I love my accent so much sometimes, but it can be a pain when explaining things…
Asta? : Have you?
Cheers love: Thank you
Love: A greeting ("How have you been holdin’ up love?) Anyone can be called this, especially in Pub’s. It’s a polite greeting so a male can call it a male or a female can call it a female, its just a thing around here.
Step back: Back down
Mardy: (I was so shocked when people didn’t know what this meant) Moody/Sulky
Sound: That’s cool (“She’s gone to the toilet” Sound mate/Love
Alreyt? : How have you been holding up?
Boss: Slang for friend sometimes
Duck : (Basically the same as Love)
Be reyt: This is the most popular thing you will hear someone from Yorkshire say, No matter how bad the situation is the most common answer will be Be reyt it means It will be fine
Nesh: Cold (It’s a bit nesh in here)
Gi’ore: Stop it!
Nah then: It’s something we say to start of a conversation (Nah then, How have you been?)
Nannan: Grandma (Some people really didn’t know this)
Dahn: Down (Get dahn here NOW)
Tea: Dinner (Not the drink, though i do love a nice cuppa, but Tea also means “What’s for tea then ma?”)
Lass: A female
Lad: A male or female
But that’s British slang
I mean, i know a lot more but i’m not one for writing dictionary’s but i do understand a LOT of northern accents
(I’ll be adding onto this haha)
If you ever need help with words from the UK you just don’t get or the debates (Like What ever a Breadcake,Teacake,Roll,Bap,muffin Or whatever) Just honestly ask me, i know so much
