They like what they say and they say what they bloody well like. But, from now on, Yorkshire men, and even Yorkshire women, when they can get a word in edgeways, have what they've always wanted - a willing audience.

I hear Craven college has been given pound;19,800 of national lottery money to "explore and document the way people in the Dales have used language to forge identity".

So, from now on, lifelong Dales-dwellers who raise their voice could find themselves accosted by a member of an army of 16 to 20-year-olds which is searching the county, recording equipment in hand, looking for the perfect Yorkshire twang.
