In East Anglia they do not just have books of dialect words but spell many places in a way designed to fool anybody not from the area.

In Cornwall and Wales they even have a different language.

Reminds me of the time someone I used to know was holidaying in North Wales. 2 women in the shop talking Welsh were being derogatory about holidaymakers from England. My friend and the shopkeeper exchanged knowing looks but nothing was said. Only when the three Welsh people were on their own did he say that "The Englishman" had spent part of his childhood in Wales and spoke the language fluently.

Ah, then in Ireland we ignore anything past 1066 and call England "sasana" (saxon), so an English person is a "sasanach" (cue Braveheart music!) BUT their language is "béarla" - which can mean "gabble" but is derived from "sacs-bhéarla" or saxon talk. So ye're all saxons, so ye are!! :mrgreen:

For standard Hiberno-english speech (albeit from a gobshite jackeen) this video is a good example (if you ignore the ingratiating eejit sucking up to the yanks...) listen past the first few seconds and it's pure midlands. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QJFayFOASMg

The phrase I miss the most from the North East is that endearing term "Pet", such as: There you go Pet or Are you alright Pet?

What about your regional terminology?

I remember making an effort to visit a club in my local town when it was bad times for me and I was feeling very alone. I was welcomed at the door by an elderly gentleman who put an arm round my shoulders and said "Hello love, pleased to see you, come on in". Just what I needed, but unlikely to happen now.

Being addressed as love or the equivalent automatically dropped barriers if you chose to go with it and I miss it!

Sexist and demeaning behaviour these days according to the chattering classes so nobody would dare do it today. In the same way as men are afraid to smile or say hello to a child as they walk past (and do not intend to stop walkin) these days. So much has been lost and people are becoming more and more insulated. No wonder the young as well as the elderly tallk about being lonely.
