Origins Of The Scouse Accent

The distinctiveness of the Scouse accent was first recognised in 1890.
The ‘Scouse’ accent is named after a stew which was commonly eaten by sailors and those without much money, as it was a cheap yet filling meal.
As Liverpool developed as a port, particularly trading with Ireland, it became a ‘melting pot’ of accents and dialects.
There was a particular influence from Welsh and Irish migrants that helped develop the Scouse accent.
Alan Crosby suggested that the word ‘Scouse’ only became nationally known due to the programme Till Death Do Us Part, which featured a Liverpudlian socialist, starting in 1965.
Gerald Knowles, a linguist has suggested that the nasal sounding accent was influenced by the poor health of the 19th century.
This was a period when many people had a prevalent cold, often long lasting, consequently talking in a nasally manner.
He further suggests that this accent became the norm, with younger generations then copying, despite the lack of an actual cold.
