    How be on, Where be the dog.

    Well done me cocker.....You've discovered my whereabouts. No word here is allowed to end in a vowel sound. It's more of an 'all' than an 'ool' though. It's said to be how Bristol got its name, from Brigestowe (Brigstow, Brigestow etc.)

    I'd say variations The missus is Bristolian, born in Clifton, as are her parents and siblings, and they are all ool/alls. They say Asdal as well, hence I knew it was Bristol

    It's very annoying, what's more annoying is walking on after work and the following being said.

    How be on.

    What is it with the word "be"

    Hahaha. That's what I tell her! She's the only one from Clifton, the rest are from Fishponds/Filton, and ironically, shes the only really posh/snobby one!

    Must be something in the air

    Ahh, I get confused by the Somerset language/dialect most of the time when accents are really heavy. Was born in Johannesburg, a world away.

    "Have you got a minute...", "Wireless", "Printers", "Can you fix my home computer" seem to be popular ones

    My main pet hate is definitely 'like'. Even the brightest children use it every other word, and it makes them sound absolutely brainless. It is possible not to - my children were brought up to speak properly and I am sure they use 'like' with their friends, but not at home, or when talking to teachers or at work or whatever.
    Another one is 'disinterested' used where they mean 'uninterested'.

    and..'At this moment in time..' - do you mean 'Now'?

    Then there is 'who' and 'whom' but frankly incorrect usage of that is almost universal now.

    In Dorset they say 'Where's that to' as well
    In the playground they play a chasing game where someone is 'on it'. When I was little, in Bucks, we just played 'IT'

    A 'Correct Speech, Spelling and Grammar' group would be good!

    How about this. A virtual prize of no monetary value or substance to anyone translating Adge Cutler's Thees Got'n Whur Thee Casn't Back'n Asn't? or at least what activity he is referring to. WITHOUT using Google etc.


    Jo'burg, I travelled through there last month. Do you get fed up with people thinking you are Australian. I'm not too good apart from a few words of Sotho but I do understand a fair bit of Afrikaans, as it it quite Germanic.

    That stretch up to here too. 'Where you bin to?' Where's that pen to?'

    I like regional dialect and think it good to speak both that and proper English, with an emphasis on both.

    Another hate for me is 'Fing' it's 'Thing'

    Leave me on - As in "the computer won't leave me on my password". I don't know why, but it makes me mad when the kids in school say it, and it's not just one or two, it's nearly all of them!
