A Conversation for Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Tyne and Wear, UK
Gargoyle Started conversation Apr 9, 2000
Strictly speaking its a dialect not an accent, or so I'm told by more intellectual (and bothered) mates. Apparently it has connections with the older Scandinavian languages.
Some translations (feel free to add others)
gannin yerm/hyerm going home (spelling these things is a nightmare)
Haway Come on
Canny A very diificult one as it depends on context and can mean anything.
Also we tend to speak of ourselves in the plural (us instead of me/I).
There is much more I could add, but its late and the baby (babby) is finally asleep, so I'm going.
