A new interactive map is showcasing the unique dialect of Nottinghamshire.

The Celebrating Notts Language Project, led by Professor Natalie Braber from Nottingham Trent University, has gathered more than 100 local words used by people across the county.

The project aims to showcase the varied linguistic heritage of people who call Nottingham and Nottinghamshire ‘home’.

Those working on the project have spoken to hundreds of people including schoolchildren, ex-miners, poets and musicians.

Participants were asked to share what language means to them, such as their favourite local expressions or work-related vocabulary.

The end product is an interactive map with hundreds of local expressions, broken down by location.

Popular words and phrases include ‘me duck’ and ‘mardy’.
