Geordie

Geordie is a nickname for a person from the Tyneside area of North East England,[1] and the language spoken by its inhabitants. The term is also used to refer to anyone from North East England.[2]

Geordie is a continuation and development of the language spoken by Anglo-Saxon settlers, initially employed by the ancient Brythons to fight the Pictish invaders after the end of Roman rule in Britain in the 5th century. The Angles, Saxons and Jutes who arrived became ascendant politically and culturally over the native British through subsequent migration from tribal homelands along the North Sea coast of mainland Europe. The Anglo-Saxon kingdoms that emerged in the Dark Ages spoke largely mutually intelligible varieties of what is now called Old English, each varying somewhat in phonology, morphology, syntax and lexicon. This linguistic conservatism means that poems by the Anglo-Saxon scholar the Venerable Bede translate more successfully into Geordie than into Standard English.[3]

In Northern England and the Scottish borders, then dominated by the kingdom of Northumbria, there developed a distinct Northumbrian Old English dialect. Later Irish migrants influenced Geordie phonology from the early 19th century onwards.[4][5]

The word "Geordie" can refer to a supporter of Newcastle United.[6] The Geordie Schooner glass was traditionally used to serve Newcastle Brown Ale.[7]

The Geordie dialect and identity are primarily associated with those of a working-class background. A 2008 newspaper survey found the Geordie accent the "most attractive in England".[8]

Geographical coverage

AC/DC vocalist Brian Johnson has a strong Geordie accent.[9]

When referring to the people, as opposed to the dialect, dictionary definitions of a Geordie typically refer to a native or inhabitant of Newcastle upon Tyne, England, or its environs,[10] an area that encompasses Blyth, Ashington, North Tyneside, Newcastle, South Tyneside and Gateshead.[11][12] This area has a combined population of around 700,000, based on 2011 census-data.

The term itself, according to Brockett, originated from all the North East coal mines.[13] The catchment area for the term "Geordie" can include Northumberland and County Durham[14][15] or be confined to an area as small as the city of Newcastle upon Tyne and the metropolitan boroughs of Tyneside.[1]

People from Sunderland differentiate themselves as "Mackems". The earliest known recorded use of the term found by an Oxford English Dictionary word hunt occurred as recently as 1988.[16][17]

Just as a Cockney is often colloquially defined as someone "born within the sound of the Bow bells", the term "Geordie" is sometimes defined in terms of "within spitting distance of the Tyne"[18] and thus the area more associated with the Geordie accent could be thought of[by whom?] as the watershed and bioregion of the River Tyne, and Geordies as its inhabitants. Academic journals refer to the Geordie dialect as "Tyneside English".[19][20][21][22]

Etymology

A number of rival theories explain how the term came about, though all accept that it derives from a familiar diminutive form of the name George,[23] "a very common name among the pitmen"[13][24] (coal miners) in North East England; indeed, it was once the most popular name for eldest sons in the region.[]

One explanation is that it was established during the Jacobite Rebellion of 1715. The Jacobites declared that the natives of Newcastle were staunch supporters of the Hanoverian kings, in particular of George I during the 1715 rebellion. This contrasted with rural Northumberland, which largely supported the Jacobite cause. If true, the term may have derived from the popular anti-Hanoverian song "Cam Ye O'er Frae France?",[25] which calls the first Hanoverian king "Geordie Whelps", a play on "George the Guelph".

Another explanation for the name is that local miners in the northeast of England used Geordie safety lamps, designed by George Stephenson, known locally as "Geordie the engine-wright",[26] in 1815[27] rather than the competing Davy lamps, designed by Humphry Davy, used in other mining communities. Using the chronological order of two John Trotter Brockett books, Geordie was given to North East pitmen; later he acknowledges that the pitmen also christened their Stephenson lamp Geordie.[13][24]

Alternatively; Geordie could also have been a derivative or continuation of the North Sea Germanic name Jordanes; which in-turn itself also derives from an Old Norse root word- jord ("land, earth") and possibly may have been brought over to the Eastern coast of Britain by Germanic or Nordic tribes; during Migration Period. Moreover, Roman bureaucrat and historian Jordanes bore this name; and consequently was believed to be a Romanised German author of Gothic background. Further supporting this hypotheses is that the Geordie dialect of English still retains the accent as well as many ancient words of Old English and Norse origin; which are usually not found in the other spoken regional dialects of Modern English.[original research?]

