Of course this list is just the tip of the iceberg - there are hundreds of expressions in the Derbyshire dialect - so feel free to share more local lingo on our Facebook page.
A common greeting around these parts, in which 'ay-up' means 'hello' and 'duck' is a term of endearment. This greeting is a Derbyshire resident's way of saying "how do you do?" A term used when it is raining heavily. Meaning 'hold your horses'. Or 'wait a moment'. This is used by Derbyshire folk to express utter disbelief. A round bread roll. The name for this is different depending on which county you go to. Some towns in Derbyshire have cob shops, which has been known to confuse people visiting from the south. When somebody is sulking and takes things to heart very easily. i.e "Hes being mardy today." More widely known as "let me have a look!" This one, of course, translates to 'it's nothing to do with me'. A shortened version of thank you. i.e "Ta very much" or "Im ok, ta". This is basically us Derbyshire folk being lazy and not pronouncing "Isnt it" properly. i.e "Nice day int it." Or in non-Derbyshire terms - "he's in a bad mood". This is what we say instead of saying myself. For example - "better get mesen to work." If someone says this, they mean they sky is grey and it looks like it's about to rain. To report someone to the authorities. i.e "dob im in t'police'. For someone to exclaim that they are 'knackered', they must be extremely tired. Exhausted, even. Used to describe a person who is loud and talks a lot, to the point where it is annoying. i.e "she's a right gobby cow, that one". An exclamation one would make if they were feeling the chill of cold temperatures. A shortened and informal form of "sorry". A way of asking someone whether or not they are making tea.
