The British-Irish Dialect Quiz


Recommended Posts

This has been doing the rounds today and for most people it seems quite accurate. You basically answer a load of questions about phrases you use and the way you speak and it tries to guess what part of the country you are from

I did the 25 questions version and it pretty much guessed at my West Country background

Did the full version (about 95 questions, but doesn't take that long really) and it starts to scream ZUMMERZET :lol:

My family moved down here from London when I was 3yrs old and my mum has never stopped muttering “plimsolls” under her breath whenever someone says daps!


Shame she’s missing out on saying “spanky daps” :D

 

Plimsolls, can we just draw a line under it :D

What was funny doing mine was all the words of my childhood coming back. I've definitely tempered a few things over time (I remember it being a source of great hilarity that I asked what time tea was going to be at a work thing in a different part of the country once) but I know I speak more like I did as a child when I'm around my folks.
