To the rest of the world Yorkshire is just another English county, it is the largest county in England,and to those born within its boundardries it is unquestionably the greatest!
Yorkshire folk view themselves as the chosen ones and beam with pride at the stereotypes that come with being from ‘God’s own county’. But just how Yorkshire, or proper Yorkshire, are you?

10 problems only people from Yorkshire will understand:-

1. To you, ‘chuffed’ is an emotion.  To a lot of people ‘chuffed’ doesn’t mean anything, however in Yorkshire it is a legitimate emotion – and yes, it is in the dictionary.

2. You say ‘eh’ whenever you don’t understand something. Short, sweet but extremely effective, in Yorkshire uttering these two letters is the best way of signifying your absolute confusion. This made the dictionary too (albeit the urban version).

3.  Homemade Yorkshire puddings are the only option. (Picture: Getty) Sorry Aunt Bessie, you just won’t do. Homemade Yorkshire puddings are a real test of your Yorkshire roots. If you decide to go frozen, you will be judged.

4. Yorkshire Tea is the only tea that exists. In Yorkshire this is our holy water, for many it is our blood type. Do not suggest any other brand as we simply won’t recognise it. 13 pictures that prove Yorkshire is the most beautiful place in the UK Fun fact: Yorkshire Tea has made several cameos in the TV show Friends and we don’t let people forget that.

5. The word ‘the’ isn’t even a thing. We’ve all heard the rumours about this word’s existence, but we just don’t find it necessary.

6. Your accent strengthens when surrounded by fellow Yorkshire folk. In Yorkshire we love our accent, the broader the better, so it’s only natural to take it a step further when together.

7. Red roses simply do not exist.  Red rose? You mean white. Next.

8. You’re referred to as ‘our lass’ or ‘our lad’. How else would people be able to identify you without this title?
9. You’ve fallen victim to the bread cake/bread roll/tea cake argument. Relationships have been forever ruined by this argument, engage at your own risk.

10. You’ve also fallen victim to a scone vs scon pronunciation face-off.
