Demolition call

Demolition call
Activity True-False
Activity True-False

A little girl from Dublin calls the demolition company and asks them if they can blow up her school. Really funny phone prank.

The transcription printed on the video is not too accurate so I made my own transcription for the Transcript box here to the right. They have a strong Irish accent with colloquialisms so I'm not 100% sure of everything, but it's better that what you can see on the video.

Notice how the phonetics and the intonation differs from the standard RP in England (see how she pronounces "Dublin"? sounds more like /duplɪn/ than the standard /dʌblɪn/ ) and makes it sound a bit similar to Scottish.
