Has your accent changed after starting uni?


    (Original post by Dr. Bassman)
    So no west country at all?

    p.s. please don't ruin my hopes and dreams.
    Even living with two girls from the wilds of somerset for three years didn't give me a west country twang.

    ...and by that I mean, of course, I'm heavily west country and you'll definitely pick it up

    Mine is largely the same, I tend to say 'duck' and imitate the Stoke accent occasionally. I've noticed that on some words I sound a bit Stokie, I imagine that'll change when I move away from uni after I graduate. My boyfriend is a Stokie so I can imitate it quite well apparently!

    I have a slight Brummie accent, I lived in Dudley for 6 years, moved to London for another 6 and back up to Birmingham when I was 12 so I'm all over the shop with my accent sometimes
