Which begs the question, would Dyl be able to understand Provost?

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/s...re/3724110.stm

Quote:
A group of foreign doctors left baffled by South Yorkshire slang are being taught the local dialect so they know when their patients feel "champion".

The seven Austrians are fluent English speakers but were left confused by patients feeling "jiggered" or "manky".

But now doctor-patient relations in Barnsley and Doncaster have improved after the local NHS trust compiled a special Yorkshire language guide.

Health officials turned to Austria 18 months ago to tackle a GP shortage.

The towns' new GPs had to pass an English test before taking up their new posts - but examiners did not include a section on local dialects.

Funny how the whole world speaks (some sort of) english, but the worst english dialects are in england itself.

I've met Beta1 before...he had no problem understanding me. Nor have Europeans...although I can't say the same for North Americans, which is odd considering they are native speakers of the language...

It's the only way to cure an ailment in Yorkshire is sticking your hand up the cow's arse...even if the problem isn't with the cow...
