Dan managed the content while Richard managed the programming behind the web site. By creating convenience for Mac bargain hunters, the site became an instant hit. dealmac dropped the hyphen in 1998. In 1999, was born to list deals on PC hardware and software, DVD movies, TVs, and anything else that our core audience (techie geeks) would want. While we’ve since added more sites — her.dealnews, dealcoupon, dealram, dealcam, and dealink — we’ve stayed true to our original mission: listing only the best offers from reputable merchants.

The Speech Accent Archive

The speech accent archive is established to uniformly exhibit a large set of speech accents from a variety of language backgrounds. Native and non-native speakers of English all read the same English paragraph and are carefully recorded.1 The archive is constructed as a teaching tool and as a research tool. It is meant to be used by linguists as well as other people who simply wish to listen to and compare the accents of different English speakers.

This website allows users to compare the demographic and linguistic backgrounds of the speakers in order to determine which variables are key predictors of each accent. The speech accent archive demonstrates that accents are systematic rather than merely mistaken speech.

NPR weekend edition interviewed Lynn Neary about his Speech Accent Archive. To listen click here NPR
