Collins Taak of the Toon by Sid Waddell

Book Description

Gain an insight into the English language via one of the UK's richest dialects: Geordie. From George Stephenson to The Animals to Viz, the North East has long had a successful creative culture, developing alongside its industrial history. Newcastle in particular has successfully reinvented itself as a centre of the arts, while still maintaining its own regional identity. This book is the definitive guide to the most distinctive element of that identity: the Geordie dialect. This book is a must for anyone with even a passing interest in the language of the North East, and also provides a thorough examination of the general state of English, from the traditional wit and wisdom of the Geordie perspective.

Set amid the pit villages of the North East and stretching from the 1920s, before the author's parents had even met, to the final closing of the mine and his mother's death in 1999, this title paints a picture of a colourful, tight knit community full of good times and hard work, god-fearing women and hard-drinking men.
