The Speech Accent Archive is a project by George Mason University linguistics professor Steven H. Weinberger. It records people from different parts of the world reading this paragraph in the English language:
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.
