Yorkshire Dialect

This is our local dialect. I speak it and understand it, but don't worry I can speak Queen's English too . Jack speaks broader than me, but I am sure you will understand most of what he says. When Nicholas was at nursery I was called into school.His teacher was concerned that all the children in his class were copying Nicholas and saying I [Ay] instead of yes. Now I thought this was fair grand and there wonrt nowt wrang in it. My reply was I [AY], I understand and will tell him. Haven't had time to tell time yet, that was 32 years ago I had the conversation with the teacher.
