Iceberg Grounded in Torbay, Newfoundland

Well, obviously the song is kind of taking the piss of the accent, but my grandparents sound exactly like that and they’re from Bonavista. People from the Avalon probably won’t because there’s a lot of Irish accent there. A lot of the tropes are mostly older generation, but it’s not uncommon to hear things like:

– “gurt” in place of “great”
– “they” in place of “those”
– “e” in place of “him”, and common dropping H’s
– “where’s it to?” in place of “where is it?”
– EDIT: Also the ubiquitous “my luvver” in place of “dear”, which I understand was also a west-country thing.
