Woss all iss "Victoria Park" stuff? You rreelly local or wha'?

I alliz tort ih wuz:-

"'Aaark, 'aaark de laaark
In Caaardiff Aaarms Paaark"

sose we cud learn people 'ow to talk Caaardiff proper, like.

Ahem, note to the bemused non-local reader, Cardiff (and Barry) people have a rather distinctive way of enunciation when it comes to words containing the letter "a". Think of the way that Liverpudlians say "Arrite, arrite, carm down", then add a sort of Welsh accent and then morph it for a hundred years or so . . . and you still won't be getting it quite right.