Linguist Katie Wales[28] also dates the term earlier than does the current Oxford English Dictionary; she observes that Geordy (or Geordie) was a common name given to coal mine pitmen in ballads and songs of the region, noting that such usage turns up as early as 1793. It occurs in the titles of two songs by songwriter Joe Wilson (1841-1875): "Geordy, Haud the Bairn" and "Keep your Feet Still, Geordie". Citing such examples as the song "Geordy Black", written by Rowland Harrison of Gateshead, she contends that, as a consequence of popular culture, the miner and the keelman had become icons of the region in the 19th century, and "Geordie" was a label that "affectionately and proudly reflected this," replacing the earlier ballad emblem, the figure of Bob Crankie.

In the English Dialect Dictionary of 1900, Joseph Wright gave the definition A man from Tyneside; a miner; a north-country vessel, quoting two sources from Northumberland, one from East Durham and one from Australia. The source from Durham stated, "In South Tyneside even, this name was applied to the Lower Tyneside men."[29]

Newcastle publisher Frank Graham's Geordie Dictionary states:

The origin of the word Geordie has been a matter of much discussion and controversy. All the explanations are fanciful and not a single piece of genuine evidence has ever been produced.

In Graham's many years of research, the earliest record he found of the term's use was in 1823 by local comedian Billy Purvis. Purvis had set up a booth at the Newcastle Races on the Town Moor. In an angry tirade against a rival showman, who had hired a young pitman called Tom Johnson to dress as a clown, Billy cried out to the clown:

Ah man, wee but a feul wad hae sold off his furnitor and left his wife. Noo, yor a fair doon reet feul, not an artificial feul like Billy Purvis! Thous a real Geordie! gan man an hide thysel! gan an' get thy picks agyen. Thou may de for the city, but never for the west end o' wor toon.[This quote needs a citation]

(Rough translation: "Oh man, who but a fool would have sold off his furniture and left his wife? Now, you're a fair downright fool, not an artificial fool like Billy Purvis! You're a real Geordie! Go on, man, and hide yourself! Go on and get your picks [axes] again. You may do for the city, but never for the west end of our town!")

Graham is backed up historically by John Camden Hotten, who wrote in 1869: "Geordie, general term in Northumberland and Durham for a pitman, or coal-miner. Origin not known; the term has been in use more than a century."[15] Using Hotten[15] as a chronological reference, Geordie has been documented for at least 249 years as a term related to Northumberland and County Durham.

Bad-weather Geordy was a name applied to cockle sellers:

As the season at which cockles are in greatest demand is generally the most stormy in the year - September to March - the sailors' wives at the seaport towns of Northumberland and Durham consider the cry of the cockle man as the harbinger of bad weather, and the sailor, when he hears the cry of 'cockles alive,' in a dark wintry night, concludes that a storm is at hand, and breathes a prayer, backwards, for the soul of Bad-Weather-Geordy.

-- S. Oliver, Rambles in Northumberland, 1835

Travel writer Scott Dobson used the term "Geordieland" in a 1973 guidebook to refer collectively to Northumberland and Durham.[14]

Phonology

The phonemic notation used in this article is based on the set of symbols used by Watt & Allen (2003). Other scholars may use different transcriptions.

Consonants

Geordie consonants generally follow those of Received Pronunciation, with these unique characteristics as follows:

  • // appearing in an unstressed final syllable of a word (such as in reading) is pronounced as [?n] (thus, reading is ['?i:d?n]).
  • Geordie is characterised by a unique type of glottal stops. /p, t, k/ can all be glottalised in Geordie, both at the end of a syllable and sometimes before a weak vowel.[30]
    • T-glottalisation, in which /t/ is realised by [?] before a syllabic nasal (e.g., button as ['bn?]), in absolute final position (get as []), and whenever the /t/ is intervocalic so long as the latter vowel is not stressed (pity as ['pi]).
    • Glottaling in Geordie is often perceived as a full glottal stop [?] but it is in fact more often realised as 'pre-glottalisation', which is 'an occlusion at the appropriate place of articulation and 'glottalisation', usually manifested as a short period of laryngealised voice before and/or after and often also during the stop gap'.[31] This type of glottal is unique to Tyneside English.[32]
  • Other voiceless stops, /p, k/, are glottally reinforced in medial position, and preaspirated in final position.[31]
  • The dialect is non-rhotic, like most British dialects, most commonly as an alveolar approximant [?], although a labiodental realisation [?] is also growing for younger females (this is also possible by older males, albeit rarer). Traditionally, intrusive R was not present, instead glottalising between boundaries, however is present in newer varieties.[31]
  • Yod-coalescence in both stressed and unstressed syllables (so that dew becomes [d?u:]).
  • /l/ is traditionally clear in all contexts, meaning the velarised allophone is absent. However, modern accents may periodically use [?] in syllable final positions, sometimes it may even be vocalised (as in bottle ['b]).[31]

