It’s for a level English Lang so don’t worry 🤣

But for anyone who know about linguistics....
-boaf=both
-werry=very
-nuffink=nothing
-froo=through
They’re all non standard pronunciations but I just wanted to give extra info if it’s helpful. I’m really stuck on deciding if they all display th-fronting

Werry instead of very isn’t th-fronting. There’s no th in the initial word. The rest are.

Th-fronting basically is people using v or f instead of a th sound when pronouncing words.

One of the most common would be saying bruvver instead of brother.
Or “I’m going out wiv my mates” instead of with

So technically none of the original list Are actually words

Thank you so much! I wasn’t sure if the addition of a in boaf would matter, as f replaced the th. if letters are added does it still count as th-fronting?

Sounds are different from letters (if we are talking about speech vs. written words). 'oa' is a digraph (two letter group) for the 'oh' sound, so would make no difference when spoken or written.
