Type something in your local accent….
….If you have one. 🙂
i.e. Not good-old-STW propper English, write it like you’d say it at home. I love accents, me.
I’ll go first, in finest North Notts slang ->
Ooo worra wi? Worra wi mi mam or worra wi mi sen?
Or possibly –
Gi-orr scrattin and gerron wi it!

Fairly sure I dont have an accent in the sense of using different/altered words in a sentence. I have a slight northern sound to my voice and I say grass, not grarse, but other than that there are very few people who can identify where I’m from accurately, which is funny considering I was brought up right between Liverpool, Manchester, Wigan and St Helens – all of which have fairly heavy accents.Posted 8 years ago

“RudeBoy inaccurate post Shocker”
Your post made me chuckle RB but London “tarn” stopped sounding like that last century. No more “yoo sarf Lundun slaaaaaaag”, nowadays its more fake-Jamaican, also known as Jafaican
“scooz me uv yooo got a fug pleez, check me dem shooz before I jook y’up yu dyum foool” “Wut ya chuttin aboot”?

Thing is, there are so many different cultural groups, there is no longer a homogeneous ‘accent’ left, in London. The dialect I grew up with is much closer to my outrageous use of Cockney stereotypes, than what the yute dem chat. Although I did grow up around West Indian folk, so picked up a few colloquialisms along the way.
Anyway, I ain’t got time fi chat shit wid you, bro, cos you is well butters, innit, seen? Ya get me? Now step from me, ‘fore I f*ck you up big style.Posted 8 years agohot_fiatSubscriber
Plagarised from the Ashington Dictionary:
berk n. Foolish person, idiot.
Ash: Reading material.
“Let’s do this by the berk, officer.”
curled n. Bent or twisted.
Ash: Low temperature; chilled.
“This beer’s as curled as a whippet’s nose.”
creche n. Nursery.
Ash: Car accident.
“Me bairn broke her leg in a creche.”
Of course, being a makem originally, I have a far posher regional dialect.Posted 8 years ago
