The Cumbrian Accent Part Two

Updated on February 24, 2012

Part One Vocabulary

Hi Guys & Gal's :)


Well after part one was such a success I have brought you part two now here is you where you will start to see the language progress and your mimicking skills will be stretched as its not an easy accent to do.

However I have filled this hub full of useful things for you such as vocabulary at the first video and also the gaelic form of counting but have only gone up to ten and on part three we shall go up to twenty.

I hope you enjoy this and look forward to your responses.

Love Calpol25

Part Two - Owt & Nowt

Owt & Nowt

Okay Owt and Nowt are commonly used in cumbrian and you will need to know what they mean as these used in quite alot of sentences with the young and old, as I explain in the video. Owt & Nowt is also used in the other accents around Northern England such as Geordie, Lancashire and Yorkshire so these two words will come in handy when or if you visit this part of England.


Part Three - Oldest Cumbrian Phrase

The Old Phrase

Here is abit of useless information for you, this is the oldest cumbrian phrase and is still used today by the older generation and alot of the younger too.

As Gan Yam Pal. - Meaning I am going home mate has been used in cumbria for hundreds of years so dont be surprised if you do hear this phrase used.

Numbers - One to Ten In Cumbrian Gaelic

Did You Enjoy This Hub?

See results

Good Bye

Okay we have come to the end of Part Two as I did not want to bore you with too much information as then you would get bored and switch off - so the right of this capsule we have the old Cumbrian Gaelic form of counting, I only go to number ten here and will go further in the Part Three but try and copy my counting and then it will help you to pick up the accent, but remember you need to be able to speak fast as cumbrian is a spoken very quickly and you may not always catch what is said, so by counting this will help you gain the speed you need to develop your accent and your understanding of the person speaking :)

Counting In The Cumbrian Gaelic

I know that many of you will be trying to count in it so here is what they are written down so that you can refer to them when counting. :)

1 - Yan or Wan

2 - Tyan

3 - Tethera

4 - Methera

5 - Pimp

6 - Sethera

7 - Lethera

8 - Hovera

9 - Dovera

10 - Dick - Pronounced "Deek"

Thanks again and hope that you have enjoyed this one..

Until Next Time :)

      I've been trying to teach myself Gaelic for a few years.. no one to practice on tho.. so this has been great fun. Hard to know where (what I'm learning) would fit in. How would I know?

      Good fun Callum! I like the counting bit - I've added it to my various other languages where it's the only thing I know! (French is the only language I speak properly - apart from English, I hope.) 'Pimp' is the same as Welsh - lived there a while & picked up that but little else. Voted up, useful and funny (should be 'fun' really).
