Scouse is a linguistic variety defined variously by the various linguistic researchers. It has been the central theme of a numerous research papers for years. As for its simplified definition, it can be described as a semantic phenomenon, i.e. A dialect which has its own traits. These features make it look and sound quite unique and different from other, surrounding dialects. Its phonological features give this linguistic variety a special shape and hence affect its distinguished nature. The main purpose of this research paper lies in the attempt to discover and clarify the complex linguistic nature of this accent by stating the accompanying examples from the language spoken in present-day Liverpool. On pages below, one can also find the most important events as regarding to the historical background of Liverpool as quite developed city nowadays. The reasons and the key dates are also enlisted in order to connect the dots presenting development of the language and the significant events more easily and with understanding. The setting of Liverpool with its inhabitants and in-migrants, migrations in general, has a huge part in this long-term process.
