There's not much Kentucky radio online.

We don't believe in technology.

Best site ever.

My accent was most like http://www.ukans.edu/~idea/files/sound/kentucky1.mp3 in the Kentucky section, but is now more like http://www.ukans.edu/~idea/files/sound/virginia1.mp3 in the Virginia section.

Listen to these:
http://www.ukans.edu/~idea/files/sound/kentucky10.mp3
http://www.ukans.edu/~idea/files/sound/kentucky8.mp3

Good - that's the way it's pronounced! Nottingum.

When I was in America last year, everyone thought I pronounced Nottingham really strangely. They didn't believe me when I told them that that's how it's pronounced! If you went round Nottingham calling it Not-ting-HAYAM everyone would think you were weird.

I don't think I've got an accent but apparantly I have - a Mansfield / Nottingham one. I say things like " Ey up mi duck" and "Mi-sen" instead of myself.

Lara - we call them Safeways and Tescos too.

I also say "owt" instead of "anything", and nowt instead of nothing. In Yorkshire they pronounce them with like 'out' eg nout, but in Notts it's pronouned like ote or note.

Going is pronounced 'guwin'
eg I would say "I'm guwin dahn tahn wi' mi mate"

Does that make sense??

i, personally never thought Dublin accents sound like US accents. they are distinctly different. well, it might depend on what part of America you mean. if you're talking about Boston, or something, maybe, but i never thought so, and i think that is a VERY strange comment. lol.

We say nowt like whats in the cupboards?

"nowt"


I get what your saying "Im guwin to the town with my friend"

But we dont say guwin


I have a weird random made up phrase "Amn't na"


Eg: "I am stupid, amn't na?"

It means Arent I?

I have been saying it since I was 2


Nobody else I know says it

I say Nottingham right
