How would you describe someone who is a bit moody? In Barrow-in-Furness, you might say that they are narky, while in the Midlands, they’re probably mardy. Using material from the BBC’s Voices survey, this work explores regional English in the twenty-first century, painting a portrait of the British people and uncovering facts about local language.
