Dear wikipedians I made this article as I myself come from cheshire, and understand the difference between the local dialect and that of stafordshire. However, the dialect I talked about isn't that much diferent from the dialects of stafordshie, so please feel free to delete it if you feel the need to.

Stub[edit]

Im very sorry, but is a cheshire dialect really 'Indo European'? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.132.228.42 (talk) 18:00, 26 March 2008 (UTC)

Yes, it's Indo-European. It's a dialect of English, which is a Germanic language. Germanic is one of the many Indo-European languages. I have to say, I live in East Cheshire and, although I often hear a Manchester accent, it's certainly not what most people would call the local dialect and it's not spoken by a majority. I think the situation is more complicated than "Liverpool spoken in the West, Manchester in the East". The actual subject of this article is Cheshire dialect though. This is related to Staffordshire English and it's found in books by Alan Garner and in the works of the Pearl Poet. --86.25.238.58 (talk) 19:37, 25 May 2009 (UTC)

Midlands/North?[edit]

This article describes it as being a Midlands accent, but people from Cheshire like to bang on about being in the North rather than the Midlands. Salopian (talk) 01:55, 24 July 2010 (UTC)

Well technically Cheshire is in the North West. Besides, who calls themselves a "Midlander", there's a Northern and Southern identity, no Midland one. XD Kentynet (talk) 18:02, 6 May 2011 (UTC)


Amalgamation?[edit]

Although the cited source mentions that there is very great similarity with the Lancashire Dialect, it also states that the County Palatine of Chester remained fairly isolated from the other counties and that the language and culture developed somewhat independently.

Is the word 'Amalgamation' ,in the opening paragraph, appropriate in explaining the similarity with the dialects of border counties? Or should there instead be an explanation of independent yet similar evolution of the language from Anglo-Saxon origins?

The word 'Amalgamation' hints of the Cheshire dialect being constructed of an imported mish-mash of other dialects rather than a significant and independent dialect in itself. (Cesdeva (talk) 21:50, 20 September 2013 (UTC))
