anyone studying linguists would be
haunted fascinated by our local accent -
untouched for centuries and considered to be one of the oldest dialects, the harmonic tones of a black country accent beguiles and fascinates all who hear it.
any attempt at faking the accent is often met with hilarity and derision, unless of course you speak this way naturally. in which case you are stuck with the hilarity and derision and you may as well get you used to it.
Edit : it`s fine to laugh at this video, it was made by the splendid team at inspectordrake on the youtube.
picture very much related.
