    I love the black country dialect!
    it's a very lazy dialect to say the least lmao, it can be very hard to understand unless people are fairly local. One problem is that I am hopefully going to be a teacher so I really need to concentrate when I'm speaking in interviews and at school experience so that what I'm saying is actually understandable.

    I find it funny how people from different places have different ways of pronouncing 'I', I know that here we pronounce it as 'o' in lower case. 'o doe no' = idk lmAo

    The black country dialect is actually the closest to Old English so congratulations on speaking 'properly'

    The phrase I love is you'm (pronounced yowm) instead of you are

    Thank you Yeah, I don't always pronounce it as yowm/yarm I usually pronounce it as yome; similarly I pronounce he is as iz, she is as shiz, they are as just them i.e. them gooin on oliday, we are as wim, I am as om.

    Also what I like is we say yarn instead of yours and marn for mine.

    Brum, geordie, scouse, manc, yorkshire, lancashire, horrible somerset pirate accents are terrible and people with these accents should be forced to adopt a different accent.



    Also Portuguese/brazillian, russian, and greek languages sound horrible.

    One half of mine alike! I must say though my perception may be tainted by the absolute cows of Nigerians that I've met in the past. The one's I've met in university though (literally... one) have been lovely.
    They are lovely people haha. Obviously there will be cows! (Nearly all the time) but deep down, there's love

    Maybe it's because I'm a Southerner, but a fair few accents in the North of England aren't pleasant on the ear. Geordie accents are sort of an exception because they can be quite comical to me.
