Backwoodsman BS: Regional UK Accents (137* d) RE: BS: Regional UK Accents 01 Aug 21


@JennieG - we go to both sides (we’re UK-ers), Ontario to visit my wife’s brother and his family, and AB/BC because we love it there and can’t get enough of it! Every trip, be it East or West, someone (usually several someones) asks us where we’re from and remarks on our ‘cute accent’ (which, as we’re from an area more or less between Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, and Yorkshire, is a kind of mish-mash of those three, and is far from standard ‘BBC’ English). It feels really, really strange to be told we have a ‘cute accent’ because, to our own ears, we don’t have an accent at all, it’s the nice Canadians complimenting us who have the accent!
