I'm setting my new novel in a fantasy world which is not unlike our own; It has towns and cities, roads, cars, shops, restaurants, etc. - basically all our infrastructure. The thing that's different in this world has magic, and most of the machinery is powered by it. That's a brief description of it, but the question I would like to ask is can you, or how can you implement a regional dialect in a fictional kingdom? Register to remove this ad The Kingdom of "Erdwaerde" the fictional country where I set it could be likened to England. This is all fine, but I would like one of my characters to have a regional dialect. I would like her to have a Geordie accent (one specific to the city of Newcastle) but because my story is set in a fictional kingdom in which Newcastle doesn't exist, how can I portray this? If not with this particular accent, is it possible with any? In short, how do you describe an accent without mentioning a place?
