Thanks for the link to the interesting website, Lynne. I'm having fun
listening to the various dialects, although I hope I don't

I would like to add my thanks, Lynne. It's an interesting website, and fun to
listen to the wide variety of accents in this small island.

Yeah, but it sounds like you've been making those rather strange-tasting chocolate brownies again. :D

Yep - those chocolate brownies do have a strange effect. Maybe it's time to
change the recipe.

By sheer coincidence, I was listening to Suffolk radio last week and they were saying that the local Suffolk accent is the oldest regional accent and the most similar to spoken Anglo-Saxon English. The example they used was the phrase 'that'll larn 'em' (meaning 'that will teach them' as larn is a corruption of an Anglo-Saxon word 'lar' meaning 'to teach'). Another word is 'gaderian' meaning a consort, from which comes 'gader' corrupted by time to 'gether' and hence 'to gether' becoming 'together' but the same root also gives us the word 'guardian'.

Apparently the Suffolk accent is also responsible for the Australian 'upswing' at the end of a sentence that makes everything seem a question. The majority of non-convict immigrants to Australia were from the Suffolk region.

Fascinating stuff. :obsessed:


I've lived in Suffolk for quite a while and the only time I ever hear the Suffolk accent is from people born and bred in Ipswich. I think it's similar to the West Country accent which I assume both Keith Barron and James McEvoy (The German Woman) use. I find it interesting that England is almost book-ended with this 'country' accent. But for the most part I only hear a 'home counties' accent here.

The Archers accents are odd as they differ so much considering a lot of the characters are local to the area - but then as a radio show, the makers have to make it a bit easier for us lol
There's something about you fascinates me...
