Re: Do speakers use dialect when you are a speaker of the standard language?
When I was young I lived in Eastbourne on the South coast of England, and moved up North when I was 9. My accent when I moved up here was very Southern, so I had to adopt a Northern accent, with much trauma and being ostracised because of my accent. Now I have a slight Northern accent, but not the accent of the region where I live, so here I'm looked at as a Southerner, and when I go there to visit family I am looked at as a Northerner. I don't really fit in either place with my accent, but I like it that way. It is normal to adpot the accent of where you live as an overriding human need is to be accepted amongst your peers.
Imagine all the people, living life in peace, you may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one!
