View topic - Regional Dialects
They tried, but it wasn't long before I heard two boys arguing, saying things like:
「せんでくれませんか。」 and 「いやだでございます。」

not to get off topic, but in movies and media, what kind of japanese is used? say like that movie 'howl's moving castle' .. what japanese were they speaking?
That's not a movie. That's anime. You should know by now that Anime doesn't use normal speaking patterns
In REAL movies (i.e. with real people) they speak the way their characters are supposed to, just like in English (SURPRISE!).
In American movies, when someone is supposed to be from the south, they speak with a southern accent.
Just the same, in Japanese movies if someone is supposed to be from Osaka, they speak with an Osaka accent.
Most of the movies are set in Tokyo, so most of the movies use Tokyo dialect.
