Over here Mary does NOT rhym with ferry.
Mary, fairy, wary, hairy all rhyme
merry, ferry, kerry, berry all rhyme
One is AIR the other is ERR
I have a friend from Rochdale who could make them
all rhyme, and more besides. He does this little
routine about Terry from Bury* who went for a
curry with Barry in his lorry and went on the
*usually pronounced berry. All vowels except y
are pronounced a bit like u as in flurry, but not
quite, it's a Rochdale thing.
He also does a wicked impersonation of Lisa
Stansfield, a popstar from Rochdale.
.......... almost everyone is boring some kind of reader
