    There are also separate subjects here of Diction and Grammar*, which can collide hilariously with Accent.

    D4 accent + bad diction = lazy spoilt celtic cub or drunk person
    D4 Accent + bad grammar = Fur coat / no Knickers, Husband in NAMA (this tends to be a female thing)

    Dub accent, perfect diction & grammar = either a "real dub" (and lovely to listen to, typically a bloke in his 60's + ) or a careerist politician trying to affect some working class (votes). Possibly SF wannabe or present TD trying to forget teenage years in rugby clubs...

    Dub accent and bad grammar, but in a suit/ nice car = mate of Bertie's, on way to Quango.


    * We are talking about really glaring grammar issues.

    So you are class conscious? What accent do All toilet cleaners and bin men speak with? What accent do the vast majority of Dublin politicians, celebrities, and journalists speak with? There are exceptions to the latter, but not to the former. Pity and feelings have nothing got to do with it. We know who's at the very bottom of the ladder, do you know your place on the ladder? Do you define your own class consciousness, through language, or does someone else define it on your behalf, because of your accent? What's an 'ordinary Dub?' Someone who sings ballads in the Dubliners, or follows the Grab All Association, a toilet cleaner, or a bin man? I'm certainly not looking down my nose on those occupations, if that's what you're thinking. That's just how I would define, my class consciousness.

    Never said you were looking down so relax. My point is that bin men/cleaners etc are working class and don't speak with a skanger accent.
    After that I don't feel particularly class conscious as I see the role of a bin man being probably more benefical to society than that of a lawyer or accountant. Also I am acutely aware that men with deefer accents in Louis cope land suits did more damage to this country than all the skanger a who ever lived.

    Could people post a clip of what they think to be a D4/Dort accent? Are we talking Miriam O'Callaghan?

    Yeah, that's an abomination, all right. I'm not sure there are that many adults who talk like your man Ivor, though.
