I know Jandals and Flip Flops as thongs
unless someone is from way east, they speak real funny there. I thought it would be fun to have someone from the deep south try and converse with a Newfoundlander. lol that'd be a REAL laugh
Interesting! I'm north of Detroit and pronounce roof as r00-f and all the t's as d's the same as canadians. Guess we are close enough in location to share a few strategies.
A small segment from the North East England phrase book:
Whats the crack like? (what is going on)
I had a blag of the bandit and lost a tenner. (I tried my luck on the fruit machine and lost ten pound)
You wanna go like? (Sir if you are not careful, I will fight you)
You see, up north, we're a lot more common, and don't speak as posh.
Also I'd like to question a popular misconception I've seen on American programs. Warm lager :S. Never seen it before, we like our lager chilled. Our ales are kept at a warmer temperature however so it's probably where it comes from.
