Will Liverpool's Scouse accent ever change or disappear in the future?

Jump to last reply

In other words, will the accent of Liverpool, England ever change or disappear in the future? How would people from Liverpool possibly sound in the future (e.g. 10-25 years from now)? If it changes at all, how much would it change? How long would it take to change or disappear? Would migration of people not from Liverpool into the city change the scouse accent at all? If so, how much would the scouse accent change due to migration of "foreigners" into Liverpool?

I heard that the Beatles' and Cilla Black's scouse accents are slightly different than Steven Gerrard's and other younger people from Liverpool.

I know nobody knows for sure what will happen in the future. I just want to see people's predictions and opinions about the future of Liverpool's scouse accent.

The reason I ask is because I am really fascinated with the Liverpool accent.
