If you travelled the length and breadth of the UK, you’d be met by a huge variety of dialects and words.
From the Cockney rhyming slang in parts of London and Scouse accents in Liverpool, to entirely different languages in parts of Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and Cornwall, there is incredible diversity in the way that British people speak.
New data from Google Trends offers an insight into these regional variations. By looking at the most uniquely searched slang words in each city, we can see slang words that are only used in certain parts of the country.
Localised slang words on the platform ranged from “snout” in Edinburgh, to “pony” in London and “rig” in Cardiff.
