[quote=purdy]In the North especially around the North West - Derry/L'derry - it is popular to finish a sentence with "Hi" ie

Whoops to clarify that should be in the North of IRELAND!

Just thought of another also - people who after stating a fact end the sentence with "so it is" ie

This is a great community, so it is - WHY????????

i live in cornwall and although i dont have a strong cornish accent i do say things that i have since had pointed out are not proper words
the examples of his are
smeeched up which is smokey like when cooking sausages
cabbed up which is when people play with there food
then there are the obvious ones like proper job etc .
