I have watched a few of DB's videos and can understand most of what He says. What I don't understand is "twastard." Is this His name for His tools, neighbors, or wife? :) Seems to be a common word so cannot be cussing!  :lol: I hope He does His machining to relieve stress!

It was my wife who thought up the name
She said I am worse than a "Bastard" but not quite a "Twat"
Hence the name "Twastard"

Actually,  you're all wrong.

It isn't an accent,  it's a dialect.

An accent is when people from different parts say the same standard English but you can tell they are from different parts of the country.

A dialect is when people have local words and expressions  that aren't use (generally) elsewhere.

I am most fortunate to have married a wonderful East Anglia Lass from Isleham, Cambs. She had an uncle and a brother-in-law that were Yorkshire men. I enjoyed many a pint or Gill of malt with both, and became very accustom to their accent. It amazed me how well I understood them when we had a snoot full! I have no problem understanding John... All the best, Mate!

They have windows in Wales ??????????????    :lol:

Seriously though windows in the modern sense (fenestration) probably only got to Wales (and much of Great Britain) in Roman times, with a second wave when the Normans built castles everywhere, and it's probably from that Norman connection that the Fenestr of Welsh originated.

From what I remember from my school days in Wales, Fenestr ( window, latin fenstra) llyfir (book leber) and arian (silver or money latin argentum) were words that came from the Romans. Llong from the Viking long boats is a ship.

These were taught in Welsh lessons, I have subsequently found that Arian is from  Proto-Indo-European *h₂erg- (“to shine”) and that unlike what we were taught in school,Perhaps borrowed from French, the Welsh word for window is ffenestr.

So, these are bits of fairly useless partially accurate information that I remember from those endless obligatory Welsh lessons in the 1960's! Google is your friend!
