For each word, please tell us:

  • Why do you have this word, and where does it come from?
  • Do other members of your family use this word? If not, who is it connected to?
  • What does the word mean to you? Does it conjure up any particular memories?

We ask about where you live and where you come from so we can see how and if words move. We don’t need an exact address just a village, town or city that will help us place your word on a map!

By submitting your response you are giving the University of Leeds permission to use the text for the purposes of research and the dissemination of that research. If you would like to opt-out you may do so at any time by contacting us.
