What does any "road" mean?

"Hey it don't matter any road"

Is this a Northern thing that means any way??

    If you talk proper like, you say any road instead of anyway.

    It can depends but 'ey up' tends to mean something along the lines of 'Hello'

    I always struggled with that one. :(

    On a slightly related note though, I have in the past spent several whole minutes arguing over whether 'book' and 'buck' have different pronunciations.

    Among other things, it'#s a greeting.

    Ey up duck.

    If you're a proper northerner they do.

    Book should have a long ew sound in it, rather than the short u sound.

    To illustrate: fook instead of fuck.

    Well in the case of proper northerners, obviously.

    I believe the conversation was with a southerner though, who put a hint of an 'a' sound in 'buck' and tried to tell me I didn't talk proper. :(

    I've seen a lot of American's using the word teh, fook, etc. Don't think they know what it means or where it comes from.

    btw, teh = the? As in.. going t'boozer?

    Back is not a paper thing with writing on it.

    Southern language is used by twunts.

    The Southern language is the proper way of speaking. The Northern way just sounds like noise ;).

    teh is 1337 for the.

    The ellided the in t'boozer is just a t sound (or, in many cases now, such as with my voice, a glottal stop), not a full word.

    North Yorkshire or Esturary English?

    Given that Zoe Ball speaks with the latter?

    I'd far rather have a voice/accent/dialect with character than a bland southern one. ;)
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,329 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I do have an accent :p.

    Anyroad is not a northern word, and if it is, we stole it 10 seconds after it was invented and put it to much better purpose as well as executing it more gracefully.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,329 The Mix Honorary Guru
    A boy i met this summer was a northener and some of the things he said i'd never even understood like the 'teh' and a few others i can't remember, now i get it! :rolleyes:
    i thought it was kinda sexy though..:D

    I fucking hate the way Northe... (eh... Southerners to me I guess!) talk.

    It seems only the poor, working class (usually neds) talk stereotypical Glaswegian/Scouse/whatever, yet the Northerners actually seem to be proud of their illiteracy :confused:

    What's the deal? It's just fucking annoying!

    Ned = townie.

    Glasgow invented the little fuckers, we get to name them. Seriously, is there any need for the English having 2834982 shit names for them? ;[
