First topic message reminder :

So yeah, I've deigned to class up your soggy little island with my brilliance, and I want some advice from our right-wing members:

* Where do I go to take photos and prove that no-go zones are a myth?

* Where will I get stabbed by a black person? Because I definitely want to go there.

* Do you want to fight me? Or at least get drunk?

Our local resort apparently has at least three good outlets for fish and chips, there's Beale's and Finnagan's and a small local one in the fair, tried that one last year the chips were good, as was apparently the fish. I'll have to go back before it gets too full and give the others a try. Maybe I'll take a newspaper as well.

So, I've got two questions for yous all about yalls's money:

* How in the world can the 5p coin be worth more than the 2p when it's not even half the size? That's just dumb!

* Why's yousall's money made of plastic? So you can clean it off if you drop it in dog shit or ting?

Sincerely,

Ben Mothafuckin' Reilly

There is no such word as 'yousall's".  Informal English has no second-person plural (formal English has 'thee' and 'thou'), so the Scots invented y'all, transporting it to the American south.  In northeast America (primarily New York and Philadelphia), Italian immigrants came up with youse.

They are two different expressions of the same thing and there is no need to combine them.  Laughing

1. Traditionally the value of a coin was the value of the metal it was made from. Old 5ps and 10ps used to be bigger.and made out of 75% copper 25% nickel. Old 5ps and 10ps are worth more than 5p or 10p – like copper coins before them, the value of the metal in 10p and 5p coins increased until they were being made at a loss. In 2012 the Royal Mint started making 5ps and 10ps out of nickel-plated steel instead, but they were made smaller a few years before that. 2ps and 1ps don't have as much copper in them as they used to either.

2. Ask Mark Carney... it was his idea...

It probably is. It's not hard. You just flatten the vowels. Also, ya gotta lose the aspirated consonant, unless you intend to speak Ebonics (they also have an aspirated consonant). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aspirated_consonant

If you're Scot or Welsh (Gaelg), you have to lose the q-celtic accent ('Q'ware r'ya goun? Q'hat a ya doin?'). They harden the silent English 'w' with either a Q or a P...called q-celtic or p-celtic accents.

It was hard for me to completely lose my aspirated consonants at first, but in the interest of authenticity I eventually managed to relax them considerably. Razz

The Appalachian accent is derived from Tudor English.
