    I am writing a novel that is set in Britain 1810. What can help me with how people spoke back then?

    I'm sure there are books on Amazon or in libraries about the culture of Britain in that period of time. Sounds like you're going to need to do a LOT of research, but it sounds like it's going to be good. If Amazon fails, GOOGLE it. smile

    1810 was more or less the start of the Regency period with Goerge III  as King but his son (Later George the IV was Regent for most of the final years of his father.

    You could get a feel for Georgian society and its mannerisms and preoccupations from the novels of the great writers of the times such as Henry Fielding, Mary Shelley and Jane Austen

    There is a book that I am reading written by an American Woman and house wife close to the time you are referring to by which because of her lack of what was then considered modern education, some of her words are either extended or shortened and or have different letters in them as thou she wrote as it sounded when she spoke.  American Cookery is its name, got it for less than 10 dollars at a local book store...

    I have a letter that was written from one family member to another from the mid 1800's, the way the phrased words back then make it very difficult to read, the penmanship is good but the wording is just hard to figure out what they're trying to say.

    1810 is covered by the “Late Modern English Period” of the English Language. It is the form of language used from roughly the late eighteenth century onwards to the present day. The advantage of this period to earlier periods of the English language is that there is plenty of printed information which will help you with your research, and there are even detailed records of the language such as dictionaries and grammars.

    However, be cautious because the written form of language will differ greatly to actual spoken language in this time in history, as it still does today.

    I would look for books written in that time period. The 1700 and 1800's should be pretty similar.
