I be in Shropshire at the beginning of the 19thC, that I be! I be going to my father's funeral on a dewy summer night, as t'is the custom around these parts. My brother has volunteered to be the Sin Eater, that he has.

I do be speakin' in a strange way, that I do! :D I do be thinkin' that I be takin' a long time to read this there book due to the dialect t'is written in.


(I'm trying to get my head round the dialect - I find myself trying the say the accent in my head, in fact I think I would understand it better if I said it out loud!! LOL)

My dear, you do sound roightly to be speaking some form of Dorset or Wiltshire so 'ee do!
Still, it do sound nice. If it was written in a Nottinghamshire accent it'd be horrid!

Meanwhile, I am at the Tudor court in London and have just been appointed a holy fool to the dying young king Edward.
Les proz e les vassals
Souvent entre piez de chevals
Kar ja li coard n’I chasront

Are always to be found between the hooves of horses
For never will cowards fall down there.'
