Yorkshire

I'm trying to learn...............Yorkshire. So far, no good. I will try to write a paragraph right now:

I m trying to learn a bit o' Yorkshire, but I'm only just starting to speak i'. I have my doubts, but I hope tha' has same advice for me. I love cats an that's th' reason I am here, and th' reason tha'rt here. Of course, I can't speak it the moment I try, but th' accent and th' ways, and OH! Ugh! I don't even know the word for some words. Any advice tha' would give me is to be appreciated!

That's 'Farmer Speak' what you typed.

There are many different accents and variations of English words and Pronunciations across Yorkshire.

This may be of some help,

As someone from Yorkshire and born here your post made me smile. I certainly don't talk like that!

Buy the James Herriot DVDs and you will get a fair sample of broad Yorkshire dialect. The one thing I do seem to hear all over Yorkshire is the uh sound being pronounced as a short oo. So much will become mooch, but with a very short oo.

I love Yorkshire, and the various accents and dialects. Don't worry, you will learn to understand it soon enough, I am from the Netherlands, and only visit Yorkshire on holidays every now and then, and I can, by now, understand most of it.
