Mirek

We in Liverpool have our very own dialect, Scouse, which the rest of the country finds hard to understand.

Thank you in Scouse is 'ta' as in - Ta Ken

I was brought up to always say thank you.

Where you would say Cześć , English people say hello, but we scousers say ullo dere.

And so it goes on......................................

The dictionary says:


Scouse is noted for a fast, highly accented manner of speech, with a range of rising and falling tones not typical of most of northern England. This has led to some people from the Midlands referring to Liverpool people as "Sing-song Scousers".

Irish influences include the pronunciation of the letter 'h' as 'haitch' and the plural of 'you' as 'youse'.

There are variations on the Scouse accent; with the south side of the city adopting a softer, lyrical tone, and the north a rougher, more gritty dialect. These differences between both the north side and the south side of the city can be seen in the pronunciation of the vowels. The northern half of the city more frequently pronounce the words book, cook, look and took, as in the words boo, coo, loo and too, and then adding the k sound at the end. The southern half of the city show a greater likeness to the more common pronunciation of these words.

Sorry Red Poppy - I thought your command of Polish would have stretched to 'hello', 'goodbye' 'how much?' and basic anatomical parts. Maybe I have overestimated you. Take a hot toddy instead.

Damellon, if I had any 'main tenets' I would hold them closely to my chest! Could be painful though :cry: If vine etiquette is what you require then I think Ken is the man to ask. I'm a vine virgin and would probably only lead you astray :wink: As for a clear conscience, maybe a nod to God is in order, as I definitely can't help you there :lol:

P.S. Would be an absolute pleasure to have you on this most (and getting moster) interesting of vines :D

Ashtray!! I don't even smoke!!! (This is beginning to sound like a Marx Brothers rant, with a spoonful of Red Poppy to boot).

:? I'm even beginning to confuse myself :? So, in the words of Groucho Marx himself:

Birdonawire -tick-tock- this sounds to me like a LeAnn Rimes song. Dangermouse could probably confirm. Her kind of song, I'd say. If you don't know it, ask her to sing it to you when you meet her in the Travelodge.

I'll make sure to ask. I must remember to bring a sheet of tissue and a comb. We may need some musical accompaniment.

APOLOGY :oops:

Dear Red Poppy
I stand here with bowed head. I owe you an apology. I overestimated my command of the Polish language, which of course you spotted immediately but were too kind to point out. For other readers - it appears I rendered you both female and lopsided with my use of the word piers to describe where I wished to put the wintergreen rub. I should have written - klatka piersiowa - a flatter and more manly prospect.
Feedback from another source tells me that lipread, although an English word, can mean something other than the usual one and may have been interpreted this way by some readers. It was written with its usual meaning.
Altogether a bit of a bummer of a posting! Sorry.
How is your cold? Relax - I won't be offering another remedy.
