i am writing my graduation work about english accents and i cannot find them well described on the Net.
could you help me transcript this using IPA?
i would be really grateful
from COLLECT BRITAIN - Putting history in place
about staffordshire accent:
definite article occasionally ģ [?]; definite article + V ģ [D] (the other [DUD@] girl); H-dropping; Yorkshire assimilation (I were too forward for them [fQ:w@t fQr/ @m])
PRICE [a: ~ a:I > A:]; MOUTH [a: ~ aU]; GOAT [OU]; START [a: > A:]; STRUT [U]; BATH [a]
<-ook> ģ [u:k]; <gl-> ģ [dl]; <-ng#> ģ [Ng]
note also our [aU@], cloths [klQDz], because [bIkQs], always [Q:lw@z], one [wQn] and once [wUns], schoolmaster [sk}:lma.st@], couldnít [kUdn@], donít [dUn@ ~ do:nt], half [a:f], teemed [tEmd], didnít [dIn@], whatín-you-may-call-it [wQtnIkQt]

Re: english english
i'got only IPA chart and as a matter of fact this is all i need for in my country it is the only respected phonetic symbols alphabet.
but yes, i need help - just like i said - i need to transcript that text above using IPA.
i cannot send you a PM, cause i'm a noobie here and i have to write at least 10 posts to be able to do this.
like for example - what does it mean?
[a: ~ a:I > A:]
i assume it's sth like
/a: - ai > ??/
what does capital A: stand for in IPA?
and so on.
could you, or anyone else here help me, please?
