And don't think you have a monopoly on weerd accents across the pond!

I've been living in the Durham/newcastle area for 7 years now, and the local accent here is almost incomprehensible to the uninnitiate.

For at least the first year I was up here, I never realized the river which flows through newcastle is the tine, not the "tane"

I also was very confused whenever someone told me to "wack into toon" rather than walk into town.

The only lucky thing is that probably through a combination of singing, stage performing, and associating with lots of students and professors, my own accent has just got more and more sterriotypically queens English to the point where everyone assumes I'm upper class!

"Which is jolly strange what?" Lol!

Beware the Grue!
