That's just my perception as an American. I know that southern UK is far and away wealthier than the northern parts, and many within the UK might see northerners as poorer and "lower class," but their accent (to me) just comes off as more down-to-earth, and noble in a world-weary sense.


No no, don't get me wrong, the midlands area which I live in is basically like the North. We're all poor and working class aswell, our accents are as down-to-Earth as can be, and southerners class us as the same. But there are still distinct differences in the accents.

It's alright that the south hate us, we hate them. Nobody likes a posh accent.


People living in different parts of England have different accents??? I gotta get out more lol and the Brits have a North/South divide too???

I'd like to travel to Japan for fun, to explore the cities. I've never been abroad, so I'd like to someday. Going to France would be nice, especially to try the cuisine there.

100x yes I dont know why everybody only knows the one accent.
To be fair though the stereotype that we all spend most our day drinking tea is true.

Funny you should say that, I'm not much for tea, hahaha. Not much for crumpets, either. If they know more than one accent though, it's always just the cockney one, because to be honest, a lot of Americans think that the entire of England is London.

I really like the more Northern England accents, like Sean Bean's Yorkshire accent.

For me I find it a very noble, but dire and serious, accent.


Sean Bean's South Yorkshire accent.

Just to complicate matters there are 4 ridings in Yorkshire - North, South, East and West and each one has a slightly different accent.

I'm from England. I don't want to live in another country (we don't get many chavs in Wiltshire - just a lot of farmers).

I'm from England; Birmingham.

I hate Birmingham but I've been to supposedly worser places and I've liked it there.
I think everyone hates where they're from at some point, not necessarily because it's a rubbish area with rubbish people.
I'm probably just bored of living in the same old place.
I should adventure more but I don't have money to waste on train fares. D:


Think yourself lucky you ain't from Derby, we have sheep, sheep poo, dog poo and chav poo... :/

I could listen to Sean Bean talk all day (full homo). He really needs to narrate some e-books.

So what are the main differences between North, South, East, and West Yorkshire accents? And is his accent "typical" of his region or is it more due to his voice?

Because I tried to look up Youtube videos of people who spoke his accent and they all sound pretty different from him.

Ha I agree he has got a fab voice.

I guess it's the broadness, strength and harshness of the accent. The South Yorkshire accent is the strongest with the North being the most subtle. It also depends on the dialect too. These days more and more young people are copying slang from London and the South of England where as the older (especially farmer types) still speak with dialect.

From my local town website - a list of proper Yorkshire words for you.
