    I know several people that say "warsh," and even one lady that said "reench," when she meant "rinse."

    Well I have plenty of Northern (England) relatives (Yorkshire) and will use a few manners of speech.

    nowt - nothing - "there's nowt on [tele (TV)]"
    aut ("out") - anything - "doh won aut" - I don't want anything
    to't ("tut") - to the - "goin' tut shops"
    on't - on the - you can get them on't tinternet

    There's plenty more I'll edit in when I can think of them.

    -Yes, my dear.

    I was never around people who said "warsh" growing up, but I've heard it a bit. Angelo Cataldi on WIP pronounces it that way, but he is not a native Philadelphian. He's from Rhode Island, and it's apparently quite common up there, too.
