Sailor Ron Is Geordie a separate language? (120* d) RE: Is Geordie a separate language? 10 Mar 11


aAl this duiscusion about changes of accent/dialect over very short distances remindes me of Harney Kershaw, the great Lancashire dialect poet. Once when asked how many Lancashire dialects there were, he replied "Four", quite perplexed at this the questioner said " Only four in the whole of Lancashire?". "Ee sorry lad I thowt thi meant in Rochdale"!
