The ancient languages of Northumberland and Durham as spoken through the region’s dialects are as important to our heritage as Hadrian’s Wall, stottie cakes or the iconic song, “Blaydon Races”. And like any cultural icon they need to be understood, appreciated and preserved.

Northumbrian Words seeks to bring the our dialects to a wide audience through various media including sound and video clips as well as articles written in or about the dialect.
We are also working with like-minded organisations to provide sponsorships for various dialect-related activities throughout the region.
