Inspired by the German dialects thread I was wondering whether anyone would be interested to actually write in British dialects?

The United Kingdom has so many different local dialects, some are easier to understand than others and most of them even have some interesting words that people from other parts of the island(s) would probably not understand.

Howay, lads 'n' lasses, howset like? Do yous want to givet a try and write in your local dialects?

Well ... I do understand some UK dialects - but I would not dare to imitate them. :oops: Not in writing, that is. :-D

But perhaps Andy could? :)

He hails from bonnie Aberdeenshire, if I am not totally mistaken. :)

I like this bit of Northern dialect: :love4

Zitat:
There's a famous seaside place called Blackpool,
That's noted for fresh air and fun,
And Mr and Mrs Ramsbottom
Went there with young Albert, their son.

A grand little lad was young Albert,
All dressed in his best; quite a swell
With a stick with an 'orse's 'ead 'andle,
The finest that Woolworth could sell.

They didn't think much to the Ocean:
The waves, they was fiddlin' and small,
There was no wrecks and nobody drownded,
Fact, nothing to laugh at at all.

So, seeking for further amusement,
They paid and went into the Zoo,
Where they'd Lions and Tigers and Camels,
And old ale and sandwiches too.

There were one great big Lion called Wallace;
His nose were all covered with scars -
He lay in a somnolent posture,
With the side of his face on the bars.

Now Albert had heard about Lions,
How they was ferocious and wild -
To see Wallace lying so peaceful,
Well, it didn't seem right to the child.

So straightway the brave little feller,
Not showing a morsel of fear,
Took his stick with its 'orse's 'ead 'andle
And pushed it in Wallace's ear.

You could see that the Lion didn't like it,
For giving a kind of a roll,
He pulled Albert inside the cage with 'im,
And swallowed the little lad 'ole.

Then Pa, who had seen the occurrence,
And didn't know what to do next,
Said 'Mother! Yon Lion's 'et Albert',
And Mother said 'Ee, I am vexed!'

Then Mr and Mrs Ramsbottom -
Quite rightly, when all's said and done, -
Complained to the Animal Keeper
That the Lion had eaten their son.

The keeper was quite nice about it;
He said 'What a nasty mishap.
Are you sure that it's your boy he's eaten?'
Pa said 'Am I sure? There's his cap!'

The manager had to be sent for,
He came and said 'What's to do?'
Pa said 'Yon Lion's 'et Albert,
And 'im in his Sunday clothes, too.'

Then Mother said, 'Right's right, young feller,
I think it's a shame and a sin
For a lion to go and eat Albert,
And after we've paid to come in.'

The manager wanted no trouble,
He took out his purse right away,
Saying 'How much to settle the matter?'
And Pa said 'What do you usually pay?'

But Mother had turned a bit awkward
When she thought where her Albert had gone.
She said 'No! someone's got to be summonsed'-
So that was decided upon.

Then off they went to the P'lice Station,
In front of the Magistrate chap;
They told 'im what happened to Albert,
And proved it by showing his cap.

The Magistrate gave his opinion
That no one was really to blame,
And he said that he hoped the Ramsbottoms
Would have further sons to their name.

At that Mother got proper blazing,
'And thank you, sir, kindly,' said she.
'What, waste all our lives raising children
To feed ruddy Lions? Not me!'

Just a quick "Hello" from Andy.

Possible alternatives for an Aberdeenshire man would be:-

"Fit like?" (How are you?)
You would usually reply "Fair tae middlin."

or

"Foos yer doos?" (How are your pigeons? - I,m serious!)
You would usually reply "Pikkin awa." (Pecking away)

Weel, at'll hae tae dee the noo!

Hi Andy! :) Nice to meet you!

I've never been to Aberdeen like but wud luv to go one fine day. I think the Northern accents are related, what do yous think? I find it quite easy to understand the Northern dialects (well apart from proper Glaswegian mind!) but I divn't understand the Southernes to save me life :( . Especially them Cockney speakers.. probably just summit you have ta get used to.

Aye cos Geordie is more related te Scottish than te any other English dialect. It is actually considered an individual language variety.

I think you're right about this, but can you cope with a poem in Scots Doric?

Nae the Same

I spoke til a freen at the shore theday,
Man, he wis unco-like and grey.
Dytin aboot like a half-shut knife
An vooin oot at the ills o' life.
Things is nae the same , says he,
Nae the same as they eesed t' be.

Girnin sair at the wintry blast,
Minin on Paradise lang, lang past-
Saat fish dryin on sunny braes,
The bleachin greens an the spotless claes.
The wither's nae the same says he,
Nae near sae fine as it eesed tae be.

Luk at the fearsome price o' coal,
It's mair than the pension's fit tae thole.
An, Lord, a near gaed throwe the reef,
Fin a heard the price o' a pun o' beef.
Things is nae the same , says he,
Nae sae chaip as they eesed tae be.

An fit div ye get fae the doctor chiels?
A line for a pucklie o' fancy peels.
Yalla eens if ye canna sleep,
Pink if yer sark tail cracks like a wheep.
Meydicine's nae the same, says he,
A mixtier's a thing that ye nivver see.

He rantit on til mi heid was sair,
I steyed til a could thole nae mair.
Ye're awaa? says he. A'm awaa! says I,
But a'll tell ye this in the passin by-
Wi a huntle mair ye're just like me,
Nae sae yung as ye eesed t' be.

Let the gentleman continue:

Wee, sleeket, cowran, tim'rous beastie,
O, what panic's in thy breastie!
Thou need na start awa sae hasty,
Wi' bickering brattle!
I wad be laith to rin an' chase thee,
Wi' murd'ring pattle!


:wiwi

Now all you UK experts, I would love to know from where various speakers are that I see on the tele, for example Jonathan Ross. He is from London, so I assume he speaks a sort of Cockney, doesn't he?

Do all Northern dialects say 'yous'?
Does anybody say 'y'all'?

By the way, I have a tape with the Yorkshire dialect and love it, but on tv, I only understand the Queen's English and similar upperclass or 'cleaned-up' accents.

Yes, Waldbaum. :cool:

I recently heard that they say 'yous' in Pittsburgh. I didn't know it came from Geordie, whatever Geordie may be. Where is it spoken, all over the north including Scotland? Why is it called Geordie?

So, does Jonathan Ross speak Cockney?
