Careful past yer grannies, this friday is TLAB Day 09

It’s simple, this Friday is Talk Like A Brummie Day — what do you have to do? Talk Like A Brummie.

Easy for some of you, harder for others, but there are pages of words and phrases to use n the TLAB dictionary and accent tips too. If you don’t speak to people much, feel free to “type like a Brummie” and pepper your internet communication with phonetic rendering a bit “loike” this.

Phew it's all over, did you enjoy that?

Dark as it was over Bill’s Mother’s we throughly enjoyed Talk Like A Brummie Day 2007 – we’ll see if it’s had any effect at all, or whether we’ll need to do it all again in 2008.

Thanks to everyone who took part, or even took an interest – if you’re interested in the Brummie dialect, please pop over to www.talklikeabrummie.co.uk where we’re going to try to build a wikipedia-style Brummie dictionary.

If you’ve got anything else to say about the day, feell free to comment here!

Central Tonight

I think we were on – I know I recorded a bit in the Bull Ring with them today, but I’ve been that busy I haven’t watched it. It should be on the interweb here soon.

They are about to do a bit about TLABD on the ONE Show, BBC One, 7pm (and we’re not on, but of course Adrian Chiles is so that’s okay)

Chamberlain Sq event postponed

Due to extreme weather – it’s absolutely bucketing it down in Brum – the Brummie celebration planned for Chamberlain Square this afternoon is off. The organisers tell me that it may happen later in the summer.

Don’t stop talking like a Brummie – you  might want to do most of it indoors tho’!

Talk Like A Brummie on the beach

In Chamberlain Square, from 12pm to 6pm on Friday people will be able to hear a panel of local experts, record their own favourite Brummie phrases and sayings for the BBC Big Screen and will have the chance to win special Birmingham prizes – some that money just can’t buy.

We’ll be there at the start to kick it off, and may hang around with our last few badges – if you’d like to grab one

Get down if you can even if it’s “looking a bit dark over Bill’s mother’s”.

EDIT: It’s been so dark over bill’s mother’s and everywhere that this has been postponed.
