Tame's movin wey tu farst 'nd people a aegin wey tu quickly. Wern Rose torld meh she wars twinty fave, are jurts courdn't belief eh.

I'm trying my best to showcase some kind of an accent in this piece of writing. Does it come through to you as an accent or just severe dislexia? Please let me know and if you can guess which accent this is, it would be even better (especially if you get it right) Any tips on how to improve would be more than appreciated, thank you :D

Yeah, it sounds kind of cockney. It's pretty good if that's the accent you were going for!

Hahah yay!! that's the kind of accent I was actually going for and thank you. I was trying to get it as close to the Hairy Bikers' accent as i possibly could XD

Maybe tone it down just a bit so not EVERY word is changed. I can say that you've DEFINATELY captured the accent. Some things are a bit iffy: "movin, tu, meh, twinty fave, jurts, eh."

An idea for "I" could be "Ah" instead...

But yeah, interesting! Good luck!
