Every one who does not come from the midlands assume that the brummie accent is "black country" sorry folks but it's not...they are two completeley different dilects, we are more posher than them I'm a Brummie and i cannot understand what the yam yam's say half the time..It's like living on another planet!!!
Chocolate is made in Bournville, which is in the south of Birmingham and certainly not in Yam Yam country
Spoken like a true Dummy Brummy
Timothy Spall AKA Barry from auf wiedersehen pet, has a lot to answer for, every one in the UK thinks that the Wolverhampton and Dudley Building Society is the great bastion of Birmingham....Ummmmm
I know Bill, I was taking the mickey out of myself for poking fun at the standard of spelling where I live but getting it wrong myself
I'm glad that you like the dialect, although strictly speaking the chocolate is made up the road in a nice part of Birmingham ( we have a dialect but poor spelling, Birmingham only has an accent but great chocolate )
There is no accent in Birmingham, we speak queen's english. Eeveryone in the Queen's head at the end of our road speaks it.
Seems like the poster is a put up job as I am fairly sure I ignored one just the same in Cheltenham last week.
Forgot to add I grew up in Stechford,emigrated south in 1969
The dialects of the Midlands are varied and extremely highly developed. Where else can so much be expressed or meant by so few guttural sounds
I write as son of the Black Country, and I have difficulty in understanding Brummies, even though Birmingham is just next door.
Its often the case that in multi-language instruction books, its usually the English which is the the most succinct, yet if it were translated into any of the midland dialects it would be even shorter; probably "Ask the kids"( (English translation)
To this southerner 'the Black Country' means chocolate and a great accent!
......... as I wrote the above I thought to myself I am going to get corrected here
We doe have chocolate here in the Black Country. We have "suck" and it comes from Teddy Grays in Dudley.
