Yorkshire Accent

Yorkshire is the largest county in the UK in the north of England. The accent is sometimes known as Broad Yorkshire or Tyke, and is often considered a country accent, but because the area is so large, there can be variation, such as in cities like Bradford and Leeds - but there are a lot of shared elements.
