#SoCS May 13/17 – Language

Linda’s prompt this week:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “language.” Use it any way you’d like. Have fun!

I was hopeless at languages in school, and it was decided for me not to take my French ‘O’ level because I spoke it with a Dorset accent. As for German? Forget it, and I promptly did.
Dorset can be very broad, similar to Somerset/Devon but rounder in pronunciation.
Hubby says it’s not really noticeable unless I’m angry, and then all hell is let loose with the OOs and RRs and mixture of the two.
Dogs however don’t seem to mind my twangy lilt, but then I don’t have to say a word as my language with them is expressed lovingly with fuss, treats and tummy rubs.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Amazing how differently English speakers talk. I love the diversity – at least we understand each other – mostly!
