I have just got used to it now and I don't really notice it now - well apart from when the kids say watta instead of water ;)

 

No offence taken; I wasn't having a rant at you babe, I was ranting about the idiots they put on the telly!

 

Sorry for confusion! :thumbsup:

Sexy? I think not!

 

Why is it that people say ALL RIIIITE instead of all right and OVER THEARE instead of over there?

Personally, I don't like it. I cringe when I hear people from Sheffield being interviewed on TV, because they normally sound a little bit dim.

The Scottish accent is said to be the most "friendly" accent which is why alot of call centres are built up there.

 

Having said that i dont like the accent i LOVE the diallect

 

words like snap and tuck and the sayings etc are all brilliant and are alot better than cockney rhyming slang and the like

 

Ey up bud, does tha fancy gonna ale house for some snap?

 

we have some great words in sheffield, just a shame us younger folk tend not to use them as much, and opt for words like "wicked" instead of "smashing"

This is great .... it took me right back to being a little child and listening to the men from my father's works ... Barnsley accent is a bit stronger than the old Sheffeldish ... but still .... I have to agree with dilly .... mmmmmmm!
