My expat FIL was from Lancs. Good part is I learned how to make a decent pot
of tea. The bad is, I couldn't understand him half the time.
I also couldn't understand half the time the Newfie working for me years ago.
If you pronounce the 't' in Ottawa you aren't from here. 
And let's not even mention that Rhotic R that is missing in Burma in
some dialects.
