I love language.
I enjoy hearing accents and learning how other people speak and pronounce words.
Years ago the educational channel did a series on the history of English. And did you know that Shakespeare's English is still spoken in the USA and very much so in some places like Tangier Island?
Yes, they say Hoy Toyd for high tide!
We also still use words long ago dropped in Britain like "platter". Platter is still very much in use in American speech.
How do you say these words? Here is my list and my way of saying them:
I say Blagard
I say weskit
I say bozun
I say gunnels
I say folksul
I say clabord
I say four-head
And here is the video of English as spoken in Shakespeare's day and by many in the 1600's early colonial America.
