I came across this video from Rocketboom the other day- it’s a pretty cool breakdown of the typical ‘New York accent’ as a voice coach walks an Aussie from a think ‘Down Under’ accent to a passable old-school NY tone.  I’ve always thought regional dialects are really interesting, and living in a city with a pretty wide variety from borough to borough makes for some interesting translation issues sometimes.
