Cockney's done a runner

Here's a link to Ant Heald's blog where he covers the recent story about the Cockney accent dying out. Well, it's not really a recent story, more the latest instalment in a much longer narrative of dialect levelling and accent change, but it's interesting stuff none the less. And as Ant's covered it I don't have to.

Got in ahead of you: I think that's a first! Are they working you too hard down at UCL?

I'm losing my edge :-(

It's not UCL so much as the A level marking at the moment. Urghhhh. It's taking a while...
