The Voices recordings are a survey of regional English around the UK, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man. The interviewees talk about accent and dialect, words they use, and their attitudes to language. Most of the conversations are in English, but examples of Welsh, Scots Gaelic, Irish, Ulster Scots, Manx French, and Guernsey French are also included. The interviews were conducted by BBC radio staff.
