I'm from Durham.
*We hoy ourselves about the dance floor, hoy our clays in a suitcase, hoy insults about, hoy the remote over when someone else wants it and we don't and hoy our floor clowts out when they're hacky.
*That's the royal 'we' obviously, I'm not talking about every person who lives in Durham

I was at a lecture at Newcastle Uni last week.
No 't' in Socrates or Socratic and missing syllables in 'Quest'nin'.
Eleventy billion times over a whole morning.
I (now) appreciate there is no 't' in Metro either and its a regional thing
But i was knawing my own arm by lunchtime :)
( I also appreciate that 'evelenty' is an annoying word. i dont use it normally!)

Pronouncing th as f. As in vo instead of though and free instead of three.
Absolute height of laziness and ignorance. IMO
I used to do that when I lived in London, because although I can hear a difference in the way I pronounce d and th, English people don't. There isn't a th sound in Irish, so we (some of us!) have difficulties with the lingual contortions required. It's a bit like how you'd feel if you had to use the Xhosa click when speaking quickly - easy enough to do the click if you stop to think about it, but not easy in mid-sentence.
