There are many, many resources here, but it sounds like you need a
place to start. I would recommend J. C. Wells' Accents of English 3:
Beyond the British Isles (Cambridge Univ. Press, 1982), where several
varieties of North American English and Australian English are
treated very competently (and with the same notational system, a
small but important detail for people who want a general intro).
