    *Talking to my flatmate about my brother's hand (he broke it last week)*

    Flatmate: Is he having a pot on his hand?
    Me: A what?
    Flatmate: A pot
    Me: What's that?
    Flatmate: You put it on your arm
    Me: Huh? Do you mean a cast?
    Flatmate: Don't you call it a pot?

    I have reached the conclusion that NHS Yorkshire must be experiencing serious cuttbacks

    Same with the whole 'breadcake' vs. 'bread roll' debate.

    You northerners really do flummox me sometimes

    I've never heard it referred to as a pot before. I live near Manchester. Before clicking on this thread, I wasn't even sure what "cast" it would be e.g. as in the actors/actresses for something or cast in the sense you are talking about.

    An orphopedic cast if that's the correct term?

    I think it might be a Yorkshire thing!

    I would do if it was old school plaster of paris and pot like... but casts usually seem to be made out of high tech glass reinforced plastic now, calling one of those 'pot' wouldn't seem apt.

    A pot is something that holds a plant, or noodles, or soup, or tea, or gold under the rainbow.
    Not hands.

    I love this thread! My boyfriend is from West Yorkshire and we have had that exact discussion! I'm from Surrey and had never heard the term before chatting to him. And the bread cake/bread roll debate too. I think this thread has made my day! Ha!

    It's "cast", and "bread roll"

    And "bath" is pronounced "barth", not "bahth", dammit. :lol:

    And anyone who says there is a wrong and a right way to pronounce, bath, grass etc has obviously never heard of the words: accent and dialect.

    I don't see a 'z' in the word "boys" but it's still pronounced "boyz". :awesome:

    Since meeting my Northern boyfriend (West Yorks) I have been in a constant bread roll/ break cake/ tea cake/ cob/ butty argument.

    It went too far when he got his mum to call me and explain to me I'm wrong for thinking tea cakes have raisins, are toasted and served with butter in charming tea shops on posh high streets in the South.

    While I know I'm exaggerating with my above description, it annoys me about how passionate he is that bread rolls are tea cakes, casts are pots, Yorkshire puddings and gravy is a meal on its own (?!), SPAM fritters are edible and a curd tart is a normal thing.

    I also get yelled at for saying bath like 'Baarf' not 'baff'.

    I had better prepare myself for UoH 2013 :')

    Confused Scottish person here, so does most of England pronounce "bath" as "barth"?? In my head only the strongest of English accents would do that.
    I've never heard pot before, I'd say bread roll, but I would eat Yorkshire puddings and gravy as a meal on its own

    Also teacakes = Tunnocks ones, with marshmallow?
