I've lost the Cockney accent that I've put on for 30 years. Can you help me find it?

I'll try and help.

Drop the letters "t" and "k" from the middle of words. A glottal stop is the linguistic term for dropping the sound of the letter "t" from the middle of a word. You can do the same with the letter "k" in the middle of a word, as well."Scottish," for instance, would be pronounced "Sco'ish.", "Blackboard" becomes "bla'board."

Drop the "h" from the beginning of words. The Cockney accent doesn't put emphasis on the "h" sound when it is the first letter in a word. So, for example, pronounce "herb" as "erb," "horse" as "orse," and "hopefully" as "opefully."

Don't pronounce the "r" at the end of words. Like most English accents, a Cockney accent drops the "r" from the end of a word. For example, "mother" becomes "mo-thah," and "car" becomes "cah."
