Coffee Morning: Yorkshire Dialect

28th Oct 2022
10:30 am - 11:30 am

Dr Fiona Douglas, Yorkshire Dialect speaker and Associate Professor in English Language at the University of Leeds, will give an overview of the project and of the rich digitised collection.

Dialect and heritage matter. They connect us to the past, the present, and to specific people and places. Dialects are living heritage that we carry within us, giving us a sense of who we are, where we come from, and where we belong.

Working with our five partner museums, we are keen to get people talking about dialect, their linguistic and cultural heritage, and sharing their language, stories and memories. We think, dialect speaks!

Tickets may be purchased online through Eventbrite (a booking fee is payable) or in person through the Box Office when the Manor House is open. Tickets may be available on the door but will be subject to availability and admission cannot be guaranteed.

The talk will also be streamed online. You may register online here for free.
