Yorkshire dialect

Over the years that I have been writing on this journal every now and then I have written about the Yorkshire accent. People have often asked me to do a voice recording so they can hear what my accent sounds like. Even though all Yorkshire accents sound very similar, a Yorkshire person would be able to tell in which actual city in Yorkshire someone lives from the slight differences.

I found this video a few years ago but it's doing the rounds again at the moment. This little girl is from Sheffield. I don't think I'm quite as broad as her or her uncle but to a person from outside Yorkshire I probably sound just like her!!
