Cumbrian Dialect Challenge

Project: Cumbrian Dialect Words


How many Cumbrian dialect words and phrases can you discover? Make a list of words and phrases and crucially, what they mean, and send into school or keep them in your notebooks.

Our aim is to dedicate a large wall in our new school to Cumbrian words and phrases. This will help us all celebrate the historic and unique dialect of our area.

We already have local television interested in the project and a company ready to make stencils to put the words on the wall, so let’s make this happen!

How many words can you find? Which words do you and your family use?

If Cumbrian dialect is unfamiliar to you, can you start off by finding out about our counting words. Maybe you could research Cumbrian place names and let us know what you discover.


Happy hunting and good luck! We can’t wait to see what you discover!
