The Cumbrian Accent Part Two
Part One Vocabulary
Part One & The Dictionary
Hi Guys & Gal's :)
Well after part one was such a success I have brought you part two now here is you where you will start to see the language progress and your mimicking skills will be stretched as its not an easy accent to do.
However I have filled this hub full of useful things for you such as vocabulary at the first video and also the gaelic form of counting but have only gone up to ten and on part three we shall go up to twenty.
I hope you enjoy this and look forward to your responses.
Part Two - Owt & Nowt
Owt & Nowt
Okay Owt and Nowt are commonly used in cumbrian and you will need to know what they mean as these used in quite alot of sentences with the young and old, as I explain in the video. Owt & Nowt is also used in the other accents around Northern England such as Geordie, Lancashire and Yorkshire so these two words will come in handy when or if you visit this part of England.
Part Three - Oldest Cumbrian Phrase
The Old Phrase
Here is abit of useless information for you, this is the oldest cumbrian phrase and is still used today by the older generation and alot of the younger too.
As Gan Yam Pal. - Meaning I am going home mate has been used in cumbria for hundreds of years so dont be surprised if you do hear this phrase used.
Numbers - One to Ten In Cumbrian Gaelic
Did You Enjoy This Hub?
Okay we have come to the end of Part Two as I did not want to bore you with too much information as then you would get bored and switch off - so the right of this capsule we have the old Cumbrian Gaelic form of counting, I only go to number ten here and will go further in the Part Three but try and copy my counting and then it will help you to pick up the accent, but remember you need to be able to speak fast as cumbrian is a spoken very quickly and you may not always catch what is said, so by counting this will help you gain the speed you need to develop your accent and your understanding of the person speaking :)
