In an attempt to educate this ignorant Canuck, Yorkshire’s favourite poofs, Tazzy and Piggy, purchased this Yorkshire-English dictionary for me…
MJ: Let’s see if I’ve learned owt. (Let’s see if I’ve learned anything.)
Piggy: Aye, get agate. (Yes, go on then, get doing it.)
Tazzy: Best y’ do. (See that you do.)
MJ: Champion. (Excellent.)
Tazzy: By gum, we’ve supped sum stuff toneet. (Gawd, we have certainly drunk a lot tonight.) Ahm powfagged. (I’m very tired.)
Piggy: Ah-cud eet a'scabby-donkey tween tu Bre't-Vans. (I'm very hungry. I could eat a diseased donkey between two Bread Vans as a sandwich.)
MJ: Enough of this nonsense. Lesson over. Ahm still befuddled. (I’m still confused.) Boggled. (Mystified.) Flummoxed. (Bewildered.) Obviously I’ve learned nowt. (Obviously I’ve learned nothing.)
Tazzy: Flippin ‘eck, MJ! (exclamation of surprise.) You’re a barmpot. (You’re stupid.)
Piggy: Yes, MJ. You’re daft as a brush. (You’re stupid.) Yer arf baked. (You’re stupid.)
Tazzy: Yer gormless. (You're stupid.)
MJ: Gi’ over. (Stop it.) Any road (anyway) I’ll just have to make do with this handy Yorkshire Translator instead.
If anyone can assist with my Yorkshire Speak education, please submit your Yorkshire words and phrases in the comments section.
If not, then sling yer ‘ook. (If not then I suggest you go away immediately.)
