Lynnequist at separated by a common language is looking for “examples of dialogue, first-person narration or anything, really, in which the dialectal features of the character are not right. Really what I want are examples of US authors getting UK dialects wrong or UK authors getting US dialects wrong...but things from other anglophone countries might be helpful too.”

I'm sure my Flist can come up with some examples: http://separatedbyacommonlanguage.blogspot.com/2011/05/dialect-fail-in-books-your-help.html

NB. She is looking for examples from books, not television or other media.
