Would you credit it? Mrs Walker wakes up from a coma and finds she has lost her Geordie accent and gained a Rasta one. Reported today in the DT. I'm a pad's brat and have no real accent to speak of. However, I would have said that Geordie and Rasta sound pretty similar anyway... you try saying 'beer can' out loud.. does that not sound like something you have with eggs for breakfast? Does it not also sound the same in Geordie / Rasta?
