Welcome
The Yorkshire dialect can be traced back to invaders who crossed the North Sea in the Fifth Century and who left behind a rich language full of words that had Norse and Danish origins.

Dales people had a particularly dialect-filled speech that included both verbs and nouns peculiar to the district in which they lived.

Here are just a few examples:

Skep
basket

Tup
male sheep

Laithe
barn

Gripe
muck-fork

Dowly
sad

Nithered
cold, shivery

Twined
to be upset

Thoil
to begrudge

Wick
lively

Sneck
Door-catch;

Slape
slippery

and.......

T’ardest wark is doin’ nowt.      
Tha’s nithered and twined...
