O R *could* stand for other things too.
I attended a HOTS (History of Tetbury Society)
Meeting and the speaker was discussing the
Gloucestershire accent vis a vis the Wilts one
and I, in the question time, after, referred to
the Welsh habit of adding "look you!" at the end of censuses.
Am I right in thinking that the Bristolian accent
differs from the Gloucrestershire one?
The Oxford accent differs markedly from the Oxfordshire one.
O R could stand for Orfully Rrough of course! <vbg>
