Talk With A Cockney Accent Game

Postby Detective TurtleHolmes » Mon Nov 26, 2007 2:30 pm

For those unacquainted with the word, it's basically old English talk.
Example: Wot's all this then? I say, old boy, looks as though you've got a bit of cad in you, chap!

So yeah. basically, the game is, you try and have a normal conversation, but make it as Ye Olde English as possible, kay?

I'll start.

I say, this whole change of Prime Ministership in Aurstralia, Kevin Rudd giving old Johnny the good heave ho, do you think that's all cricket?

Cockney

Postby black bart » Mon Nov 26, 2007 5:31 pm

You are a little confused here matey...Cockney is not posh it comes from the Streets of London, the common folk (like Madonna and Guy Richie), can incorporate Rhyming slang and it goes a bit like:

Awright Geezza Gor blimey, I went for a ruby last night and it was hot enough to burn the aris off a fireman...only cost me an Ayrton Senna though, luv a duck.

And this ladies and gents is why I don't go to England much. You bastards tell US to speak "Right proper Queens English" when all I'm reading here are made up words that make no sense.

Some rhyming slang has made it into common English speech, including cobblers (cobbler's awls) and berk (Berkley hunt).

You can get a rough idea of Cockney speech from Only Fools and Horses (though some of the slang they use was made up for the show).

In connection with the Berkley Hunt reference above there is a more modern (1970s) but similar (except more offensive) useage of James Hunt (former F1 driver).

As in "that Black Bart is a right James"
