Like all regions around the UK, we have our own dialect and there are certain phrases and things that we do which may only be understood by those who hail from the white rose county.
Here’s a list of things you might not understand if you’re not from the great region that is Yorkshire.
1. Are you in love?
Romantic or at home? For those from Yorkshire, this phrase will probably have been read and understood as somebody asking them if theyre at home. For others, it will mean being asked if they have romantic feelings for another person.
2. Our unique use of the letter T
When theres the word the involved we drop the word completely and substitute it for a t instead, e.g. going t shops, going on tinternet
3. Not everywhere is 'near Leeds'
For those from outside of Yorkshire, its not always easy to remember where exactly everything is, so many end up saying that were from near Leeds. Most of the time this isnt usually the case, but its generally easier to say you are.
4. The phrase Alright
A phrase that can be both a greeting and a question, so it takes experience to know which meaning it carries when somebody asks you it and you dont always know which one it is, making it even tricker for those from outside of the white county.
