I read this article with interest, enjoying the history and the legend. Perhaps some day I can visit that island first instead of virtually. Would too that I could learn that lovely accent!

1) A hard "t" becomes a "th" if it follows a vowel, hence "Computers" becomes "computhers".
2) A "th" becomes "t", especially if it starts a word hence "three" becomes "tree".
3) "Your" becomes "yer"
4) "Yes" becomes "yer"

Hope this helps.....
