But i would love to live in New York when im older coz my voice is real deep i find it very easy to do an american accent. But i dont talk posh, infact far from it, stoke is rough and thats how we talk.
Heres an old saying from near by where i live.

Of course we dont talk like that but..
we talk like this for example..
*Aup Duck, Cudda a Hva Pint Love*
My Northampton born cousin, always starts her letters "Ey oop, our Maurice", I'm sure she doesn't talk like that all the time, it's an ongoing family joke, she is a bundle of fun, in her 60's, my mother was born in Huntingdon, similar accent, they say "me dook", like in your Stoke really.

A broad speaking Geordie would probably say "gi'e the bairn some bullits" = "give the child some sweets"

I lived in stoke when I went to uni, and I think it's a great accent...

and I love the way that everyone is duck, (A-up dook).
and everyone will reffere to everyone as duck, flower, petal, shoog (as in sugar).

My cousins also live in Burton upon trent, and that has a simillar accent to you stokies.

one thing this thread has made me realise is that it's very hard to write things with an accent. I mean I'm so used to writting things in english and I assume just expecting them to be the same for everyone else.

(like that thing with the name watt (what) that was on here a little while back).

As for the northern accent beng a minority, I don't believe that is true, the UK has such a wide diversity of accents, that you can travel 25 miles and notice a different accent. In that aspect the wide variety of accents that a england have in opposition to the size of our population.

What is the correct English accent, the upper class 'toff's' accent, the cockney londoner, (a la Very atrociously bad Dick van dyke)??
Ha! How much I agree with that!

There are different accents everywhere, Manchester, Liverpool, Blackburn, evan different sides of Timperley! Haha! Scotland, Yorkshire..loads more.
