posh or common?
Which one are you? I'd say posh but too scared to admit it!

I used to get the piss taken out of my voice a lot, because I apparently spoke with a plum in my mouth, so I'd say common. Cos I deliberately altered my voice so they'd accept me, innit .

It seems to have been a while since there was a thread about class here. There was a flurry of them about a fortnight ago for some reason.

i am quiet common when i talk to my friends but when i meet a stranger or when i talk to teachers etc, i will change to completely different person. i never intent to do that, weird how i can change myself quikly.

i seem to change my accent when i talk to different people. esp when i speak to customers on the telephone

I live in Bolton so I'm probably common by association, although I have a varied vocabulary and know proper speak but I don't speak properly because no one else around me does, but I write formally and as is expected. Let's not quarrel over semantics and labels...

(Original post by Whats_The_411?)
My background illistrates that i'm common more so than posh. I know where i've come from and i'm just trying to better myself through education so that i wont remain so. I'm not saying i'm ashamed or anything as i'm proud of where I have come from and what i've seen. It's made me a more rounded person.

I'm just trying to turn a negative into a positive picture.
Common / posh doesn't necessarily reflect a value judgement - it's simply descriptive. Saying that education is "bettering" yourself does rather imply that you think "common" is worse than "posh".

I guess i should read what i write first. Education has opened my eyes to issues surrounding social policy and the rights of people which i am interested in. As a result i am more motivated to make changes to society so that people irrespective of class have equal access to recieve equal service. When i say bettering i simply reflect it to these lines. I know what i said seemed to suggest otherwise but im not saying that being common is worse than being posh. I will never say that.

Ah, well we were taught about Govan in geography, because it was so rough lol.

And I come from High Wycombe, serious narb, almost as rough as Glasgow

To southerners I probably sound common what do you think?

*This is a high quality recording*
I've your voice before! I downloaded a song off kazaa a while ago and it had this annoying 'Manc' saying the exact same phrase as is on your clip over and over on top of the song, :confused:

I think i was Stairway to Heaven but i'm no sure.

Maybe i only think i'm posh because i'm comparing myself to people from somerset, elsewhere in England people have said the opposite about me...

I'd say common but I go to a private school so I'm stereotyped as a snob - but I'm not!
