    those hailing from the south.

    Accents, then, inform us first about the country a person is from. They may also tell us which part of a country the person lives in or has lived in, or they might reveal the perceived 'class' of that person. In England, there are many regional accents - the most obvious differences being between people who live or come from the north and those hailing from the south. It is usually the vowel sounds which vary the most.
    =====================================
    What does this "hail" mean? I don't get it.
