The Cumbrian Accent
Welcome - Calpol 25 Here
Hi everyone its Calpol 25 here....
I got the idea about this hub from Daniel Carter yesterday about doing a video hub with my accent for you to see that its a very different sort of English to what many of you will be used to hearing.
My accent is Northern English and is Cumbrian therefore it becomes a very complex accent for you to understand so I have linked this hub to the cumbrian colloquial one so that you can refer to that when you hear me speak.
I hope you enjoy and please let me know if you want a second part :)
All the best.
Stage One - Eh and Gan
Stage One these are excerpts from the colloquial hub so you can understand how these words are used and their meanings :)
Eh - this is tonal as I have mentioned - This word has many meanings and i say word because it is one of the most common colloquial words used in cumbria, and depeneding on what context you use it can decide how you speak to some one, for example EH is used at the end of nearly every sentence when talking some one - so I will explain this mysterious word to you as it has many meanings - for example - When said aggresively - EH! - means what did you say? When said politely usually in a sentence for example - How you doing eh? - the eh means, is there anything wrong? Some times when people are confused they will use EH!! aggresively not always meaning to be aggressive its just trying to understand what you said? And it is this Eh that a lot of cumbrians use, further south of the country in the other counties people will say Ay? and then when you come to cumbria we Eh?. Becareful when using this word, make sure you dont come across aggresive as it can start a fight with someone, as it is a short way of saying Are you wanting a fight? Its a complex word.
Gan - The word Gan is very commonly used here and replaces the word "going". This word is used quite alot by everyone in cumbria, and is pronounced with a gutteral G and the word an added together to form Gan.
A very common sentence in cumbria is "Where ya gan to?" Meaning where are you going?
Stage Two - Meeting & Greeting
Stage Two - Meeting & Greeting
Its pretty simple just try to remember the three way stage as I explain in the video.
My Goodbye Message
I hope that you have enjoyed listening to me ramble on and that you have found this hub useful. please let meknow if you want to learn more as I will bring a part two out to you :)
All the best Calpol 25 :)
