David from Ipswich

Whenever me or my family go up north we are always mistaken for Australian, when in fact our accent is just the good old Suffolk one! I love having an accent, and mine is nowhere near as strong as the rest of my family, and to be honest I'm jealous! The Ipswich accent can be distinguished because of putting an extra syllable into words- town is pronounced 'tow-an' and floor 'flo-or' school will be said 'schoo-al' etc and the word 'ba' at the end of a sentence also seems to be distinctly suffolk, eg: are you alrite ba? mweaning quite simply 'are you alright' In the UK there are massive changes in accent and dialect in very small areas, much more so than it appears so in other countries- and this is a good thing, and proves a real sense of local, and regional, identity

He did ! first time we had met, we had just shook hands and he immediately said "Where the fook is that accent from man ? Australia ?"
