I could not find a reference to the website below on this forum, so I thought I would offer it as an item of general interest.
Among other entries are audios of people around the world reading a designed English paragraph. I found it very interesting, and it was good to have phonetic inventory charts of the various languages.
Though I am a native English speaker, I actually had to concentrate a little to keep up with the person from Boston. That is because I am from the S-L-O-W speaking Midwest, though we might be incrementally faster than people from Alabama or Tennessee.
A discussion of the peculiarities of languages and the differences between them.
