I've often questioned translations as to whether they are accurate or not. For eg., eyyagorraweeya ? is is translated as " Is your wife/ mother with you ? When actually the person is saying, " Have you got her with you " ? Please forgive Nottinghamese spelling, never could figure how it's supposed to be writ. B.

Let's all be honest, I've never heard people speak like that, especially these days,  and I bet most people haven't. It's all a fantasy, and is fictitious to say the least. Maybe a couple of generations ago, when people knew which class they were in, and made little or no effort to better themselves. Even people who live north of Redhill have finally learned how to string a coherent sentence together these days ! 

Grrrrr !

I know a couple who used to live in Bulwell, born and bred. They have lived in Sussex for about 34/5 years and both are still broad Bulwell slang, and never lost it, unless of course she's answering the phone then it's all Hyacinth Bucket if you please. Not a dialect, but slang. Another angle in the opposite direction, a cousin moved from Nottingham up to Whitley bay. Within less than three weeks she was talking broad Geordie, as though she'd been there all her life ! On a personal level, I've tried to adapt, I no longer say yo or code and try to pronounce my h's in the right place, primarily to be understood. (My family used to say I'd gone posh !!).

No, not posh, just plain normal !  I just can't grasp this desire in some folks to demean and denigrate themselves.

I’m off to Lincoln to collect my car. They’re all barmy there. It always has to go back after a service to sort out what they’ve cocked up at the service. Three years, three services three returns. Back to German cars I think!

Keeping conk was a regular term in Radford/Hyson Green for keeping a look out. Usually it was keeping conk for park keepers, coppers on the beat, teachers, spirit tapping or for another street nicking your bonfire rubbish.