Vowels

Monophthongs of Geordie (from Watt & Allen (2003:268)). Some of these values may not be representative of all speakers.
Length
  • For some speakers, vowel length alternates with vowel quality in a very similar way to the Scottish vowel length rule.[33]
  • Vowel length is phonemic for many speakers of Geordie and there is often no other phonetic difference between /?/ and /?:/ on one hand and /?/ and /?:/ on the other.[33] If traditional dialect forms are considered, /a/ also has a phonemic long counterpart (/a:/), but they contrast only before voiceless consonants. There are minimal pairs such as tack /tak/ vs. talk /ta:k/ (normal Geordie pronunciation: /t?:k/). If they are disregarded, this [a:] is best regarded as a phonetic realisation of /?:/ in certain words (roughly, those spelt with a). It occurs only in broad Geordie. Another [a:] appears as an allophone of /a/ before final voiced consonants in words such as lad [la:d].[34]
Phonetic quality and phonemic incidence
  • /i:, u:/ are typically somewhat closer than in other varieties; /u:/ is also less prone to fronting than in other varieties of BrE and its quality is rather close to the cardinal [u]. However, younger women tend to use a central [?:] instead.[33]
  • /i:, u:/ are monophthongs [i:, u: ~ ?:] only in morphologically closed syllables. In morphologically open syllables, they are realised as closing diphthongs [ei, ]. This creates minimal pairs such as freeze [f?i:z] vs. frees [f?eiz] and bruise [b?u:z ~ b:z] vs. brews [bz].[33][35] For simplicity, the monophthongal allophone of /u:/ is transcribed with [u:] throughout the article.
  • The HAPPY vowel is tense [i] and is best analysed as belonging to the /i:/ phoneme.[36]
  • As other Northern English varieties, Geordie lacks the FOOT-STRUT split, so that words like cut, up and luck have the same /?/ phoneme as put, sugar and butcher. The typical phonetic realisation is unrounded [?], but it may be hypercorrected to [?] among middle-class (especially female) speakers.[37]
  • The long close-mid vowels /e:, o:/ may be realised as monophthongs [e:, o:] or as opening diphthongs [, ]. Alternatively, /e:/ can be a closing diphthong [e?] and /o:/ can be centralised to [?:].[33] The opening diphthongs are recessive, as younger speakers reject them in favour of the monophthongal [e:, o: ~ ?:].[38]
  • Other, now archaic, realisations of /o:/ include [a:] in snow [sna:] and [a?] in soldiers ['sa?ldz].[33]
  • Geordie does not always adhere to the same distributional patters of vowels found in Received Pronunciation or even the neighbouring accents. Examples of that include the words no and stone, which may be pronounced [ni:] and [stn], so with vowels that are best analysed as belonging to the /i:/ and /e:/ phonemes.[33]
  • Many female speakers merge /o:/ with /?:/, but the exact phonetic quality of the merged vowel is uncertain.[33]
  • /ø:/ may be phonetically [ø:] or a higher, unrounded vowel [?:].[33] An RP-like vowel [:] is also possible.[35]
  • In broad Geordie, /ø:/ merges with /?:/ to [?:] under the influence of a uvular [?] that once followed it (when Geordie was still a rhotic dialect).[35][39] The fact that the original /?:/ vowel is never hypercorrected to [ø:] or [:] suggests that either this merger was never categorical, or that speakers are unusually successful in sorting those vowels out again.[35]
  • The schwa /?/ is often rather open ([?]). It also tends to be longer in duration than the preceding stressed vowel, even if that vowel is phonologically long. Therefore, words such as water and meter are pronounced ['w?d:] and ['mid:].[33] This feature is shared with the very conservative (Upper Crust) variety of Received Pronunciation.[40]
  • Words such as voices and ended have /?/ in the second syllable (so /'voes?z, '?nd?d/), rather than the /?/ of RP. That does not mean that Geordie has undergone the weak vowel merger because /?/ can still be found in some unstressed syllables in place of the more usual /?/. An example of that is the second syllable of seven /'s?v?n/, but it can also be pronounced with a simple schwa /?/ instead. Certain weak forms also have /?/ instead of /?/; these include at /?t/, of /?v/, as /?z/, can /k?n/ and us /?z/.[41]
  • As in other Northern English dialects, the BATH vowel is short /a/ in Geordie. There are very few exceptions to this rule; for instance, master, plaster and sometimes also disaster are pronounced with /?:/.[42]
  • Some speakers unround /?:/ to [?:].[33] Regardless of the rounding, the difference in backness between /?:/ and /a/ is very pronounced, a feature which Geordie shares with RP and some northern cities such as Stoke-on-Trent and Derby, but not with the accents of the middle north.[34]

  • As the transcription indicates, the second elements of /i?, u?/ are commonly as open as the typical Geordie realisation of /?/ ([?]).[39]
  • The first element of /æu/ is phonetically [ä] or [?][43] or an intermediate [æ].[31] Traditionally, this vowel was a monophthong [u:] and this pronunciation can still be heard, as can a narrower diphthong [?u].[41]
  • /ai/ is phonetically [äi], but the Scottish vowel length rule applied by some speakers of Geordie creates an additional allophone [?i] that has a shorter, higher and more front onset than the main allophone [äi]. [?i] is used in words such as knife [n?if], whereas [äi] is used in e.g. knives [näivz].[33] For simplicity, both of them are written [ai] in this article.

