Liverpudlian has changed actually,nowadays it breaks all sound records for being so high pitched,whereas in the 60s it was quite deepMancunian Jason Manford on Liverpool
I am Mancunian..Thank you Teggy!!(Still North West England next to Liverpool),and i don't realise HOW Manc i sound until i hear it back on a sound recorder or whatever
Do you remember Frasier?Daphne was supposed to be from Manchester,but to be honest it was more a Lancashire accent than actual Manchester
Canada as well. There is the East Coast accent, the Newfoundland accent, Quebec French speaking, There is a slight difference in the Western provinces.(I think they put it on to sound like Cowboys)
But coming from England(born in London) even in the city of London there are different accents. Cockney being one. But yeah, I've often pondered that and how it comes to be.
This is a special Feature on the Dr Strangelove DVD which has Peter Sellers doing various London Accents as well as a few morehttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CJH-4BNsVlc
as we are on the topic,i know compared to the U.S,Britain is quite small but it is still a large place to us
I had an XBL friend ask me if I knew a guy who's gamertag was W1nston Church1ll on his friends list just because he was from Britain...
.. there are still 60 million of us!!
Also,its not just accents that are still different,but words have different meanings as well,this is just Manchester...you don't want to get started on Cockney Rhyming Slang
Some of Manchester's most notable words, phrases and sayings include 'having a buzz', meaning to have a good time, 'scran' (food - also found in Liverpool and Glasgow ), 'gaff' (residence, house or flat), 'sorted' (O.K.), 'scrote' (low-life), 'safe' (on good terms), 'muppet' (ignorant), 'wool' (from 'woolyback' - a derogatory term for Mancunians) and 'the dibble' referring to the police. The term "madferit" (mad for it), meaning full of enthusiasm, was a phrase that embodied the Madchester era. Influences from Ireland include the pronunciation of the letter 'h' as 'haitch' and the plural of 'you' as 'youse'. However, this pronunciation of 'h' is now widespread, being used by approximately 24% of British people born since 1982
I love British accents, especially when they say 'Let's throw some shrimp on the barbie esse!'.
I still have no idea why British and Aussie accents get mixed up,its like that woman out of Revolution was supposed to be British,but she was blatantly Australian
