Subject: RE: Origins: Who Wrote Dalesman's Litany?
There is a Bradford in Manchester that my mother (a Lancashire woman) always pronounced Bratford. I never heard her refer to the place on the worng side of the Pennines. As for the dialect, it's a song about how awful Yorkshire is - of course it's got some Lancastrian constructions:)
