I've not either. There's not many words where the accent is clear in text form. There are lots of words and phrases with can be used which are more unique to the region (although a fair amount of them I assume have the same meaning on Merseyside or Yorkshire so not exclusively Mancunian perhaps) like "our kid" (our brother) and "Me mam" (My mother).
Fuck your tea room.

All scally Mancs start sentences with "ee ar yo", something I haven't come across in other areas.

That's what this thread made me think of.
