  • Lancashier Dialect Sara Albornoz Gallegos Paradigmas Linguisticos
  • Lancashier Dialect
    • Also known as “ Lanky ” Dialect refers to the vernacular speech in Lancashire
    • Within historic Lancashire are dialects belonging to two groups of English dialects: West Midland in the south and Northern in the north
  • Lancashier Dialect
    • Lacashire borned during the Industrial Revolution
    •   Lancashire dialect is now much less common than it once was, but it is not yet extinct
  • Lancashier Dialect
    • Grammatical and phonological features
    • Definite article reduction:  The  is shortened to  t  or glottalled
    • In some words with RP /oʊ /, a sound more like [ɔɪ] may be used, for example, "hole" is pronounced [hɔɪl] "hoil"
    • In areas that border Yorkshire, it is more likely for  there, where, swear , etc. to be pronounced with /ɪə/, to rhyme with "here"
    • Words that end -ight often change so that they end /iː /. For example  light, night, right, sight  become  leet, neet, reet, seet
    • The word  self  is reduced to  sen  or  sel , depending on the part of Lancashire.
  • Lancashier Dialect
    • The third person feminine ( she ) appears to be rendered as "'er" ( her ) but is in fact an Old English relic which dialect poets of the 19th century
    • In the past "open" would have become "oppen", "spoken" becomes "spokken", "broken" becomes "brokken", etc but these are now uncommon amongst younger generations. They are still fairly common in West Yorkshire.
    • Traditionally, a /t/ was replaced with an /r /; for example, "I'm gerring berrer", "a lorra laughs". Amongst the younger generation, it is much more common to replace /t/ with a glottal stop [ʔ].
    • Rather than a mixed use of  was  and  were   such as occurs in Standard English, Lancashire dialects tend to use only one of the words and employ it in all cases . The west coast of Lancashire always uses  was , the rest of the county always using  were .
    • Use of a   z  sound for an  s   as in  bus  pronounced  buzz  
  • Lancashier Dialect [uːər] /ʊə/ as in 'cure' [ʏː] (South) or [uː] (North) /uː/ as in 'boo' [ʊ] /ʌ/ as in 'bud' [oː] /əʊ/ as in 'boat' [ɑː] (South), [aɪ] (North) /aɪ/ as in 'bide' [ɛr] /eə/ as in 'bear' [eː] /eɪ/ as in 'bay' [ʌʏ], [aː] or /aʊ/ /aʊ/ as in 'house' [aːr] /ɑː/ as in 'bard' [a] /æ/ as in 'bad' Lancashire RP English
  • Lancashier Dialect
    • Lancashire Culture
    • Films from the early part of the 20th century often contain Lancashire dialect: the film-makers George Formby, Gracie Fields and Frank Randle are notable examples
    • Related to music the band the Lancashire Hotpots originate from St Helens, and popularise dialect in their humorous songs. The folk song "Poverty Knock" is written to the tune of a Lancashire accent.
