Though England has a small area, it's a country with many English accents. One of the most famous is the Manchester accent. It has a number of distinct features. Here are a few:
-in words such as city, happy and lucky, the word final y is pronounced as in big
-the words look and luck rhyme (this is because the u of but, must and up has the sound of the u in put)
-words such as castle, dance and fast have the vowel of man
-the diphthong in words such as line, side and time is more advanced than in the London accent
-the vowel of cap, hat, and land tends to be more retracted than in the London accent.
