Are you well spoken?

25 posts in this topic

How do you guys speak?

Recently I've raised the levels I'm rarely using slang and trying to pronounce everything properly... (ie saying "water" instead of "wa'er".

Much more classy and women seem to prefer it

'Can I get a wa'er ?'

*plainface*

'War???'

'Nah wa'er, bottled wa'er'

'Oh you mean water'

*plainfaces back*

'That's what I said '

Is the story of my life ordering anything abroad or with them foreign waitresses in London.

Nah . Quite the opposite actually . Speak with a mix of inner street slang,with the occasional use of ebonics and patois

I am not.

 

It is a bit of concern for me and would like to correct/improve it at some point however one thing I don't do is try to talk 'white' especially at work. I have one voice and it is the same in any situation

Not at all

 

Even when I'm trying my hardest, it'll always be completely obvious to most people listening that I am from the ends.

 

It's very peak.

Always been well spoken, even when I was spitting and going radio, it throws people off but its who I am.

 

It's weird when people say I sound "Posh". You don't have to be posh to be well spoken I was just raised correctly

Yes. My accent has become completely neutral over the last couple of years, from constantly being around people who don't speak English as a first language

Yeah same, as a very young kid had a lot of Patios words and a slight touch of a jamaican accent cos I used to spend loads of time with my grandparents

 

Other scouser say I sound posh and when I go OT nobody believes Im from Pool.

I would be considered 'well spoken' no one speaks in slang naturally it's a learned habit, so it's a time and a place thing for me.

 

With friends having fun, I may drop some slang words in,dealing with people in a professional capacity I watch my P's and Q's.

I make a conscious effort to be just because of the industry I work in and the people I work with

It's annoying though because they complain at times that they don't understand me then I'll be back in Liverpool and the boys will be like "the fuck you speaking like that for?"

Can't win :lol:

well spoken but do a bit of a see-saw act when speaking

 

got thrown in a private school for a couple years mid education and people say that explains why i talk how i talk

 

round friends and close compadres my chat gets lazy and in a serious setting i try and over compensate, people think i'm posh but i'm not

 

ultimately i like throwing people off anyway always have done

 

accents are great though, be proud of yours

 

unless your some one eighth black white girl with the blocked up nose rude girl swag no thanks do not want

Working class people think I'm posh.

Toffs think I'm a cockney.

Yeah at times. Unless I'm in a formal environment - in which case I'm always well spoken - my speech is usually on autopilot, adjusting depending on the person, the environment, and how I'm feeling.

Yes and No.

 

I know when I need to be e.g. work or a formal environment

 

No - when I'm around people I'm comfortable with.

 

But the two mix about depending on who it is.
