Oh lm the same G l just copy accents which l dont really mean to do!

And you shouldve heard my country accent back with full vengence when l spent a few day sat home over Christmas!!

As for words l do tend to say "No worries" quite a bit but lm not really sure where l picked that up from - yes lve been in NZ but l only spend 3 weeks there and that was 2 years ago!

jeez yeah now that you say it.... I've said "no worries mate" a few times since I've been back. I also went to a few parties and people were "takin the piss out of me", "tryin to wind me up" cause of the way I emphasize the end a sentence. I can't help it...few more months and I'll be back to normal.

Unless you go traveling again before then...

I do say "no worries" often but I picked that up in Jamaica -along with "thanks and praise".

In the North of England we don´t drop our Ts but instead use a ´´glottal stop´´ which means using your epiglottis to block the air instead of pronouncing a normal T. The American T is generally pronouced as a D, and i think that´s what was being talked about before with Conneticut.
