having lived in a few places with distinctly different accents my pronunciation sometimes varies but here goes.

This time we're doing slang as well as pronunciations!

Economics: Economics
Privacy: privacy (i as in in)
Dancing: dan sing
Make: mayke (bit of a lancashire twang to that one)
Often: Why do people say offen? I thought it wasn't a word? of-ten
Doncaster: don-c-ass-ter
Frances: frahnces
Rawtenstall: Rotten-stall when I'm in lancashire, Raw-ten-staall other times

T' slang section: Ie. iff you say "init" instead of isn't it... or if instead you say backie for taking a ride on someones bike.
Isn't: isn't
Wouldn't: wouldn't
Couldn't: couldn't
Shouldn't: shouldn't
Wasn't: wasn't
Something: somethin
Truenting: truenting / skiving
I: I
Have: have
I am: I amm
Taking a ride on a bike with someone else on it (is that clear?): choggy
The shop: the shop
A woman: a woman
A man: a man
Passage way between houses: ginnel or snicket

Where your from: all over - went to three different junior schools in 3 year

Any any more word suggestions welcome!

another place name or two Mytholmroyd and Lomeshay.
Magdelen - as in the bridge in Oxford.
Secretary.

and what do you call the small round bread, often sold split in two buttered with a savory filling?

I've lived in a few places with very different accents so this could be interesting....... or I could just speak like where I come from now?!

This time we're doing slang as well as pronunciations!

Economics:E-coh-no-mix
Privacy:pri-va-cy (no emphasis on the 'I')
Dancing:dancing... no long aaaaaaaaa sound
Make: as its spelt[/COLOR]
Often: Why do people say offen? I thought it wasn't a word? ov-ten
Doncaster: again, no long aaa sound. just Don-cas-ter
Frances: France (like the country) the 'es'
Rawtenstall: Raw-ten-staaaaaaaaall. I dunno why I do this, but I'd probably pronounce that 'a' like a southener.

T' slang section: Ie. iff you say "init" instead of isn't it... or if instead you say backie for taking a ride on someones bike.
Isn't: 99% of the time i saw iznt, sometimes innit
Wouldn't:wudn't
Couldn't:cudn't
Shouldn't:shudn't
Wasn't:wasn't
Something:something, sometimes somefing (I hate doing that but a few of my mates do so it sometimes rubs off.... I mean, geez!! it's a TH, not anF!!)
Truenting:skiving
I:I
Have:av
I am:I'm
Taking a ride on a bike with someone else on it (is that clear?):no special word, just getting a ride on someones bike
The shop:the shops
A woman:a woman
A man:a man
Passage way between houses:guinnel (sp?)... thats a new word for me, I only just learnt it recently, I'd'v called it an alley before

Where your from:Northwest

Any any more word suggestions welcome!

I find it funny how we have different words for scallys (chavs whatever!) depending on where we're from. Down south don't they get called rude boys and townies too?? And moshers are grungers lol.... hmm... what else... can't think.

Its weird at school 'chav' used to mean someone who was younger than us, particularly those in yr7/8 which kinda makes sense as it comes from the romanian for child but now when I say chav I'm refering to chav-scums/neds/pikeys.

How would everyone say Brunswick? It's a road in my town, but all (actually, that's not fair, most) tourists and newcomers pronounce it wrong.

Not a trick as such, but you don't say the W. It's more like Brunz-ick. Lol, I've just realised my other post makes me sound really thick, and unable to use proper grammer....I can!

EDIT: grammar, not grammer, oops

Passage way between houses: alley (sp?) or alleyway, or even backalley.

One that I've noticed that I say differently to everyone where I live is 'nothing' I say it "no-thing" and everyone else seems to say "nu-thing"

I live in Telford, Shropshire, the land of farmers and rather a lot of Welsh people, 'cos it's on the border... Oh, but my parents are Wearsiders, so I've had influences from the northeast... it's an odd mix, really.
