    I have news for y'all. None of you sound the same. I can tell a Brummie from a Londoner from a Geordie and I don't even live there. And you wild Toms over in Northen Ireland, fugeddaboutit. Finally, you thick-headed Wilts...I've heard you talk (right Owen), you need to take the marbles out your mouth when you speak. :lol:

    So which one is it? Which dialect is "Queen's" English?

    Or is it Fraffly, that I know none of you speak? :p

    You live down there among them, Bobby. Are you proficient with the Yat dialect?


    The Yats and their New Orleans dialect is hard to figure out sometimes, but I can understand them from working down there a good bit in my time. I can't speak it though, I figure that you have to be born and raised there to do that. If I tried to they'd make me for a Baton Rougeon right off. They sort of sound like yankees at first when they go to talking.

    I have an uncle (by marriage) who speaks Yat. He sounds like he is from Brooklyn, NY.

    Is that Gulf States or out Mexico way?

    You break my heart with those words.

    The red area, although we eye those states around Chesapeake Bay and West-by-God-Virginia with great suspicion:

    The other area you mentioned is called the Southwest.

    I got responses, but I never got an answer. If I want to speak the language of the British Sovereign, who's lead should I follow?

    So, can I safely assume that a large portion of British subjects do not speak the language in the correct manner?

    Whey man! Just taak like a Geordie then naebody'll understand and yuh can say what yuh like.
    Some examples:
    "What fettle?" = How are you?
    "Them's bonny galluses yuv gor on." = That's a fine pair of braces (suspenders) you are wearing.
    "Giv ower man!" = Please don't do/say that.

    Pete:D

    P.S. Reminds me of the Aussie who was reprimanded for his speech by a 'well-spoken' Englishman.
    "Don't you know the Queen's English?" asked the Englishman.
    "I would think she is with a ripe Pommie accent like she's got." Was the reply.
