THE WAY Huddersfield people speak is to become the subject of a university study.

English Language student Kate Whisker, of Lancaster University, is seeking your help in compiling her research on Yorkshire dialects.

The accent and dialect of Huddersfield was last studied in the 1970s and Kate wants to see how language in the town has changed over the past 30 years.

Volunteers aged 18-22, 45-55 and 65-75 will be invited to talk about their work, hobbies and holidays during a 45 minute interview at their home.

Kate said: “My interest in Huddersfield came about as a result from a case study I carried out on a speaker from Emley as part of my degree. I’m from Selby, in North Yorkshire, and wanted to do my research on a variety of Yorkshire.”

If you are interested in taking part or would like more information phone Kate on 847488 or 07719 997889 or email: .
