Suffolk born and bred and the only word I understand is stay. Veronica
Really? How strange - makes perfect sense to me and my BiL could even do the right accent.
That's made me chuckle. I think an Essex one would have 'innit' every couple of words and, maybe, a reference to 'Sarfend'!xx
There should be one of these made for every part of the country!The packed beaches at Sarfend as seen on TV were so busy. I sharn't (to rhyme with marn't above!) be rushing to a beach this weekend either.
Nor I. Sarfend and its like can wait!xx
I'm struggling a bit with the last bit but I certainly get the key message and wish Mr and Mrs General Public would too.
Hold You Hard - meaning wait, stay there, hang on!
I understood it all. Maybe it's the Yorkshire in me. The last bit I had to read a couple of times, but I think that's because there is a question mark missing, or have I got it wrong?
I lived in Suffolk many years ago and read it as "Hold you hard".
No question mark Joan. As Ann says it says Hold you hard = wait = hang on= don't be hasty
OOps, I thought it meant Had you heard?
Hold yew hard in Norfolk means wait.
Exactly. Wait or hang on or don't be in a hurry.Can you do a Norfolk version of the whole thing?
Brilliant, they should make one for every county of England, although I dread to think what the Manchester/Lancashire one would read like!!
Haha, that is gorgeous. I got it except for the last bit, and reading the comments that makes sense now too :)
The Suffolk dialect is so precious to me. Grew up hearing it spoken and makes me remember all the lovely old people in our village who outsiders could barely understand. You will probably think me a complete nutcase but when I return to England and hear the Suffolk accent for the first time I start crying. I think it is something to do with being amongst one's own kind.
Love it.My dad, had he still been with us, would have come up with something from old Dartymoor, I am sure.
Didn't get the bottom one, but have read your answer in the comments.
