The Language Up North

While being here in Manchester, working with various northern actors I have been introduced to a new vocabulary. Mainly Cumbrian, the words are lovely so I thought I'd share them.

To Ratch - To search for or To find a fine woman

Ladgeful - To be embarrassed

Flaite - To be scared

Mithered - To be persistently bothered

Radge - To be angry or mad
