English - Yorkshire (Barnsley) Dialect
I have seen posts like this before and have been meaning to make one myself for some time now. The purpose of it is to show some of the main differences in the way that we speak in Barnsley (Yorkshire, North England) to standard English.
'The' - We never say 'the' in colloquial speech. Instead we replace it with a glottal stop. This is often written as t' but leads to outsiders thinking thinking we actually pronounce the 't'.
Thar/thee - 'Thar' is the informal singular 'you' but is slowly falling out of use. 'Thee' is the accusative form of 'thar'. It also takes the same verb conjugations as he/she/it. E.g, Tha drinks (You drink)
Us/our - Instead of saying 'our' we say 'us'. 'Our' is only used as the stressed form of 'us'. E.g, She's got us money (She's got our money).
Was/were - We never use the word 'was' but instead say 'woh' or 'were' for stress.
While - We use 'while' in place of 'until'. E.g, I wain't be back while 12 (I won't be back until 12).
Allus - Always
Bairn - Child (compare to Danish 'barn')
Bart - Without
Bell - Call (compare to Dutch 'bellen')
Eyup - Hello/Hi
Gi - Give
Laik - Play (compare to Danish 'lege')
Misen/Thisen etc - Myself/Yourself etc
Nowt - Nothing
Owt - Anything
Snap - Food
Summat - Something
Sup - Drink
Ta - Thanks (compare to Danish 'tak')
Thine - Yours (informal singular)
Youngen - Child (compare to Dutch 'jongen')
There are many more that I will add when I think of them!
Bairn, gie, ta - three words we use in Ayrshire too. :) There's probably more similarities. I'd love to learn a lot more of the various dialects of Britain and how they interlink.
We use 'ta' and occasionally 'youngen' down south in Hampshire/Dorset but it's interesting to see how much is different, wow!
We use ta here in central Scotland too. In fact, it's my go-to form of casual thanks. :P
Ta is very common in London too, especially where I originate from. A lot of cockneys use it and when speaking to babies, to teach them, a lot of parents often refer to "ta" as a simple way of teaching them to say thank you. I know this as my mother has done it with all six of her children, as did my nan before her, and my sister's have used it with my nephews and nieces.
I'm also from Yorkshire, over in Hull. I couldn't make a list like this as I don't really like/use dialect words so I don't really know them all. That big list at the end has very similar words though, like 'owt' and 'nowt' (I think most of the north uses those don't they?). A big similarity with your list is that here you often here 'Bain' (without the r) to mean child, that is one of our main dialect words. I thought that was just a Hull thing, it suprising to me that other places say something similar.
It's a northern universal I guess, unless anyone knows different. I wonder how far south down bairn for baby goes? And how far outside Hull bain lasts before it becomes bairn.
