Wolfhound person BS: Extremely Irritating Geordie Jokes (60* d) RE: BS: Extremely Irritating Geordie Jokes 25 Jul 12


I live 3 miles from Ashington, right where pitmatic meets rural Northumbrian, which is a whole different accent / dialect again.

Back in the days when the village had a post office, listening to customers in the queue on pension collection day was an exercise in linguistics.

They speak the nearest to "Angle-ish" that there is anywhere in the UK, I think. Its not a dialect, it's a language. For dealings with outsiders, they switch to "modern" English, but do appreciate it if outsiders make the effort to choose their words carefully!
