And in Yorkshire it’s called a brew 🤣
Good to know!
Not in south yorkshire. Brews Scottish surely!
A brew is Lancashire. Yorkshire people 'mash' tea (as in beer making). e.g. 'put t'wood in t'oil, get coil in, mash some tey and sit thissen darn lad, and dun't be speykin' Lanky or I'll black thy lamps'.
Sorry - 'Close the door, bring some coal for the fire, make some tea and sit down young man, and don't be speaking like a Lancastrian or I will adminster a blow that will result in two blackened eyes'.
It was Frances123 who thought it was brew.
Yes, sorry. It was a generalised reply, purely for educational purposes...
I’m a comer-inner of 15 years. I’m going on what people in the valley and surrounding areas say and I’ve now picked up. I stand corrected. Do I dare mention Tea Cakes! That’s a debate that would beat Brexit 😂
Sorry. I wasn't being an @$$. I'm just a Yorkshire dialect nerd. I'd love an interesting chat about tea cakes but probably not here (unless they trigger af..) 🍪
Lots of discussions on FB "I Love Yorkshire" page.
Love it!! As a Canadian, born and bred, I find that it is our differences in using the same language that is so interesting.
Me too. My childhood dialect is English but pretty unintelligible to non-locals. I learned and used 'BBC English' for my work ( with academics and government) and now I've retired I'm reclaiming my rightful accent and dialect. Trouble is there aren't many others left who use it!
They do in West Yorkshire. Another saying is “I’ll mash the tea”. Can’t fathom that one out. 🤔
Mash means 'soak' or 'steep' in old English. A mash tun is the barrel that hops are soaked in in beer brewing.
Hoski- You have been granted the title of " honorary English women."You have passed the test- we (The UK) understand you will enjoy your new status. God bless.
Oh thankyou, I love this❤️

Hornchurch, Greater London
When I was a boy Hornchurch was Essex and still had an Aerodrome!
Not any more, it’s Greater London and I just bought and sold a property which cost me a lot more because of the convenience for commuters to get on the train to London. I learnt to drive practising at the aerodrome on the Rainham road, now they charge the earth to do that.
I did too when it was called the Cardrome. In those days I lived in Romford, Essex.
I was born in Barking even though my parents were in West Ham. Barking has been London for years now. Then I found out when I was born it was Essex. Nooooooooo! I’m not an Essex girl! Was only there for 9 days and then home to West Ham. Think I’ve earned earned my stripes.

Hurry! Another Canadian! Montreal was my beginning, so almost neighbours!
I grew up in Montreal also!
When and where? I mean, what vintage are you? I grew up in the TMR and went to Trafalgar School for Girls on Drummond Street. Also McGill. And the Ecole des Beaux Arts (briefly!) Then came to London to live the big adventure and have more or less been in the UK ever since.
Good to hear. I grew up in Verdun, undergraduate degree at Concordia and graduate degree at McMaster (1982). My wife and I were in the UK for the month of May and stayed in London for a week. Got a chance to connect with a McMaster Aluminus, and had a great time.

Gosh! Another Canadian ex-pat! Montreal was my beginning, then the great city of London, now Canterbury in Kent.
I've added the country to my profile now, it does help when reviewing member's posts as it takes out some of the guesswork of ascertaining which health system people are in.
Could we also add to the member profile whether people are single and rich?( yes I am joking....humour helping me through this at the moment)
Preferably with no known relatives?
Lol....I'm not greedy, happy to share....
