Anonymous said: Random Q but is there any accent you have heard that was so thick you barely understood them? I have a Croatian friend I barely understand haha. I am Canadian by the way. Thanks!
Well an overall country, no. But dialect “wey aye, man”(can you guess yet?).
If you ever stumble across someone from Newcastle, god rest your soul, you won’t understand a bloody thing.
I have a mate with a thick Geordie accent up there. I have learned to shake my head and smile. Even when he is not using “geordie” words, I can’t understand anything that comes out of his mouth. I have met some posh geordies that I understand but overall I have trouble.
He, personally, was a “gadgie” that speaks quite fast as well (like most from their) but I do fancy a good Geordie accent here and there. Spice of life I suppose.
Here is a SLOW version of Geordie: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zwx0-oewjsM
Now imagine it super fast.
Here are some random sentences with geordie slang and imagine with accent as well:
"Hoy a hamma owa here, hinny."
"Howay, man, marra, let’s gan doon the pub for some beltas scran."
"Howay, man, hinny, I said I was clamming!"
"Where’s ya netty, marra? I’m busting"
"Howay man! We gannin’ doon Morrisons to beat the queue?"
"That gadgie’s gannin’ proper radgie, like."
"See that gadgie at the front of the geet walla queue?"
"There’s a geet walla queue at Asda, gan to Morrisons instead, marra"
Now keep in mind I am not Geordie but I lived in England and my best mate was. I am not trying to offend either. In fact, I find it quite attractive when I hear this dialect (this goes out to you Steven!).
Have a lovely day filled with beautiful accents and lovely people. Cheers♡
