Ah, interesting; I've always assumed that the word {Sar} meant "variety" in the sense of "diversity", rather than "variant". Now I'll have to rethink my use of the phrase {belmoH Sar}. Perhaps {belmoH SartaHghach.} would be preferable?

TKD glosses {QIch} as "speech (vocal sounds)." The notation "(vocal sounds)" is intended to denote that "speech" here means the phenomenon of speech as opposed to an address or oration - that's {SoQ}. So {QIch} doesn't refer to individual speech sounds or speech sounds collectively. An individual speech sound is {QIch wab} and speech sounds collectively are {QIch wabmey}.

"Pronunciation" could be {QIch wab Ho'DoS}, more literally (but awkwardly) "speech-sound manner, speech-sound technique."

A bit more on languages:

--- begin quote ---
An "accent" might be {QIch wab Ho'DoS Sar} "pronunciation variety."  A "regional accent" would then be {Sep QIch wab Ho'DoS} or {Sep QIch wab Sar} or {Sep QIch wab Ho'DoS Sar}.

("Dialect," by the way, would be {Hol Sar}; "regional dialect" is {Sep Hol Sar}.)
