Transcription

The UK sound is a rich array of many beautiful regional accents and some of them differ vastly from one another so it's no wonder that a non-native english speaker might find it difficult to understand the natives. In this series we're going to be going on a trip of discovery listening to lots of different accents from different regions learning the phrases that they use and finding out what are the key features of each accent. So who are we meeting today? This is Tom. Tom is from the West Country Hello Tom, say hello Tom, alright! Now the West country accent is wonderful and there are certain phrases that you would only hear from someone in the West Country for example - Alright my lover hello mate, gurt lush, very good, 'ark at he, listen to him haha in any case, anyway, skew-whiff, crooked Where be to? Where are you going? Chucky pig, wood louse. Now as you probably gathered the West country accent is lovely it's a very fun accent isn't it Tom? But some people will associate the West country accent with farmers which is bizarre but i think that potentially comes from the BBC radio program The Archers, and what was the other drama you were talking about?Poldark which is a drama all about farmers? That's true yeah, and they have this West country accent but you have to be aware that just because someone has this accent it doesn't automatically mean they're a farmer or from a farming family so let's look at some of the common features of the West country accent now so we're going to start off with a rhotic R as you probably know from some of my other videos a standard British English accent doesn't have a rhotic R we only pronounce the R if it's at the beginning of a word or if it follows something like a th but when you're speaking with the West country accent we do pronounce the R so for example if we were to say the following words farm so i do a long vowel AH but Tom did AR and made the R rhotic let's say that again, farm, I'm going down to the farm i'm going down to the farm, warm, It's quite warm today lover, now you notice the at the end of the world lover, I'm doing the schwa ending which you would normally do for an ER ending but Tom is curling into the R so lover it's lovely isn't it? He is my lover He is my lover. Is he really? He's not! And the final word we're going to look at is first. So you'll notice I'm doing .... nice and open and Tom does .... first, there we go. I come first. The next common feature we're going to look at is the I diphthong. In the West country accent this is more like ... it's more rounded with the OR vowel rather than the a vowel at the beginning so in standard English we have I, but in west country we have ..... okay so let's look at this in action so we'll use the words guide guide me home. White Is it going to be a white Christmas? Is it going to be a white Christmas who knows! Life I'll give him the kiss of life I'll give him the kiss of life (Giggles) who is this man? I don't know. The next feature is the ng sound only when we have an ing ending so for example I would say walking walking walking I'm out walking with my dog. I'm out walking with my dog you'll notice that Tom is doing an IN ending meaning he's using the tip of the time high upon the alveolar Ridge closing it at the front, in in, whereas i use the back of the tongue high closing it off at the back: in in. So let's try that again walking walking, there we go. You could also say talking I was talking to my mother. I was talking to my mother. Another feature of the West country accent is the .... vowel, so for example I would say up. So you'll notice Tom is making more of an .... sound whereas mine's more open and light good. That's have a look at some other words: above, up and above, love, I love it up and above I love it up and above. It's such a great accent. The final feature we're going to look at today is the west country accent relationship with plosives, particularly the T sound so when a T appears at the end of the word in west country they generally odmit it so for example I would say: this and that, this and that, also when a T is in the middle of a word mostly when it starts the final syllable it becomes a glottalised T, so for example in the word water, or butter and finally better That butter is better, that butter is better mm-hmm so there you have it five simple features and a handful of phrases to help you get along if you're ever speaking to someone from the west country. So all that remains to say is thank you very much Tom for coming along Tah-dah loves. Don't forget to subscribe and remember there's going to be plenty more in this series of accent discovery. Bye
