In Your Words
Do you mash, soak or brew your tea? Have you had bevers, docky or fourses?
Dialect is important. It connects us to people and places, and shapes who we are. The words we use, how we put them together and how we say them matters – to us, to others and to the rich and ever-changing history of language.
This community exhibition, in partnership with the University of Leeds’ Dialect and Heritage Project, celebrates East Anglian voices past and present. Featuring historic audio recordings from East Anglia of people speaking about food and farming, newly recorded interviews by project volunteers and interactive audio displays the exhibition promises to be aural feast. Visitors will also be able to take part cutting-edge dialect research and share their own dialect words with the project.
