How to make my character sound Bri'ish?
By - BEEFYCHUNKYMUNKY
Spell the interjection "oi." That's how it is for Brits, "oy" is Jewish.
Otherwise, I see literally nothing wrong with anything you've said here!
Also don’t forget to end every other sentence with “yeah?”
Read *A Clockwork Orange*, it has excellent examples.
Welly welly well well my little droogie. Perhaps a bit too much of the ol’ milk plus with drencrum?
No such thing my droogie. I'm an old veck who drinks his wicked innocent milk now. I was just having a malenky stab at the poster, trying for a smeck. I also do find the use of malchicks slang to be a horrorshow use of language and thought the lewdies might care for it.
Viddy my yarbles
I love what he does with language in that book
I'm only on chapter 4 but the tricks he pulls with it have me hooked. I normally would find it way to dark, but between the distance he introduced via language and my enjoyment of his technique I'll be hanging in for a while.
UJ/ this is genuinely good advice if you're writing my nan
Uj/ Thx now i know what not to do.
I've got no criticism, because this is spot on! I just wanted to say I love how inclusive and representative you're making your writing!
Thanks, it's been what I've been trying to do throughout my book! I try to be as inclusive as possible, which is why I **always** add a 100 page gay orgy to my stories, to really make the LGBT audience *feel* immersed.
I've read your stories, they literally make me FEEL like I'm gay.
Make it an all Bri'ish one this time!
J/ Gee good work! Heeeeey maybe you should write a story made just for gay people! Naw. Thats crazy.
^(Uj: nobody respond ok? lol)
Perfect, but I'm also offended by you're statement here.
I'll be sure to write a scalding, biased and opinionated review centered around the fact that you didn't write LGBTQ2+, or as I **prefer it**: LGBTTTQQIAA!!!
As a Brit, I can confirm that this is exactly how we talk (when we’re not being awfully posh darling, that is).
Another Brit confirming, this lad is right, wot, wot.

Just write, guv, innit m8?
Pls make him educate the Americans that they shouldn’t put the tea in the microwave
the tea belongs in the toaster goddammit
If they don’t start every single sentence with “aye” and close with “mate”, are they even Bri’ish?
Go to England and to a random donny on the street, say, 'Oi mate? I got some words for yuh, Fuck off you tea-spilling cunt', with this they'll give you a large array of words and language to use from, and will help you with dialogue. Personal experiences always triumph.
Make sure (Dahnt fahget) to mention (tew menshun) that as (that as) he pulls (he drawers) a knife (a knoife) the police (the bobbies) ask him (axe him) for his (fer ‘is) knife lisence (knoife loisense)
Lor lumme guvna, this is right pukka innit? Narmean?
U fkn wot m8?
Is there an original here?
/uj They deleted the post, but OP was asking how to make their character sound noble.

Footy's on geez.
Ities n kebobs.
Is this a historical or erotic fiction?
OH well then you need a second character with an even Britisher accent so they can have hot romantic tension and make babies whose accents are too perfect for Americans to even read.
Just read Harry Potter.
Hagrid is an excellent example, every time he speaks he does not pronounce "h".
Example: "'ello 'Arry"
Just as you already had an example of. But use him to know exactly how and when to do it. Don't forget you might need " ' " when skipping the "H"
"Crikey! You've just come" he ejaculated.
Write words in the British way for example, Color should be changed to colour, and bloody hell should be said at least once every sentence.
That's right, British spelling, always add that U.
>Basalt/Stiffy Volcano Wee
>Trampolines/Springy bouncy u u bouncy me do u a boing boing me laddio
It's really quite obvious once you get into it.
Looks fine to me
Give them bad teeth
Make sure you put a content warning for your book, some people might find it literally harmful and very triggering to read about Br*’ t* sh Pe* ple (✿◠‿◠)
Have your English characters sit around and discuss which countries they individually own. Then they can swap countries like Pokemon cards. My understanding is that you're not really English unless you own at least one country.
And writing their accents will be different, because the regional accents will change every twelve and a half miles.
I swear, I'm not trying to lose Disappointment Island deliberately.
U wot m8?
oinkiney flatulence lad, righto
Show, don’t tell: lots of wanking.
DOWNT FORGEHT TO SOBSCROIBE TO MOI YEWCHEWB!
I give your writing a D-
You made a great effort to show dialect, but never once did he say "bloody hell" or "hello gov." So he really could be from anywhere. Keep trying.
Please tell me this has a source, I beg you.
God save the Queen.
/uj It got deleted, but in it, OP was asking how to make their characters sound more noble.
Have him say things like “Throw another shrimp on the Barbie” and “ good day mate” while drinking lots of Fosters lager. Oh wait, you said British. I thought you meant he’s from Arkansas.
Your fears are unfounded. Quite so. This is a perfect example of excellent writer-ship skills. I would invite you to my polo game. Pip-pip
Up the Pears, apples and stairs .
"I like some milk in my tea. Thank you."
I think the real solution is to have the character die off on the first chapter because he is Bri ish
Pure Guy Ritchie right there guv.
Sounds like a perfect role for David Ajala.
Too few soccer references, 4/10
