Phillips" Subject: Re: reply to Williams If you have access to VCR equipment, the _Story of English_ is an excellent source of dialect differences in World English. Of course there is a book and workbook (which is particularly helpful in outlining phonetic differences) to that series as well. J.C. Wells' _Accents of English_ is "too much reading," but it has accompanying tapes (if I remember correctly) that may be useful to you.
