Nigel’s nephew Stephen has joined our team at Bullhouse Mill to help Elizabeth update the existing website and build an ecommerce site. His first job was to set up this blog site for us. Naturally, Stephen is an expert in computer programming languages and, having been born and raised in Hertfordshire, has an excellent grasp of the English language. Sadly though, he is finding it a struggle to learn Swedish to communicate with his girlfriend Sara, who is studying landscape architecture in Sweden. On top of that, he now has the added challenge of learning the Yorkshire dialect to talk with us here!
Nigel has given him a copy of ‘Basic Broad Yorkshire’ by Arnold Kellett*
"Tha munt fret thisen Stephen, tha’ll soin get thi ead raand it; tha’ll be reight." or … “Oroa dig inte Stephen, du kommer snart forsta. Det klarar du." or ... "Don’t worry Stephen, you’ll soon get your head around it. You’ll be fine!" Welcome to Yorkshire Stephen!
(Arnold Kellett was formerly head of modern languages at King James’s School, Knaresborough, where he has twice been mayor and was a well-known local historian. He was awarded a PhD in 1986 and the Yorkshire History Prize in 1988. Dr Kellett’s publications include ‘Historic Knaresborough’ (1991), and he was an editor of the ‘Transactions’ of the Yorkshire Dialect Society.
