I find Australian accent very similar to this heard in Manchester. Am I right? If I am not, which English accent could fit in?
Yes that is what I'm talking about:
mate pronounced like ['mait].
The First Fleeters came mainly from around east London, but that was over 200 years ago.
If there is any similarity to the accent of Manchester, that would be a complete coincidence since there is no special historical connection.
