forward for them [fQ:w@t fQr/ @m])

    PRICE [a: ~ a:I > A:]; MOUTH [a: ~ aU]; GOAT [OU]; START [a: > A:]; STRUT [u]; BATH [a]

    <-ook> ® [u:k]; <gl-> ® [dl]; <-ng#> ® [Ng]

    note also our [aU@], cloths [klQDz], because [bIkQs], always [Q:lw@z], one [wQn] and once [wUns], schoolmaster [sk}:lma.st@], couldn’t [kUdn@], don’t [dUn@ ~ do:nt], half [a:f], teemed [tEmd], didn’t [dIn@], what’n-you-may-call-it [wQtnIkQt]


    i need to rewrite these rules using International Phonetic Alphabet?
    cuold you possibly help me with that?
    thank you in advance
