Why should they? Don't they speak 'mummerset' in Suffolk?

Yet to be confirmed, but we may well be in Norfolk in 2014, organised by FOND, best acronym in the business for "Friends of the Norfolk Dialect" - not far from Suffolk.

This sounds like huge fun. Perhaps we should do something like this here on the other side of the pond.

"speaking" of dialects: Did you hear about the last speaker of the Cromarty fisherfolk dialect in Scotland who died recently?
The first report of this i saw had a link to a page with a glossary
of words.
http://www.npr.org/2012/10/07/162461957/scottish-dialects-last-speaker-dies
http://www.cnn.com/2012/10/05/world/europe/scotland-dead-dialect/index.html
The last person that retired engineer Bobby Hogg, 92, was able to speak to was his brother Gordon, who died last year.

here are some other dialects..http://www.newstatesman.com/blogs/lifestyle/2012/10/death-cromarty-fisherfolk-dialect

and more info here: http://www.ambaile.org.uk/en/item/item_page.jsp?item_id=131892

I never picked up the local dialect in Somerset when I was little. I remember that some of the older members of the community talked in such a way that I could not understand them. Nobody talks that way nowadays, there are lots of words missing from the vocabulary. Unfortunately I cannot remember them as they made no sense to me at the time.

However, I do find that I can understand enough of what Sid says to make sense of what he says! Must be an age and experience thing.
