Another departure:  Some (many) years ago  a book was written, I’ll find the author’ s name one of these days. which spoke about the way people from Bristol speak.

One of the curiosities of the Bristol dialect is the propensity of Bristolians to add an “l” to a final “a” in place of a glottal stop. This curious fact has led me to this post in light of the pandemic now about us;  Has anybody from Bristol  heard the word Coronavirus pronounced “coronalvirus?

Note: The title of this post is the aforementioned title of the book. It translates as, The correct way to speak  Bristol.
