The Cockney Thread.. :-)

16 replies 154 views Edited Feb 6, 2013

Hello to all our UK Friends on here.  Whether you are checking in from across the pond, or living here in the US, I felt like bringing a Yank's version of some dialect to you from your home.

 

While my cockney may not be up to snuff in some respects, I have only a light experience with it, and I am sure there will be some mistakes.  As well, please forgive the grammar, as I "attempt" to stay in the accent it is most commonly spoken.

 

This being said, what may be some of the most outlandish Cockney phrases you might use at Home?

 

Cockney has always fascinated me.  We have slang here in the States, but nothing quite compares.  Not even Southern slang.Smiley LOL

 

Try to keep it clean, even if it is masked by the slang.  As well, if the slang translates to foul language in the States, be careful as well.

 

Just having some fun is all.  I will do my best.

 

Now in Cockney...

 

Wotcha ter aw our uk friends on 'ere. Whether ya 're checkin' in from accross the bloody pond, or livin' 'ere in the bleedin' us, I felt loike bringin' a yank's version of sum dialect ter ya from your Pope in Rome.

 

While me cockney may not be up ter snuff in sum respects, I 'ave only a Isle Of Wight experience wif it, and I am Bobby there will be sum mistakes. as 'eaven and 'ell, Hairy Biscuits and Cheese forgive the grammar, as I "attempt" ter stay in the accent it is most commonly spoken.

 

This bein' said, wot may be sum of the most outlandish cockney phrases ya might use at Pope in Rome?

 

Cockney 'as always facinated me. we 'ave Matheson Lang 'ere in the states, but nuffin' quite compares. not even southern Matheson Lang.Smiley LOL

 

Try ter keep it Billie Jean, even if it is masked by the Matheson Lang. as 'eaven and 'ell, if the Matheson Lang translates ter foul language in the states, be careful as 'eaven and 'ell.

 

Just 'avin' sum fan is aw. I will do me Mae West.

Love it!

 

I used to live in East London and my friends and I frequented a pub that was overrun by Cockney-types.

Are you using some kind of translator tool?  It reads pretty well in my mind, but repeated phrases like "Matheson Lang" (had no idea who that was, still don't know why it replaces slang) seem out of place.

Bob's your Uncle, it is a translatorSmiley Happy.  I know a few blurbs here and there, but to put together a full sentence I need the translator.

 

Honestly did not know why "slang" would be replaced by "Matheson Lang".Smiley Indifferent
