    english english

    hi there.
    maybe you could help me.
    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:[email protected] 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]

    Re: english english

    thank you.
    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?