Vocabulary

The Geordie dialect shares similarities with other Northern English dialects, as well as with the Scots language (See Rowe 2007, 2009).

In her column for the South Shields Gazette, Dorothy Samuelson-Sandvid attests many samples of Geordie language usage, such as the nouns bairn ("child")[44] and clarts ("mud");[45] the adjectives canny ("pleasant")[46] and clag ("sticky");[45] and the imperative verb phrase howay ("hurry up!"; "come on!")[47]

Howay is broadly comparable to the invocation "Come on!" or the French "Allez-y!" ("Go on!"). Examples of common use include Howay man!, meaning "come on" or "hurry up", Howay the lads! as a term of encouragement for a sports team for example (the players' tunnel at St James' Park has this phrase just above the entrance to the pitch), or Ho'way!? (with stress on the second syllable) expressing incredulity or disbelief.[48] The literal opposite of this phrase is haddaway ("go away"); although not as common as howay, it is perhaps most commonly used in the phrase "Haddaway an' shite" (Tom Hadaway, Figure 5.2 Haddaway an' shite; 'Cursing like sleet blackening the buds, raging at the monk of Jarrow scribbling his morality and judgement into a book.'[49]).

Another word, divvie or divvy ("idiot"), seems to come from the Co-op dividend,[50] or from the two Davy lamps (the more explosive Scotch Davy[51] used in 1850, commission disapproved of its use in 1886 (inventor not known, nicknamed Scotch Davy probably given by miners after the Davy lamp was made perhaps by north east miners who used the Stephenson Lamp[27][52]), and the later better designed Davy designed by Humphry Davy also called the Divvy.[53]) As in a north east miner saying 'Marra, ye keep way from me if ye usin a divvy.' It seems the word divvie then translated to daft lad/lass. Perhaps coming from the fact one would be seen as foolish going down a mine with a Scotch Divvy when there are safer lamps available, like the Geordie, or the Davy.

The Geordie word netty,[54] meaning a toilet and place of need and necessity for relief[54][55][56] or bathroom,[54][55][56] has an uncertain origin,[57] though some have theorised that it may come from slang used by Roman soldiers on Hadrian's Wall,[58] which may have later become gabinetti in the Romanic Italian language[58] (such as in the Westoe Netty, the subject of a famous painting from Bob Olley[58][59]). However, gabbinetto is the Modern Italian diminutive of gabbia, which actually derives from the Latin cavea ("hollow", "cavity", "enclosure"), the root of the loanwords that became the Modern English cave,[60]cage,[61] and gaol.[62] Thus, another explanation would be that it comes from a Modern Romanic Italian form of the word gabinetti,[57] though only a relatively small number of Italians have migrated to the North of England, mostly during the 19th century.[63]

Some etymologists connect the word netty to the Modern English word needy. John Trotter Brockett, writing in 1829 in his A glossary of north country words...,[56] claims that the etymon of netty (and its related form neddy) is the Modern English needy[64] and need.[65]

Bill Griffiths, in A Dictionary of North East Dialect, points to the earlier form, the Old English níd; he writes: "MS locates a possible early ex. "Robert Hovyngham sall make... at the other end of his house a knyttyng" York 1419, in which case the root could be OE níd 'necessary'".[55] Another related word, nessy is thought (by Griffiths) to derive from the Modern English "necessary".[55]

A poem called "Yam" narrated by author Douglas Kew, demonstrates the usage of a number of Geordie words.[66][67]

In popular culture

The musicians Brian Johnson and Sting are Geordies.[100]

Brendan Foster[101] and Sid Waddell[102] have both worked as television sports commentators.

Cheryl, a former member of U.K. girl group Girls Aloud and judge on The X Factor, has a Geordie accent,[103] she says that she's "proud to be Geordie", as does singer-songwriter Joe McElderry.[103]

Dorfy, real name Dorothy Samuelson-Sandvid, was a noted Geordie dialect writer who once wrote for the South Shields Gazette.[104][105]

In the BBC Radio drama series The Archers, the character Ruth Archer is played as a Geordie.[106]
