Dalesfolk Folk & Dialect Book: Yorkshire Dales & Fells

During a long career as a journalist in Yorkshire, the author has heard and often used words from the native speech of the Yorkshire Dales, much of it being in dialect.

It dates back to the Anglian incursions of well over a thousand years ago.

How many of these dialect words do you recognise?
