That looks like a good film, the one of the boy in Barnsley. I could understand what they were saying and I'd like to watch the entire film.

I'm American but with a twist--my grandparents came from Yorkshire so I grew up hearing a dialect similar to that. Then, too, I'm married to a man from Burnley, Lancs who went to school in Yorkshire. We're older and that probably accounts for some of it too.

However--I could NOT understand that beautiful little Yorkshire girl. Barely a word of it. Could anyone understand that?
Oh, just noticed she's from Sheffield. The accent is so different. Adorable though, completely adorable.

Not really. the one thing you can differ is the way the letter H is pronunced.

I could understand almost every word she said, although I'm pretty familiar with the accent.
