'fink' instead of think etc. ... general south east area
no fink is up in the north west too..
"la/r" to mean.. a word you put in anywhere in a sentence to annoy people that can speak properly - from Liverpool.
D's in stead of th. again to annoy people. eg "dey do do dont de do" means "they though, dont they though." again liverpool.
this probably won't help you at all, but oh well:
in canada, we say route as "root"
in america they say it as "rowt"
Bockle!!! It's when someone says 'Bo'l e.g. without pronouncing a T.
Toilet - Netty
Get lost - Hadaway
I'm not sure - Ah divint knaa leyk
I'm going down the lane - Ah'm gannin doon the lonnen
Instead of saying 'me' we sometimes say 'us.' 'Like Give us (usually pronounced uz/iz) a lift.'
Yes = Aye
No (affirmative reply) = Na
No (no way, no chance) = Nee
No - (less affirmative) = Nar
Nice - Canny
Quite (a lot) - Canny
Careful - Canny
Be careful/go carefully/take care = Gan canny
lol really? damn im goin to newc uni... thats gona get confusing
In somerset ppl put "to" on the end of some sentences... eg, where are you going to?
Also, things are called "he" or "they"... eg, can you pass me they buckets? where's he (ie, the bucket) to?
I know loads...here's one though:
It's all gone Pete Tong means 'it's all gone pear-shaped'.
For Black Country and Brummie, bus = buzz
Maybe this is a Yorkshire thing.
When further down south people dont get me when I say owt (anything) or nowt (nothing). Seems to draw some confused looks.
Oh just replace all Y's with 'Eh' and miss out the occaisonal letter and you'll have my local dialect... I hate it, I try to have an as neutral accent as possible (end up sounding like a newsreader)
In the West Midlands, in the Black Country:
"ar" instead of yes and "Ow bist?" instead of How are you?
