Ashingtonese: Part 2.


I decided to find a few more examples of the Ashington dialect I came across the above from the free magazine newcastle stuff. They also have some more examples on their website here. For those of you wanting to really learn the lingo, they even have a book.

All this got me thinking, we're from a fairly wide geographical area, does anyone else have any strange pronunciations or uses of words? Im sure Jim(1) must, plenty of druidic sayings for around the sacrifice, I mean campfire. But what does everyone else have? I know Ruth pronounces no like an Aussie (think Noi), despite coming from Chester, but what about the rest of you.

In the (east?) midlands a bread roll is usually called a cob. That's the only one that really springs to mind, because I had a couple of uncomfortable moments in the bakery up here

Also after working in the community for so long Gemma can tell the difference between pitmatic, mackem and geordie. I haven't the faintest idea how she does it. They sound like "northern", "northern" and "northern" to me

Wouldn't an Aussie say nao rather than noi/noy? I think noy/noi is north-west England, reflecting an Irish heritage. Eh-up me duck = hello/how are you,
again cob=bun/roll
and frit = frightened ("I was right frit" = "I was very frightened")
Any more from Leicestershire? Hmmm. Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/East_Midlands_English) reminded me of a advert I heard on Leicester Sound a few years back: "Get y'sin down to Pro-Trade" where y'sin means yourself and pro-trade sell things to plumbers, builders etc, and not prostitutes.
