What dialect of English is "yur, thees aint never bin no wur, ast?">>
There seems to be an inordinate amount of interest in this. Is it quiet out
there at the moment?
So I reply,
Why zur, `tis Witshire. Like what proper Englishmen do speek" Acker Bilk
talks like that. He is from Somerset actually but only just across the
. I also add these other gems.
`Ox un over yer then, ut?"
This is a call made by a football (soccer) player who wishes a team member
to pass the ball to him.
Literally. `Kick the ball to me then, if you please`
Thee castn`t see as good thee cust, cast?`
Translation. `You cannot see as well as you once could, can you?`
Unfortunately there are few left now who understand the old dialect `Cus
they all bin and got posh see, enum?
