Subject: RE: BS: regional uk slang
My (very) Norfolk neighbour often tells me I'm 'roit lah-de-dah'. I don't think I am (and I don't use any of those words in your interesting list!) But she says my accent is 'loik wun o' they paaarsh Lunnon cooves'.
I think there are many aspects to how one is 'judged' :-
accent, vocabulary, social status and profession, origin (where born, where brought up)
I find all this diversity absolutely fascinating. Wouldn't it be horribly dreary if we all spoke in exactly the same way?
