    February 4, 2005

The UK’s online yellow pages,, is reported to now understand different slang words.

…the new website also recognises words like cludgie (toilet in Scotland), stotty (bread in Newcastle), laithe (barn in Yorkshire) and sough (drains in Lancashire).

Infact, if someone is suffering from toothache in Yorkshire a quick search for axels (meaning teeth) would bring up a list of the area’s nearest dentists.

Oxford English Dictionary slang consultant Jonathon Green was all praise for the new and unusual search engine.

“There are suggestions regional dialects are dying. Far from it, it’s alive and well,” the report quoted Green as saying.

You should take a butchers! 😉
