Google voice search – Yorkshire fail

Random improvised northernisms inspired by T’Lorem (below) not well handled by Google Voice search.

For non (South) Yorkshire speakers, the search terms were:

  •  Gi’ o’er = Give over
  • Yer daft a’peth = You daft half penny’s worth
  • Ah’ll go tut’ foot of ahr stairs = I’ll go to the foot of our stairs (expression of surprise)
  • Purrit in’t’ coil oil = Put it in the coal hole
