Collins Chelp and Chunter: How to Talk Tyke (Hardcover)
by Ian McMillan (Author)
Publisher: Collins; illustrated edition  (2007)
This fun introduction to the Yorkshire dialect is a perfect buy for anyone who wants to learn to talk Tyke. With full-colour illustrations throughout by Alex Collier, it makes a light-hearted and colourful guide. From the literary landscapes of the Brontes' moors and James Herriot's dales, to the contemporary soundscapes of the Arctic Monkeys, Yorkshire has always been about more than stereotypical images of flat caps and whippets. The rich culture of Yorkshire is reflected in its dialect (down the pub, in the market, at work), and this book is essential for anyone with even a passing interest in the area, or language in general. Discover the origins of many well-known phrases, and learn a few more with this humorous and insightful examination of the Tyke dialect. Written with Barnsley FC's poet in residence, Ian McMillan, Collins Chelp and Chunter: How to Talk Tyke has poems in Tyke throughout, and is fully illustrated by Alex Collier.
