What do the people of Midkemia sound like when they speak

From: Raymond E. Feist

I have a rough idea, but it's not exact. The Kingdom Court in Rillanon sounds very British in my ear, as does the Prince's court in Krondor, though far less pronounced (no pun). Alistair Cook's "mid-Atlantic" accent is how I think of court people in Krondor.

The west, as a whole, sounds either Australian or American depending on where you are. Bas-Tyra are sounding French. Kesh has a middle-eastern accent, along the lines of Iran (Persian) and the Jal-Pur are Arabic. Darkmoor has a Germanic lilt.
