Learn to talk "Tyke" with this accessible guidebook to the Yorkshire tongue. From the literary landscapes of the Brontës' moors and James Herriot's dales to the contemporary soundscapes of the Arctic Monkeys, Yorkshire has always been about more than stereotypical images of flat caps and whippets. The rich culture of the town is reflected in its dialect (down the pub, in the market, at work), and this reference is essential for anyone with even a passing interest in the area or language in general. Discover the origins of many well-known phrases and learn a few more with this humorous and insightful examination of the Tyke dialect.
