Re: [WarOf1812] Re: Cultural Identities
Sorry my friend if I inadvertently caused you chagrin, but technically
you're from south of the Wear and in any Geordie manual of cultural identity
it places you as a "Southerner".
But then those of us born on the "Waall" have some pretty extreme attitudes
on how to categorise peoples. After all we consider anyone from west of
Hexham (Hexum) which is only about 15 miles from Newcastle a "Cumbrie" and
those from past Alnwick (Annik), only about 30 miles north, as "Furreners".
Even a true "Geordie" technically has to be born within the sound of the
shipyard hooters at Wallsend (Wazzend) ...so even thems as comes frum
Elswick, (only 5 miles away), is jus' plain oo't a luck...
