    Or the people who remove the R from the end of words. They call those people "English".

    I don't know if this occurs in British English as well, but Australians remove the rhotic (?) R from the end of sentences, and stuff it in between a word ending with an R sound, and a word starting with a vowel sound (excluding y)

    e.g. where / are / you = wherrah you
    I / have / a / sore / arse = I have a sorrarse
