The ‘sheer’/’shuhh’ debate rages on:

  • It seems to be generally a product of the north/south divide, with more southern people saying ‘sheer’ and northerners saying ‘shuhh’.
  • The midlands are a foggy gray area mixture, but from the responses we’re getting, it looks like the east mids say ‘sheer’ and the west ‘shuhh’ (eg Gloucester-shuhh)
  • Berkshire (Berk-shuhh) is a grey area too, although nobody’s quite certain how the ‘Berks’ part is supposed to be pronounced either. Britain is excellent at place names.
  • Geordies are in a whole league of their own, pronouncing it ‘sha’.
  • If you’re from Aberdeen, there’s a chance you say ‘shy-er’, as in ‘the place Hobbits come from’. The jury’s out on the rest of Scotland, although apparently it’s more likely to be ‘shurr’.
  • There are also a few other people out there who say ‘shire’ in the Hobbity way, but this is an exception rather than being true for any other specific location.
  • There are, obviously, exceptions to all these rules (based on, for example, where your parents grew up, etc.) but they’re a pretty good general outline.
  • There’s a school of thought which says you should pronounce northern counties as ‘shuhh’ and southern as ‘sheer’, as a local speaker would. I like this because it pleases everybody and avoids debate.
  • If you’re from Northern Ireland, all your counties start with the word ‘County’ and everything is much easier for you.

I’ll update this post if/when more information becomes available.

We get really hung up on regional accents on this blog, huh. More British linguistic studies to follow, I’m sure!
