Pete_Standing CD to Preserve Essex Dialect (44) RE: CD to Preserve Essex Dialect 18 May 09


I was raised in Southend. I can rememeber that people who had come from those parts for generations or from the countryside just outside Southend, had quite a different accent, something more akin to that of Suffolk or Norfolk. The kind of London sounding accent that people associate with Essex I suspect is a result of the migration of people from London settling after WWII, the inevitable creep of the suburbs swallowing up parts of west Essex and the influence of the modern media, all things that are having an effect in other parts of the country too.
