Lets make a list of words where you shouldn't pronounce the "a" like a southerner even if you are one


#1

Only list words where some people actually do pronounce the “a” like “ar”

eg

LancAster


#2

All of them tbh, happy to admit that us southerners are completely in the wrong regarding this.


#3

this is very noble of you Arntony


#4

bastard


#5

this got me thinking, can we get a norther in to apologise for pronouncing “auntie” as “antie” please?


#6

Heard some northerners use the short, northern ‘a’ for ‘water’. Horrendous


#7

literally none, since we invented the language.


#8

oh yeah that’s good, big fan tbh


#9

it should really be pronounced orntie I guess


#10

We’ve only managed one word so far guys. I had another when I came up with this thread idea the other day but I can’t remember it now.


#11

I’m not a fan of the American pronunciation of pasta or Mario


#12

Grass, because it makes you all sound like complete pricks.


#13

Or Craig


#14

Words beginning with ‘trans’. E.g. transfer, transport, transparent.


#15

Or hover


#16

yes, brilliant, I think “transparency” was the one I heard on the radio, probably some Tory talking about how they’re going to put the whole internet in prison I think.


#17

I know of someone that used to like to barbecue on the pa®tio rather than patio.


#18

I often say ‘sarndwich’ to see if I can get a rise out of people but I’m not sure anybody actually says it like that.


#19

nope


#20

I think graph should be another one because I say graphical with a short a but after 30 odd years of saying it as ‘grarph’ I’m not sure I can change.
