By this definition you are saying them wrong then.

By what definition? Both words have 2 consonants after the vowel so should be said short, which is how I say them

No, both words have two graphemes representing a single phoneme, after the vowel. Unless it's a rather odd variety of English, 'th' and 'ss' are both pronounced as a single sound. :B

Way to confuse speech and writing, bro.

They have two vowels, but only one sound.

As for an accent, thankfully my Norfolk roots don't show too much..only in a few words at most.


I always get told I sound posh as well though, maybe that is our accent! 8)

I don't have much of a North Eastern accent- slight hint of it in certain words, like shit (for some reason). I get more northern when I am angry and pissed. And if I am both it's even worse.

i have the greatest accent because its scottish but not easily recognisable as any regional scottish accent 8) and of course, its not english, which makes it instantly not shit.

This. :lol: And from spending too much time at work my small talk tends to slip into the plastic scouse accent of the chavvy folk around here. ''IYAAA, Y'ALRIGHT?'

Thats because all east midlanders are happy that they have found someone that sounds as stupid as they do.

I'm so glad I don't have a Leicester accent, it's the worst sound known to man. Also, as a linguistic student, I have to say that both pronunciations of grass are equally valid etc. Having said that, bastard, sounds much much better with a short a. FACT.

same! I sound well yorkshire
I am sad to say that I now have a Canadian twang to my accent. Plus I hang around with a lot of Austrailians, and combined with the stupid southern-isms I picked up while at uni , my accent probably sound incredibly fucked up.
I am still Leeds through and through though.

Dear lass who's all up in my buisness like she knows me (Who are you?) from work (WHO ARE YOU!?), and uses that to hustle drinks,

Fuck you.

Yours sincerely,
All men ever.
