corrie versus eastenders
I have been watching eastenders for two days in a row now and i have noticed a couple of things - mind you I am only watching now towards the end of may but tomorrow I shall be venturing towards june of 2006.

1.On Coronation Street people use the term 'nawt' a lot but it is never used on EastEnders.
2.Similarly the expression 'awt' which of course is the antonym of nawt is used a lot in Corrie but not EastEnders.
3.Nobody on Coronation Street uses the expression "I don't give a monkey's..." but every other person on EE says it.
4.People on EastEnders talk about the North as though they were referring to, and I crap you not, a different universe.
5.Bar fights seem a lot more common on EastEnders though they seem more quickly broken up than on Corrie.


Any thoughts? Jim? Mark? People other than Jim and Mark?

Corrie is set in that weird universe called The North, it is true. Well, it's as northern as we get on telly these days. The slang and all that gubbins is quite different.

Nawt, I presume, means nought. Awt, I presume again, means 'Nowt'. It just means "nothing".
Nobody on EE swears, we've noticed. There's a "bastard" once every blue moon but that's about it. "I don't give a monkeys" is just a tame London-ish version of "I couldn't give a flying f***!"

On Corrie, most of the cast are quite old so fights last longer as they try to catch their breath more often ;)
