Welsh English speech goes online

Hundreds of recordings of disappearing dialects of English spoken in Wales from the 1960s onwards are being made available for research.
Swansea University researchers taped the "folk-speech" of elderly villagers, and later urban youngsters, to compile the Survey of Anglo-Welsh Dialects.
Archive director Rob Penhallurick said: "In some parts of Wales, English has been spoken for nearly 1,000 years."
Around 500 recordings are available via the British Library's online catalogue. [click heading for more]
