I read that Geordie is a nickname for a person from the Tyneside area of North East England. I believe there is a big difference in accent, slang and dialect compared to Scousers, even BOTH speak in English, I think (for a non-British English speaker like me). How to "identify" the Geordie actually when they start opening their mouth? Really, is it too much difference than the other English people?

Just sharing, another thing that I read is: Up until the mid 19th century, Liverpudlians spoke with similar tones to their Lancastrian neighbours. But as a port city with a constant influx of immigrants, Liverpool became a melting pot of different dialects. After mass immigration post WWII, Irish had a major influence on the Scouse accent, creating the instantly recognisable sound we know today.

p/s: I believe my boss is going to start questioning me in the meeting even if I start using the terms like "lads" and "the project is like a tit" (please, I am not referring to a breast or nipple).
I am having a good time in RAWK during my rest time in office but I am always trying to be a dormant Scouser the best as I can here.
My another big boss during is in London and during intercontinental video conference, he saw my Steven Gerrard avatar in my Microsoft's profile image and his first question was, "Why do you support Liverpool?" in uncomfortable tone (like I am a non-British glory hunter or something).

After he listened to my answer, he told me that he's born and bred as a Manchester City fan. He was around 50-55 years old, currently staying in London, my big boss.

My answer: I just answered him, the first time I watched Liverpool when I was a kid was during Robbie Fowler period, and I just straight fall in love (it's 1994, I think). Reason, I am / was not even sure what's the reason and why. But I am 100% no doubt and still remember, that first game in front of my eyes on TV, Liverpool were losing  / trailing 0-2, two goals from Gary Pallister and Andy Cole (I can't remember it's a league or FA Cup game, sorry).

I am not sure until right now, during THAT time, why I was supporting the losing team, the team that was playing from behind and struggling in chasing the game. Until now. But I did, fall in in love.

Pallister and Cole scored in a league game at Anfield, but it was 1997.
Pallister opened the scoring before John Barnes equalised. Pallister made it 1-2 with Cole scoring their 3rd.

Aahhh thanks!! The state of my mind though. It's magic you still remember it, haha!! My bad, my bad... That, yes that was the game that drew me in as what I can remember in my brain!!!

Was watching it with my cousin and I kept supporting the losing team, till the end. Hahahah!!  ;D  ;D  But no doubt, there were Gary Pallister and Andy Cole in that specific game.

Thanks, sir... I believe you are older than me and following Liverpool much much earlier than me. Really appreciate that, the information of the game.

Love your posts NarutoReds.

In answer to your question about accents, like most countries the UK has a huge variety of regional accents. Some of them form a continuum so that you can plot the tiny changes as you travel from region to adjacent region.

There's no single 'true' UK accent. In many countries the accent of the capital city is usually regarded as a base accent for the nation, but that doesn't apply to the UK. Some people regard a form of adopted Home Counties/Oxfordshire accent known as Received Pronunciation, which was favoured for many years by the BBC and theatre, and in political and diplomatic circles, as the closest we can get to a base 'UK accent' - although this view is, naturally, highly controversial. Interestingly the exact origins of RP remain unclear but that's a different and highly involved subject.

It's also worth remembering that even within a lingustic region there can be a lot of variation; there's more than one Scouse accent, more than one Geordie and so on.

Geordie accents are deemed to be quite 'strong', with 'strong' being classed by the degree of divergence from RP. Scouse is also seen as 'strong' by this measure, but the two are very different in form and historical development.

The best way to recognise and familiarise yourself with different accents is to listen a lot to people from the region. For Geordie accents in football you could listen to Alan Shearer who has a mild Geordie accent, or to Paul Gascoigne whose accent is much stronger to the point where some southerners have difficulty understanding everything he says, esp if speaking fast.

For Scouse, you could listen to TAW whose Scouse contingent cover most (though not all) of the variations.

This is a very complex subject, as it must also be in your country of origin, with lots of controversy and disagreement. But it's also endlessly fascinating.

Thanks for the reply, Ghost Town!!! That is a really kind reply for me. Firstly, I appreciate the info regarding Home Counties / Oxfordshire accent known as "Received Pronunciation".

I just knew it today. For someone who is from Information Technology background and job like me, more American English creeping in our programming language and terms.

Spending my time in lovely RAWK forum is the only way to keep my Scouseness sanity and my Scouse Dream.

I even spending time to do a research on how the Scousers are communicating. And I found this awesome sentences written on the blog.

Lid / lad is an extremely popular scouse phrase, which can also be shortened to 'la', another popular word in the city.

'Lid' originates from the slang 'bin lid' which translates to 'our kid' so 'lid' (or lad / la) is another way of referring to a male acquaintance.

The phrase 'alright lid' is basically the scouse way of saying "hello mate".


I will remember that. I will. This is fecking fun. Erm... Fecking? Wait, sounds like a RedCafe that. It's fucking fun, that's more like it.

p/s: And for God sake you were replying me at "02:02:48 am"... Get some sleep, mate...

I wish I didn't remember it, but unfortunately I do. Man Utd released the game on VHS with the title "Heading For Glory" as all the goals scored were headers.

I opened by first ever ISA this time last year. Stuck £5k in it and opted for a Stocks and Shares one. In the last few months thatís taken a bit of a hit. Itís currently worth about £200 less than when I opened it. It obviously did warn that things can go down as well as up and advised it being a longer term thing.

Will the rate increase today translate to better rates on savings accounts?

Yeah not been a great month or two but these things are meant for the long term, it will bounce back.

I've already seen my interest rate on one of my savings accounts rise - if only a tiny bit - since the last rate rise (Marcus) so likely to see more after this.

In terms of a S&S ISA, I use Fidelity, which I like, but I think Vanguard charges lower fees. I think you can only select Vanguard funds through them though.

Yeah, last few months have been pretty shit in terms of stocks and shares funds.

Also, if your under 40 and looking at something for the long term donít forget the LISA. For anyone not familiar you can open one before your 40, pay in up to £4k a year until your 50 and the government tops up your contributions by 25% up to £1k a year. Only drawback is you can only withdraw the money either when you buy a house or turn 60.

Also, if your under 40 and looking at something for the long term donít forget the LISA. For anyone not familiar you can open one before your 40, pay in up to £4k a year until your 50 and the government tops up your contributions by 25% up to £1k a year. Only drawback is you can only withdraw the money either when you buy a house or turn 60.

Can you open a LISA if you already had a Help to Buy ISA and used that for your first purchase?

Is that a recent thing or the one he did a while back looking at the odds of beating the market (at 1%) where he said 5k was about the sweet spot with "average luck"? I'd love a read of it if its another one.

Keep the faith indeed. I'd take a few years of no wins for a win at the Emptyhad I tell ya

Looks like you can have both, but you canít use both to buy a house, so you the Help to Buy ISA to buy a home, and sit on the LISA until your 60.

Thinking is overrated.
The mind is a tool, it's not meant to be used that much.
Rest, love, observe. Laugh.

It seems to be dated 22/3/22. It's probably the same, there's a couple of lines that contradict each other imo.

Is it a recent install? If so, have you got a recent restore point you can roll back to?

If your moral compass is Piers Moron then I ask you to think whether someone who oversaw illegal phone hacking and published fake pictures depicting War Crimes is an appropriate person to look up to. In fact, I'd suggest you're a bit of a c*nt.
