hiya i suppose in our younger days we would have been as puzzled calling a book a magazine,my gran used to have, the post,illusterated, and john bull, and she wouldn't call them books, or magazines, they were weekly's,
i never understood why we had so many sunday newspapers at home when i was young i had the job of fetching them,my dad would say each sunday other goin fut papers and fetch me 10 woodbines anall.i was about 10 or 11,at the time
the papers were,empire news, express,dispatch,pictorial,people, reynolds news,news of the world, seven in all.
ps if dad was working sunday he would bring home two scotish sunday papers sunday post and sunday mail one had a childrens section with the broons and oor wully, i remember saying that the spellings are all wrong and his answer was thats are the spayk up theer, not like us.

My Grandma used to use the word 'frame' in the context of her telling us, when we were kids and helping us to put our shoes on to 'frame yer foot'.

As well as "aster" there's also "astle" - as in "astle claht thee if tha dunt gee.o'er"..

A tuppenny Custard, cut in two:-a bit "wet" and "wobbly" IIRC

I think the second one speaks for itself.

Yes - 'watch', with the 'a' pronounced as in 'watter'. There's also 'toneet' as in the question "otter gooin' aht toneet?" And then o' cooerce, when it's dark tha puts thi 'leet' on..

'Siddi" can also be 'sithi' - from "see thee".
