Who wants to guess the complexity of ' New furloug

Brace yourself folks

Didn't find your answer?

Brace yourself, folks, I predict the August furlough is going to be messy.

Lots of apportionment. Working days and hours issues.

At least we have time on our side.

Under the Government's 24/7 allocation, say an employee puts in 20 hours a week for four weeks, four hours a day, Monday to Friday. There are 720 hours from 1-30 August, so the furlough claim is for 640/720 of his pay for that period.

Then just tag on a day's holiday for 31st and tjob's a guddun.

I'd say that. There are no spelling rules as Yorkshire is, by and large, a spoken language.

And, with Yorkshire being such a huge area, there are different words. I'd say reyt, not reet. People in Sheffield say loizin, round here, it'd be lossin. People in Hull work nahn ter fahve, have whaht fern bocsis and drink kerkerkerler.

@ cheshire Nah then lass, tha's probably reet. (or reyt)

@lion When you say reyt, are you pronouncing it as reet? I didn't realise Hull had it's own dialect until I started frequenting it in the mid 2000's, when I became friends with a mate who lived there. The nahn ter fahve is spot on, and I still find it strange. I've found the broadest accents are from certain parts of Sheffield and Barnsley. Charlie Williams being a classic example. My accent is quite soft, coming from North Yorkshire, although I lived in Doncaster for about 15 years, and still quite a have a few friends and clients from there.

Rate.

Barnsley is probably the last bastion of dialect. It's a very strong accent.

My wife struggles with the silent w in Dodworth and Cudworth whereas the w is pronounced in Hemsworth and Wentworth. I tell her it's silent after a d.
