Description

A Cockney accent is one of the many British dialects, and is commonly associated with the East End of London. If you want to try out a Cockney accent, you only need to make a few simple changes, no matter where you’re from! 

Why not try Cockney Rhyming Slang!

Cockney rhyming slang was first used by cockneys in the East End of London. It is now understood widely in London and throughout Britain. Market traders, costermongers and street hawkers invented it in London in the 1840s and it was designed to disguise or code what was being said from passers-by or law enforcement.

Although mainly associated with the East End of London, today Cockney rhyming slang phrases have entered the British Lexicon and many are still used in London and indeed all around Britain.

How does Cockney rhyming slang work?

Cockney rhyming slang phrases are derived from taking an expression, which rhymes with a word, and then using that expression instead of the word. For example, the word “look” rhymes with “butcher’s hook”. So you won’t find too many Londoners having a “butcher’s hook” at this site, but you might find a few having a “butcher’s”.

What is a Cockney?

A true Cockney is someone born within the sound of Bow Bells. (St Mary-le-Bow Church in Cheapside, London).

However the term Cockney is now loosely applied to many born outside this area as long as they have a “Cockney” accent or a Cockney heritage.
