Well if it's any consolation, the last time I spoke to you you sounded geordie to me!
No my friend Rob actually pronounces Durham 'Darham'!
And yet if you're a proper Durham local, it should be 'Derram' should it not.

Yeah I know what you mean, it's sort of a posh essex area accent, after the holidays I always notice my housemates accents are stronger

Ohhhh I get what you're saying
And I'll have you people know I'm not bloody posh! I'm Irish, and people are always telling me I pronounce things like a northerner:confused:
It's bath not barth!!!!!:mad:
EDIT: just realised that I'm spending summer working behind a bar in Dublin, so my accent will be re-irishified!

It's really bad though, cos my family in Ireland say I have a really posh English accent Then again, my friends tell me I have an average (slightly Irish) accent, so I'm hoping it'll be all Irish again after Summer
Although apparently I say certain things in a very Irish accent, like Ireland, bugger, potatoes (hmm, I do actually use those words alot).:confused:

Potatoes and bugger are both very useful words.
Not so sure about Ireland though :p:

Turty-tree!
Also do you say "whenever" instead of "when" a lot? My friend, she says things like, "whenever I was trying to do my essay I couldn't because my housemate was making too much noise".

Not sure, probably. i also say 'I'm after having done something' alot, which is kinda weird. And I say sure far too much:rolleyes:
I've got to stop being stereotypically Irish

Haha, do you say "so it is" after every phrase? My friends mum is Irish and she says, "I'm just going down the street so it is" and "You're looking well so you are". Hahahahahaha.

Not so it is, but I have a feeling that I'm guilty of the second one
And spending the summer months in Dublin really isn't going to help much:rolleyes:
