A place where salt and fresh water meet, brackish water. This is not a bay, estuaries do, however, exist on the edges of a bay. This is a delicate ecosystem that is used as a nursery for marine life. The estuary's appearance is a salt marsh
Look! There is an estuary on the edge of Mobile Bay!

The act of standing with arms aloft, in a confrontational manner, shouting "Come on then, Let's av it, Do you want some". The estuary haka is often done from the relative safety of behind a police cordon.
There is nothing quite as funny as the hate contorted face of a 19 year old, standing on a plastic seat ,doing an estuary haka at the opposition fans separated by nothing other than a wall, a 30 yard dmz, another wall, 300 stewards, 200 riot police and all the other supporters who are standing in front of him.

The dialect spoken by many people from the South and South East of England, including parts of London, although cockney and Received Pronounciation (the Queen's English) are far more common.

Received Pronounciation can be heard in the same areas as Estuary English, however RP tends to be spoken by the upper classes while Estuary English is spoken by the lower and working class.

Estuary English is also far more common in Younger people, with parents who have RP. So the decline in RP is likely to continue and be replaced with Estuary.

Many features of the Estuary accent include:
- The broad A. This includes pronouncing words such as 'fast > farst' and 'path > parth'

- Regular Glottal stops - This is not pronouncing the letter 'T' in most words. i.e water is pronounced war'er.

Th-Fronting - This is prouncing most words that start a 'Th' with an F. i.e 'Three > free', 'think > fink' and 'north > norf'. If 'th' is in the middle of a word, it is usually replaced with a 'V'. i.e 'other > ovver' 'southern > sovvern'

L-vocalisation - This is not pronouncing the letter 'L' in certain words and tends to be ended with a 'w' sound instead. i.e 'fall > faw' and 'milk > miwk'.

- H-Dropping - not pronouncing the letter 'H' at the start of most words. i.e 'here > ere' and 'hate > ate'

- G's are also not pronounced at the end of words. 'swimming > swimmin'

Other things are included in the accent other than just the pronounciation. This includes double negatives and finishing a lot of sentances with questions even ifthey are not asking a question. i.e I didn't mean to, did I? and 'we should shouldn't we?'
Received Pronounciation can be 'eard in the same areas as Estree Inglish, owever RP tends te be spoken by the upper clarses while Estuary English is spoken by the lower and workin clars.

An accent which is not considered RP or Cockney.
It is somewhat in between the two and features bits of both accents in some way or another.
Cockney & Estuary: 'will' is pronounced 'wiw'
RP & Estuary: 'hate' is pronounced with the 'h' and the 't'.
Estuary English: 'Hallway' is pronounced 'Haaw-way'

A hybrid of Recieved pronounciation(RP) and Southern English esp. London and surrounds. The speakers know exactly how to say the words correctly but choose not to do so,to sound more street cred. Quite often used by persons as Yuppies, or song artists Such as Lily Allen (who went to a public school) in "Smile"
