Pitmatic : Talk of the North East Coal Field
More than just a gathering of mining terms, this collection is an heartfelt attempt to bring together the words spoken by miners of the North East pits and how they relate to the wider language world of the region and its literature of story and song. It brings together the pit literature--its words, jokes, stories and songs--that is fast disappearing and helps attest to the remarkable vitality of the region's dialect as well as the inventiveness of its speakers.
