- You might be slightly confused by the accent, here’s a tip, just forget about T’s in the middle of words and H’s at the beginning (sorry all the ‘olly’s).
- Oh look a bread bun! WRONG THAT IS A BREADCAKE. That squishy bread bit on either side of your bacon and egg is in fact called a BREADCAKE.
- Scraps, sometimes called ‘bits’ but correctly called scraps, these are delicious bits of old batter and no fish shop worth his money wouldn’t have them.
- Some words like ‘are’, ‘of’ and ‘and’ can simply be recklessly abandoned and simply suggested. For example: ‘Put big light on’ or ‘put kettle on’.
- There is generally a stereotype that southerners are a bit soft especially in regards to a) weather and b) beer (because we all know they just drink lager).
- It’s a ‘ginnel’ not an ‘alley’.
- Try not to mention Lancashire if you can.
- London should and is referred to ‘that there London’.
- You’re ‘love’, she’s ‘love’, your neighbours who you’ve lived next to for 50 years: they’re ‘love’. It’s not a term of endearment, it’s a term of ‘I’m sorry but I forgot your name’.
- Be prepared for a liberal use of gravy , especially over chips.
