Ah’m coorently readen the Marabo Stork Neetmaeres, is reet barry, ye ken? Like ah sais, reet barry. But ah cannae healp but woonda that the majoority uv reedars, Anglish, Yanks, Sooth Efrikans an aw thim, thais mite no git et. Aw this bloody Embra prurnunciaeshun, et cood bae reet hard tae reed son. Ye ken?

Soa tae alleevaeate thes proablem ah’ve goan an envented a translaeta, reet? Like ah sais, an effin' translaeta. Et’s thu sieze aw a wee PDA wi a screen on thu feace. Yi hurld et urver the page and et scans et wi sum tixt-recaugnishun soft-effin-weare and then desplaeys the wurds on screen in Queen’s Anglish, ah kid ye not. Thin poncin Anglish bastads can reed et wi’oot looken leek thaiv shat thimselves!

       [desabrigado nuclear] É bàsicamente um PDA pequeno como a máquina que faz a varredura de uma página do discurso fonético de Edimburgo e a traduz no inglês de Queen's, e o versa vice. Como eu disse, eu tenho alguns sobressalentes para fora da parte traseira se você gostar de um?

       I tried reading the idea. I sounded like Ken Bruce would, had he spent some of his formative years in Newcastle.

       I read some of the Grimm fairytales recently and some of them took about twice as long to read because of the dialects. [+]

       //I sounded like Ken Bruce would, had he spent some of his formative years in Newcastle.//   

       [david], a Glaswegian in Newcastle sounding like he's from Edinburgh isn't far off, at least geographically speaking. You can draw a nice arc through the three of them with Embra in the middle.

       Taped to a shredder in an office in Embra this week, I saw the following typed note:   

       "Dinnae empty the shreader."

Yes indeed old bean. Having spent time in residence with some of our northern cousins a number of years ago, I was most alarmed to discover how easily Mr Leopard caused me to lapse back into the vernacular. I had thought that I was cured of this affliction but now I shall have to make an appointment with my therapist.

       Apologies for any harm done [DrBob], and thank you for indirectly advocating the necessity of this product; vis a vis to ensure distinguished English gentlemen remain free of vernacular mishaps.
