Thing is, no-one can help regional accents, it's part of the language. But they can at least try to use the correct words. There is a difference between Free and Three, Thing and Think - moan moan...... What about when you take the wife to a restaurant after serving the food the waiter returns to ask "Is everyfinkalright wiv your meal?" or "Do you want anyfinkelse?" What TF is that all about?

'Bought' is not the same word as 'brought'.

Why is something that is free always described as 'for free'? What's wrong with either 'free' or 'for nothing'?

'Lent' and 'borrowed' get interchanged.

never was taught that one it was always "I" before "E" except after "C"  with as has been said exceptions

quite agree wiv the cafe comments, one near me had a manageress who would inquire " Youse ones alright there" and today I got the "you all right there mate " treatment from of all places Marks and Spencers - think there could be to old gents turning in their graves

I think it's all done on purpose, to confuse us foreigners. By the time we think we got the hang of it, we discover we're behind again *smile*
