THE COCKNEY ACCENT

Slide 2

Phonetical highlights that contrast from RP a)Vowels: - [i:]  [  i:] ([mi:]  [m  i:]) -   [u:]  [  u] ([du:]  [d  u]) -   [e]  [  ] ([get]  [g  t]) -   [ı]  [e] ([ıf]  [ef])

Slide 3

b) Diphthongs: - [a  ]  [a  ]/[  ] ([ma  l]  [ma  l]) -   [e  ]  [  ] ([pe  p  ]  [p  p  ]) -   [a  ]  [  :] ([ta  n]  [t  :n])  propensity to bring together back vowels and diphthongs and an inclination to adjusting ("nasalisation")

Slide 4

c) Consonants: -   \'h\'- dropping (\'ouse) -   \'g\'- dropping word at last (doin\') or articulated as a "k" in words, for example, "nothink" -   nosy "r" ("Maria Ann"  "Maria ran") -   old Cockney: exchange of "w" and "v" ("wery cool vater") -   glottaling of \'p\', \'t\', "k" word-medially and –finally ("What a considerable measure of little jugs"  [w       ] -   "th" is articulated as "f" (voiceless) and "v" (voiced) or word at first as "d" in pronouns like "this" or "those" ( My farver finks dis) -   oversight of "w" in unaccented position and compound words (to some degree  summat) -   "l" is articulated as a semi-vowel/w/when it is trailed by a Velar/l/(drain  [mıwk]) exclusion of unaccented syllables (\'sted, \'cause, fam\'ly)

Slide 5

Some trademark linguistic use of Cockney: -   Double invalidation (" I don\'t know nothing about it") -   3 rd individual sing. "s" appended to different people ( comparable utilization of "is" and "was"  "The blokes is goin\' to de pictures") -   utilization of irregular superlatives ("worser") -   Adjectives utilized as Adverbs ("it must be done fast") -   Possessive pronouns displayed on "mine" ("ourn", "theirn", "hern") -   Reflexive pronouns demonstrated on "myself" ("He supposes a considerable measure of hisself") -   "that" is supplanted by "what" in expressions like " a bloke what I knows" rhyming slang ("Britneys" = brews)

Slide 6

Some trademark Cockney vocabulary -   stretchers = lies -   nose = nose -   chap = companion -   swop = trade -   choaker = tie -   screwed = plastered to mug = to ransack
