- We can order this from the publisher
Gain an insight into the English language via one of the UK's richest dialects: Geordie.
From George Stephenson to The Animals to Viz, the North East has long had a successful creative culture, developing alongside its industrial history.
Newcastle in particular has successfully reinvented itself as a centre of the arts, while still maintaining its own regional identity. This book is the definitive guide to the most distinctive element of that identity: the Geordie dialect.
This book is a must for anyone with even a passing interest in the language of the North East, and also provides a thorough examination of the general state of English, from the traditional wit and wisdom of the Geordie perspective.
