    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.

    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!

    A woman: a woman or whim-en for plural...

    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.

    a cob, or occasionally a bap, but crusty ones are rolls

    renneth and bliddeth is what most people say here but yeah for suthull.

    if people do say it "properly" then rainworth is usually said like rain not ran.
