A lot of it is slang, but some are: coin, change - quenig (kenig) magazine - magasín (magasin) group, gang - riñion (rhyniwn) England - sasin (Saesein) darn! - aldiól! (a'll diawl) Chick, Woman - bel (bel) "Sasin" is a kind of odd case. Montreianos should have had no problems with the "ei", but it became pronounced as /i/
