@ the Belfast accents


I swear my accent is okay and I do not sound like conor from Neighbours.


But my mums friend needed elecution (is that how thats spelt?) lessons when they moved to the middle east because she had a ballymena accent and she says I say hair and air funny

I say - my hare - apparently its my hayer and its not err its A-err

Also I say h differently to them. thats a religion thing tho really. Protestants say it one way catholics say it another way usually.

Usually yeah because the way protestants say it is the way english ppl say it but I know a catholic who says it like all my protestant friends do


I get teased tho by my friends about it.

I also say lorry weirdly too like I come from the country - thats my antrim roots coming out - I say lurry but its supposed to be said like laurie.

Eevryone always says whats a lorry laura?! And they have a little chant everytime I say it and sing a mc flurry slurry lurry I get a country accent when im drunk. whats the deal with that??

I like French men speaking broken english I want to marry a french man or a spanish one My babies will be getting french names. Not that i particularly want any but Id call them Marc or Aimee.

My sister loves name that can be shortened - some of them are really rare - god help her poor children.
