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.
