please call stella.

"Please call Stella. Ask her to bring these things with her from the store: Six spoons of fresh snow peas, five thick slabs of blue cheese, and maybe a snack for her brother Bob. We also need a small plastic snake and a big toy frog for the kids. She can scoop these things into three red bags, and we will go meet her Wednesday at the train station."
in the speech accent archive you can listen to different native language speakers read the wonderful above paragraph, which contains most of the consonants, vowels, and clusters of standard american english. it's weird now that i live in georgia to hear people speak with such pronounced southern accents, it really throws me off for a second or two. i guess i just got used to the souff philly one. anyway, i love how people from scandinavia pronounce "these things" and "brother bob". i think that i would really like to hear jermu read it!
