    Actually the correct pronunciation is "Worserer"

    My missus uses "worserer", and she's Sheffield-born & bred...I get an internal twinge whenever she does though (and her double-negatives, use of "you was", etc.) :rolleyes:

    I've never really been bothered about any of it.

    Yes I know.

    Mind you when I was in Lancashire and people would say "Killt" instead of "Killed" I did find that a bit weird..

    Likewise. That was far too easy.

    Please, everyone:

    It is: could HAVE, should HAVE, and would HAVE! NOT: could of, should of, would of.

    Thanks

    While we're at it:

    "Loose" - not tight; "Loosing" - releasing (of something)

    "Lose" - to fail to win, to misplace something; "Losing" - failing to win, coming second, etc.

    Just the one "o" please!

    Just to add in one of my own little prejudices, it's Have not Haff when you say the word.

    On a similar theme, John Major used to say Wunt instead of Want. Fortunately he didn't make the same verbal slip up when saying Can't.

    And when you go to a fast food restaurant you cannot "get" a burger, that's the job of the person behind the counter.

    You've just reminded me of the worst part about propping up an Australian bar and how you "ged a cuppla schooners a'Carlton."
