Emphasis on dialect (6)


I believe the answer is:


This clue is a double definition.

'emphasis' is the first definition.

'dialect' is the second definition.

'on' is the link.

(Other definitions for accent that I've seen before include "Mark over a vowel, perhaps" , "Emphasis on syllabus or word" , "Speech inflection" , "Regional speech characteristic" , "Emphasis on syllable or local pronunciation" .)

I've seen this clue in The Daily Express and The Mirror.
