    I'd also like to know what people call a small pathway that goes between houses linking streets together. I'd call it a guinnel, but I think that's quite local.
    we have a really specific notts name for it but i totally cant remember it at the minute. its not a word i ever use i just say alley.

    sorry to post again but for words may I nominate:

    Rainworth

    Southwell

    both places in notts


    and for slang: what (if anything) you say to people as a term of affection or who you dont really know like "thanks duck" to a lady in a shop or "thanks my dear" (does anyone say that?) or whatever

    and its me again nominating for slang: what word do you use to describe insulting or belittling someone

    oh yeah i would say "s'not " too i forgot that.

    Just wondering about the "n" thing - i live in mansfield which is pretty cl;ose to doincaster relatively and i say it "donn-cass-ta".. and so does everyone else i know... the only thing i can think is if you mean like do-glottalstop-casta which i spose i say and othe people i know say... just mentally i think of it as an n... !

    or do "geniune northeners" completely miss out the n?
