You really have to be joking. Nobody can be this ignorant.

Glaswegian sounds nothing like the Edinburgh accent, or indeed, like anything else and Geordie is as similar to spouse as it to Chinese. There are as many different accents in England as there are regions, if not more. Same goes for the other countries that make up the UK.

sarcasm doesnt translate well over text

OMG!! Ignorant much ?

Ireland has a different accent in almost every County, and they are all audibly different.

The

Kerry,
Dublin,
Cork,
Limerick,
Cavan,
Galway,
Monaghan,
Meath,

accents to name just a few are all very different indeed, and there is at least another half dozen more including the state broadcaster RTE who has its own spin on an accent for its news reporters.

And even then - each county has variations.

A Kerry accent has discernible differences between West Kerry, South Kerry, North Kerry, and main two towns Tralee & Killarney. So thats 5 possibly more discernible accents just in one county with a populace of 100,000 people.

Then there is the Gaelic accents for Irish speaking folk too, and there are big differences in accent based on different Gaeilge speaking regions.


To sum up in a populace of 4 million (and excluding Northern Ireland) there is probably easily between 30-50 accents.




As for the UK just going off the top of my head...

South Yorkshire
Doncaster (noticeably different to Sheffield also in South Yorkshire)
Midlands (Birmingham)
Manchester
Liverpool
Durham & Newcastle
Somerset
Norfolk
Devon
Cornish
London North, South, East & West alongside Cockney
Public educated accent
Sussex
Essex
Leicester
Leeds / Bradford
North Yorkshire (Harrogate etc)
Hull / Humberside

And so many more with variations in those counties based on towns and cities too.



Accents are not like Lord of the Rings where there is 1 accent to rule them all....

At least you didn't go as far as to say that in Europe they mostly speak European.
